Ellington Youth Night:  Ellington Youth Night is held each month (except June and July) at Ellington Studios.  This is a great opportunity for youth to have fun on a Friday night and hear a good message.  Whether you're attending for the first time, encouraging your youth to go, or getting your youth to bring a friend, this is a wonderful time of fun and fellowship.​ The next Ellington Youth Night will be held in August 2019.​​​

The cost per person will be $1,500 and the construction team will have to take an additional $1,500 for materials. Donations: Please make a check to Neill's Creek Baptist Church and in the memo line write, "Mission Trip Fund." A fundraiser for the Cuba Mission Team will be planned in the coming months.


NCBC Tree of Life: Each leaf can be purchased at a minimum donation of $250.00. The leaf can be engraved in honor/in memory of a person or with a personal message. If you have already purchased a leaf, please give your information to Patsy Edwards 919-235-2850.


Buddy Backpack Help: The Buddy Backpack Ministry packs backpacks with food items for hungry children in local elementary schools to take home with them for the weekend. Children are recommended for this food assistance ministry by teachers, guidance counselors, and social workers. In partnership with other local churches, Neill's Creek Baptist takes one Friday morning a month (8:30am) to pack approximately 150 back-packs and distribute to local elementary schools. This vital ministry is in need of additional volunteers from NCBC for the once a month Friday morning packing and distribution of the backpacks. The packing location is Angier Baptist Church's multipurpose building. To volunteer to help, please contact Mrs. Frances Johnson.


Ladles of Love: We are collecting clothing for the new warmer season. Please place your donation items in the bin outside the church office. These will be distributed to those in need.

Church Cemetery Update - Memorial Markers for unmarked graves: Over the past two years, our Church Cemetery Committee obtained the services of Mr. Brian Avery to make a study of our cemetery plots in hopes of determining the location of unmarked graves. This research disclosed the location of 295 unmarked graves of adults and children. In an effort to properly mark these graves and honor the deceased, the Cemetery Committee worked with O Quinn, Peebles, Phillips Funeral Home in Lillington to design and purchase markers for these graves. Each marker will be 10 inches wide and will lie flush with the ground. The marker contains the engraving of a cross for an adult and an engraving of a lamb for a child. Sixty of these grave markers have been purchased already. Paul Phillips, owner of the funeral home provided a large engraved monument which has already been placed in the cemetery, in proximity to many of the unmarked graves, explaining the purpose and meaning of the smaller markers. This generous gift and other assistance in the project from Paul Phillips has been greatly appreciated. Anyone who wishes to purchase a grave marker for the remaining 235 unmarked graves may do so at a cost of $13.50 each. A list of donors will be placed in the Easter Sunday bulletin. All gifts should be made to NCBC and designated for "grave markers".
