We invite you to join us during one of our many fellowship opportunities!
Pastoral Search Committee
We are tasked by NBCC’s elders to search until we find the man whom God has selected to be the pastor/shepherd of our beloved church. This is a journey. Journeys are more marathons than sprints as God often uses them to educate the sojourner and grow faith. As of Wednesday, February 20, to date, the Pastoral Search Committee has reviewed and investigated 35 completed applications; held 9 meet & greets with one more in-process; contacted 6 candidates’ references; submitted 3 candidates to the elders; attended 2 elder-lead interviews; and hosted 1 candidate’s visit. The PSC and elders are meeting this afternoon to discuss candidates, the process, and next steps. Thank you for keeping us in prayer. We are persuaded God has great things in store for us! Do you have any questions for us? Don’t hesitate to ask! Contact us at: PCS@newbeginningscctampa.org. The Pastoral Search Committee members are: Rick Atkinson, Alyse Duffy, Dale Hammond, Tom Jones, Sarah Kay-Chair., Tammy McCready, Tracey Porath, and Rick Rose. Youth members are Laura Grubbs and Nicole Perdigon.

All Church Breakfast & Work Day – Saturday, March 9
The second Saturday of the month is the “All Church Breakfast and Workday.” The next workday is Saturday, March 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!
