NCMO 2020

North Carolina State Missions Offering

During the month of September, the North Carolina Baptists collect a special offering to support our state's mission efforts. Donations go to help missionaries, mission projects, camps, and church plants. Please join us by investing in the spread of the gospel throughout our state. Contributions can be made in person on Sunday mornings utilizing the special offering envelopes, online HERE or by mail. For more information about the offering, visit the NC Baptist Mission Offering website


The Daily 3

At its beginning, The Daily 3 was a tool we used to communicate with you during the first weeks of the pandemic. We wanted our communication to be clear, concise and consistent and The Daily 3 was born. A short video highlighting the three most pressing announcments or information points we wanted to highlight for the day. As we have moved along in the process of taking our next steps together and things have stabilized a bit, we have adjusted how and when we communicate with you and utilized new tools and techniques to make our information more helpful to you. To that end, The Daily 3 has transformed into a way for Pastor David to communicate Biblical truths, scripture, prayer points and additional resources he finds helpful. Our time together on Sunday morning is brief and many times he feels led to share more throughout the week. You can find more information about The Daily 3 and its transformation and purpose HERE. To watch daily episodes, visit our Facebook page, YouTube Channel or our website. To listen to the episodes, check out our podcast

BCH Food Drive

North Carolina Baptist Children's Homes Food Round Up - COLLECTION EXTENDED

The Baptist Children's Homes (BCH) annual food round up that normally occurs in April was postoned due to the pandemic and their supplies are running low. The food roundup provides months of supplies and food for the hundreds of children in their care. This year has been especially challenging because of the delay in receiving the much needed supplies from their supporters. BCH is one of our missions partners and they need our help now more than ever. You can find the list of the most needed items HERE. Please pick up a few items for them next time you are at the store or place an online order. A collection bin is located at the back door of the administration building. You may drop off food or supplies there anytime between now and Wednesday, September 30. If you are unable to drop items off, please let Angela know and she can arrange for pick up. You can also bring your donations to the Welcome Center before the in-person worship service on Sunday mornings at 10:30am.
