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.
What a beautiful Thanksgiving Day we were blessed with this year. I hope everyone enjoyed the day with family and friends and remembered all the many blessings that God blessed us with during this past year.
Now we are entering such a special time of the year, Advent. During this time, we prepare our hearts for the coming of the Christ Child. It is such a beautiful time of the year. Our church will be beautifully decorated during the Hanging of the Greens. We will enjoy singing the Christmas Carols, hearing the Christmas story read and the messages preached based on this story, hearing the adult choir’s Christmas Cantata and enjoying the reception that follows, going Christmas Caroling followed by the ham, egg, and pancake dinner sponsored by the Brotherhood, and the Christmas Eve Service. There are so many things planned to help us prepare ourselves for the arrival of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Let’s make sure we make lots of room in our hearts and lives during this Christmas season for Him.
It is at this time of year that we remember our International Missionaries. We can give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, the CBF Global Missions, or both. CBF tells us, “You Can Change the World! One Community at a Time” and the Lottie Moon Offer-ing tells us, “Your Prayers Transform Lives.” These themes are so very true. We need to pray for our Missionaries everyday of the year, and we need to give to help them carry out their mission, “to spread the Gospel to every corner of the world.” We cannot all go to the mission field, but we can pray and give. Please pray for our missionaries and prayerfully consider your part in giving to help them in their many ministries.
The Mission Action Study Circle will meet on December 10, 2018. We will meet at the church at 10:30 and go to Briggs in Cary for our Christmas Brunch.
I encourage every woman in the church to become a part of our group. This is a wonderful way to form close friendships as we learn about missions and take part in mission projects.
