The Church participates in the buddy backpack program that provides food to kids who have been identified as not getting enough food at home. The church participates by providing food and by assisting with packing the backpacks once a month on a regular basis.
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.
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.
Fall has finally arrived and soon it will be Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for each and every day of our lives. Please spend some time during this month to reflect on all your blessings during this past year and thank God for each and every one of them.
Thank you so much for supporting us in “Operation Bandana.” We received over $400 to send to our men and women in the military. These mean so much to them when they are away from home and family.
Also thanks for your support in helping us collect lotion for the “Red Boxes.” These will be given to the women in prison for Christmas. Many times this is all they receive. Thanks again.
November is the month when we have the opportunity to give to the Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina. The children in these homes are there because they have been taken from homes that are in crisis. Some of the families have just fallen on hard times and need some help while children from other families have been abused, neglected, or abandoned. Most of these children are coming from families that are un-churched. In these homes, they are cared for by loving adults who make sure that their physical and spiritual needs are men. You will receive envelopes and inserts in your bulletin concerning this offering later on this month. Please pray for these children and their families and give so this very important work can continue to help spread the love of God.
The WMU Day of Prayer will be held on Monday, November 4th. One of the locations will be our church. We will meet in the fellowship hall at 10:30am. All women of the church are invited to attend this special time of prayer. We have invited several other churches to join us.
The Mission Action-Study Circle will meet right after the Day of Prayer. Please remember to bring your Christmas cards to the meeting so we can get them ready for the inmates at Harnett Correctional Center. Remember these cards must depict the true message of Christmas. The words and messages should refer to the true meaning of Christmas being the birth of Christ.
Our meetings are a time to study about our missionaries, pray for our missionaries, plan and carry out mission projects, and fellowship together as sisters in Christ. I invite every woman in the church to come and be a part of our wonderful mission group.
