Faith Promise 2018-2019
– “Around the World and Across the Street”
The Mission Committee normally meets on the second Sunday of the month about noon (directly following the 10:30 Service) in Room 101. The next meeting is Sunday, December 9.
Just a friendly reminder to not forget your Faith Promise pledge for this year. We have been running short the last couple of months. Our missions depend on us. Faith Promise monies are not pulled from General Funds, only those designated for Faith Promise are sent to missions.
In 2018-2019, the NBCC missions’ team has selected 6 missions that the church has had a long history with, very close ties with our church members and/or is geographically close enough for the congregation to partner with them through service opportunities. Our strategy is to leverage personal relationships to champion nearby missions in ways that are genuinely helpful to them and provide our congregation with life changing service opportunities. These six missions are: Caribbean Christian Construction, Deaf Missions, Family Ministries of Florida, Impact at USF, Lake Aurora Christian Camp, and New Life Solutions (A Woman’s Place is one of their ministries) plus an Opportunity Fund to cover special missions’ opportunities and emergencies. If you haven’t had a chance to fill out next year’s pledge forms, they will be in the Sunday bulletin on Sundays, November 11 and November 18.
To participate in any mission trip outside the United States, you must have a valid USA Passport and that passport must be valid for 6 months after the scheduled return dates. If you don’t have a passport, apply ASAP for a passport.
