Coming Events and Opportunities

*************************************************************

​DUE TO IMPACTS RELATED TO THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC, PLEASE CHECK WITH THE CHURCH OFFICE OR FOLLOW THE CHURCH'S SOCIAL MEDIA FOR SCHEDULE UPDATES AND CHANGES


Virtual Worship Services via YouTube: There will be no in-person gatherings on Sunday, December 27th and Sunday, January 3rd. We will tentatively plan on resuming Wednesday night activities on January 6th and bring your own Communion is tentatively planned for Sunday, January 10th at 11 am in the sanctuary.


Communion: The Lord’s Supper will be celebrated during the morning worship service on January 10th. Please remember to bring your own bread and juice for Communion.


Baptist Men's Sunday: Our 2020 Baptist Men’s Sunday is Jan. 31st. Make plans to join us on this special Sunday as our Baptist Men lead our Worship. 


Faith Promise: For those who made a Faith Promise, the giving period for your three year commitment began Sunday January 3rd 2021. When you give toward your Faith Promise, please designate your gift with the word (MAGNIFY) on the envelope, or memo line of your check, or with an e-note via your online giving. This designation is important as it will allow Furman to keep track of your giving toward your Faith Promise, should you have any questions in the future. If you have previously designated your gift toward Facilities Expansion or Family Life Center, you will now want to use the word "MAGNIFY" to make sure your giving is applied toward your Faith Promise. Remember that our 2021 church budget includes the monthly mortgage for the Family Life Center and all giving toward the MAGNIFY campaign serves to pay down the loan, and reduce our interest, so that we can be debt free in a decade. 


Parking at NCBC:  Construction materials are now on site for the building of our Family Life Center.  As a result, we ask that you please park on the north side (HWY 210) of the Sanctuary.  As much as possible, let's avoid the south side of the parking lot where construction materials have been placed.  This will help ensure our safety!  Thanks for your cooperation.  


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 is scheduled for January 29 from 7-9 pm.


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.

Ladles of Love Soup Kitchen: ​As cooler weather approaches, we will be collecting coats, blankets, sweaters, scarves, gloves, long-sleeve shirts, and other winter items. Please place your donation items in the bin outside the church office. These will be distributed to those in need of warm clothes. Ladles of Love is located at 301 N. Main Street in Lillington, NC 27546.  Ladles of Love will receive donations at this mailing address and there is a Go-Fund-Me account for online giving.  Website: www.ladlesofloveharnett.com   For more information, please contact Larry Alexander.
Email Address: info@ladlesofloveharnett.com.


Remember Social Distancing: Please help us fight Covid-19 by practicing respectful social distancing inside our sanctuary. While masks are not required, some people chose to wear them. Please be respectful of those wearing a mask and do not try to shake their hand, hug, or get within 6 feet of them if you are not also wearing a mask. Assume that if someone has a mask on that they, or someone they love, is more vulnerable to this virus. Let’s all work together and each do our part to continue to keep our worship gatherings safe and welcoming for everyone. 


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.
