Baptism Sunday: Please join us on Sunday, May 2nd at 11am for Baptism Sunday. We give God praise for the baptisms of Kaylen Tyson, Sophie McLean, and Ashley Blivens. Baptism is open to anyone who will profess Jesus as Lord and Savior
National Day of Prayer Service: The service will be on May 6th at Harnett County Veterans Park from 12:00 noon – 1pm. The theme: Lord, pour out your Love, Life, and Liberty. “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” 2 Corinthians 3:17
Summer Sermon Series: Starting Sunday, May 16th Pastor Chris will be preaching a summer sermon series on stewardship adapted from Randy Alcorn's book "The Treasure Principle: Discovering the Secret of Joyful Giving". We will also use this book on Wednesday evenings at 6pm for Bible Study in the Sanctuary. The church will have some of these books available, or you may want to order your own copy.
Graduate Recognition Sunday: This special day will be held on June 6th at 11am. We will honor all high school and college graduates from our church. If you or a family member will be graduating this year, please contact Rev. Christian Justice. Please send pictures for the slide show to Betty Emerson. Everyone is invited to the Graduate Luncheon in our new Family Life Center. Lunch for our graduates and their guest/family will be paid for by the Youth Council. All other adults (over age 16) will pay $10.00 per person. Ed’s Catering will provide the meal. If you will be attending, please complete the insert in the bulletin or call the church office.
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 continues to wrap up 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 April 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: Please place your donated items in the bin outside the church office. The items 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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
