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.

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.
At our last meeting we had decided on a Cinco de Mayo celebration with Mexican themed foods. We are shooting for May 3, 2020. God willing, we will be able to meet that day.
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.
Hi everyone. I miss seeing all of you so very much, and I hope everyone is well. I am not bored because there is plenty in my yard and house to keep me busy, but it is so hard not being able to be with everyone. Maybe this will soon be over, and we can get back to meeting and working on our projects. I am going to include some information about WMU in this article that I hope will help women in our church who are not active in our group understand more about us.
WMU is an organization for all women in the church 18 years of age and older.
Our 2019-2020 WATCHWORD IS: ”My dear friends, stand firm and don’t be shaken. Always keep busy working for the Lord. You know that everything you do for him is worthwhile” (1 Cor. 15:58). Our MISSION is: “to inform and inspire Christians to influence their world for Christ.”
The primary work of WMU is to lead the church and WMU members to:
Pray for and give to missions
Learn about missions
Develop spiritually toward a mission lifestyle
Participate in the work of the church and the denomination
WMU promotes North Carolina Missions, International Missions, and North American Missions.
Our circle, the Mission Action- Study Circle, meets the 2nd Monday of each month at 12:30 pm in the church fellowship hall. All those who want to go to lunch before the meeting meet at the Red Barn at 11:00am.
We invite all women of the church to become a part of WMU. It is such a wonderful time of Bible Study, Missions, and Christian Fellowship.
I sincerely hope to see everyone before too long. Continue to follow safe health practices until we can be out and about!
Carolyn Broadwell, WMU Director
