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 backpacks and distribute to local elementary schools. The packing location is Angier Baptist Church's multipurpose building.
The church has numerous committees from Outreach, to caregiving, and many other functions of the Church. Speak to Pastor Chris or to one of the Deacons for more information.
Outreach Committee -
We are glad that everyone remains safe at home. We continue to pray for Ken Jones in his recovery. It is truly great news about Kenneth’s transplant and his recovery from the surgery. We want to continue to reach out to one another as this social distancing strains at the fabric of our society.
Let us touch one another’s life, without touching physically. Don’t forget about the people we have been helping. Ladles of Love continues to need clothing donations. Since the beginning of this social shutdown they have been unable to collect clothes. If you can help, please call Larry Alexander at 910-336-8251 (his new number).
Don’t forget about Across All Borders. Joeth Strickland and her family have continued to operate the charity and have had a decided impact on several local families as well as continuing to pack and ship for other missions.
Be in prayer for those children from the tutoring program as we miss them sorely. The teachers and staff miss the love and challenge of teaching.
We can be a church and not be in a building. It falls to us now to reach out and coordinate efforts so that our impact is felt in our community at this time. While we are not able until the quarantine is lifted to visit our communities, we can get the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in front of them and be the witness we are called to be.
Outreach isn’t just invitation to church. It is service to those around us. Be the feet and hands of Christ, even 6-8 feet apart! God Bless you all.
The Neill's Creek Baptist Men are committed to serving those in need. They provide Thanksgiving meals to needy families, and do maintenance/construction/repair work for those who cannot take care of it themselves. The Baptist Men meet monthly for a Brotherhood Breakfast.
Summer is flying by so fast. School has begun, and it will not be long before a new church year will begin. Some of us will remain in the same positions we had last year, and others of us will begin serving in new positions. New beginnings are exciting. The Mission Action Study Circle will begin a new year, and we will start doing new mission projects. In September, we will be given the opportunity to support the North Carolina Missions Offering. The theme this year is: “Relief for Today HOPE FOR TOMORROW,” and the goal for 2021 is $2.1 million. Our theme verse is Romans 15:13 which reads “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe in Him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” As we pray and give to this offering, remember that all of our gifts support vital ministries that offer love and hope in the name of Jesus. Our September mission emphasis will be gathering cleaning supplies for our Charity Rebuild Center in Rose Hill. You may bring these to our September meeting or the following Sunday (19th ). The Mission Action Study Circle will meet in the fellowship hall on September 13, 2021 at 10:00am. This is the beginning of a new year, and I would like to invite all women of the church to become a part of our circle. Wonderful friendships are formed as we fellowship together, study missions, do mission projects, and pray for our missionaries
