June Special Service – Sunday, June 3
Do you need hope? Do you feel lost with God? Are you undergoing a health crisis? Our special service on Sunday, June 3, at 10:30 a.m. will be a testimony from Troy’s mother Vicky. She has undergone a severe health trial which included a heart transplant. She will be giving her testimony on what God has been doing in her life over the past two years. This is a testimony that will encourage your faith. Please make plans to come to this special service.

Invite your friends, family, and neighbors to these summer events:
Scavenger Hunt: Saturday, June 23, 2 – 3:30 p.m. – This fun event is for parents and kids, teens and grandparents, and people of all shapes and sizes. We will have a fun event for the whole family that will involve scavenging around the church for different items. Snacks will be eaten. Prizes will be won.
Movie Night: Friday, June 29, 6:30 p.m. – Come watch “Peter Rabbit” with your NBCC family. Don’t worry about the heat! Don’t worry about it being dark enough at 6:30 p.m.! This movie will be shown indoors in the Family Life Center (FLC). This is a new feature adaption of Beatrix Potter’s classic tale of a rebellious rabbit trying to sneak into a farmer’s vegetable garden. This will be a fun night for all!
All Church Breakfast & Work Day – Saturday, June 9
The second Saturday of the month is the “All Church Breakfast and Workday.”
There will not be a Breakfast/Workday in May due to the “Walk for Life”, so the next workday is Saturday, June 9 when men, women, husbands, fathers, kids, and grandkids of all shapes and sizes…are invited to join us at 8 a.m. for breakfast. At 8:30 a.m. we will form groups and get projects done until around 10:30 a.m. Some of the projects are at the church and some in the community. Colossians 3:23-24 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
- Please make the All Church Breakfast and Workday a normal part of your monthly routine!
- Please encourage the able-bodied folks in your family to get up and come!
- Please bring your sons and daughters and instill the discipline of service in them!
- Please prayerfully give God three hours once a month in physical labor for Him!
