Coming Events and Opportunities

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

​​​Ellington Youth Night:  Ellington Youth Night continues to be held each month 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.


Fellowship Hall Expansion Project: Those wishing to contribute money towards the fellowship hall renovation and expansion project may make a designated gift to the "Facilities Expansion Fund". If writing a check, please make it to the church and designate Facilities Expansion Fund in the memo line. If giving cash, please write Facilities Expansion Fund on the envelope. ​


Blessing of the Animals: The Outreach Committee invites you to a BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS on Saturday, May 16 from 10:00-11:30 am in the church parking lot and adjacent grassy area. In the first book of the Bible, Genesis, we read about God creating all the creatures who would live on land and in the sea. He called them good. Then He created man and woman to be responsible for all the living creatures. He called them good, too. Come join us as we celebrate the unique relationship we have with our animal friends at a Blessing of the Animals. Bring your pets (on leashes, in carriers, cages or aquariums), and Pastor Chris will bless them, and bless us as their caretakers. We will have refreshments for humans and their furry/feathery/finned friends! Area veterinarians and pet-related businesses will be invited to set up tables to promote their services.


Take a Kid Fishing: "Take a Kid Fishing Day" will be Sunday, May 20th at Fred Dupree's Pond (located beside the church cemetery). Lunch will be provided (hot dogs and hamburgers). We need fishing poles and volunteers to teach children how to cast a line, bait a hook, and help them catch and release their fish.


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.


Dylan Scott Memorial: Anyone wishing to make a memorial donation in memory of Dylan Scott may make the check payable to Neill’s Creek Baptist Church and designate it for the “Dylan Scott Memorial.” The funds will be used to purchase a leaf on the tree of life in his memory and any additional funds will be used for a scholarship fund to Ellington Studios.

​​

Collecting Items for the Homeless: John Johnson and Larry Alexander, volunteer chaplains at Central Harnett Hospital, are collecting blankets, coats, and sweatshirts (in good condition) of all sizes to distribute to the homeless. A collection bin will be placed outside the church office for any donations.
