Safe Sitter Classes

Staying safe is not only in the name, it’s the foundation of the curriculum.  This workshop is designed to prepare students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they’re home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting.  Students learn how to prevent unsafe situations and what to do when faced with dangers such as power failures or weather emergencies.  The instructor-led class is filled with fun games and role-playing exercises.  Students even get to use manikins to practice rescue skills like choking rescue and CPR.

Classes are offered at Nations Ford Community Church on the following dates from 9am-4pm:

July 14, 2018
October 6, 2018

Registration fee is $20.00.  To Register, CLICK HERE

Baptist Children’s Homes Annual Offering

Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina (BCH) brings hope and healing to children and families in crisis. For more than 130 years,  the nonprofit has offered caring homes to countless boys and girls who come from circumstances ranging from family dysfunctionto situations of abuse, neglect and abandonment.

The organization provides a myriad of services including children’s residential care, family care for single mothers and their children, homes for developmentally disabled adults, weekday education, and a resource-based program for aging adults.

BCH and its highly-trained staff serve all 100 counties with locations in 21 North Carolina communities plus an orphanage in Guatemala.

“For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.” // Luke 19:10

In 2016, 147 decision were made for Christ! Your prayers and support through the ANNUAL OFFERING changes children’s lives! Because of your participation in the offering, boys and girls lost in a world of abuse, neglect and dysfunction are resscued and given a compassionate refuge at Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina.

Most of all, North Carolina children are introduced to the life-changing love of Jesus. 80% of Baptist Children’s Homes’ residents come to us unchurched and unreached for Christ. 

Your gift brings hope to children and families.

Pray for Me Campaign

Would your church commit to intergenerational prayer?

How can we connect more adults with more young people more naturally than ever before?

The Pray for Me Campaign was born out of this question. We believe every young person needs a team of Prayer Champions strategically praying for them. The Pray for Me Campaign creates a vast web of intergenerational relationships for young people and equips adult believers to pass on a sustainable faith to the next generation.
