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.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Even though 2020 was very different from the usual, we here at Neill’s Creek Baptist Church experienced such a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas season. So much sharing, love, and joy were a wonderful part of our church family. As we begin this New Year and look forward, let us keep all of the thankfulness, sharing, love, and joy a part of our everyday lives.
Thank you to all who supported our International Mission Offering. This supports our missionaries as they give their lives to spread the Love of Jesus to those who have never heard. Many times they don’t live in the best conditions or they live in dangerous areas where they have to spread the Word in secret.
The Mission Action Study Circle will not meet in January due to the rise in COVID-19 cases.
We will put together our treats for the staff and teachers at North Harnett School showing our appreciation for all their hard work teaching and leading our children at our February meeting.
