Stix and Stones is…

From the Creators of The Lost Shepherd, the highly anticipated New Easter Production is coming in March 2018! Not only will you see the Death, Burial and Resurrection of our savior, Jesus Christ, but you will see the stories of his beloved Apostles that He commissioned to carry on His Gospel work.  This inspirational musical drama entitled “Stix and Stones” is a spectacular live theatre production which begins where The Lost Shepherd story ends with the chronicles of the Early Church.  You will rejoice with each victory gained and feel the pain of the ultimate price paid by those that stood and preached the gospel that we continue to cherish today.  As we are all aware, there are precious thousands each year that continue to pay the ultimate price for this glorious message.  It is our desire to honor their sacrifice, as small as it may see, by shining a light on what many have endured.

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:

April 7, 2018
July 14, 2018
October 6, 2018

Registration fee is $20.00.  To Register, CLICK HERE

Nations Ford: One Great Day of Baptism

A Message From Nations Ford Community Church:

Greetings in the name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Nations Ford Community Church has embraced the vision of Christ–to see the body of Christ become one and demonstrate a collective unity within our city. Therefore, we would like to extend an invitation to you to partner with us and participate in our 2nd Annual “One Great Day of Baptism”, which will be held on Sunday May 6, 2018. We believe baptism follows the example of Jesus himself, as an individual makes the decision to identify with his death, burial and resurrection. We extend this invitation to join us because we believe that baptism across our city on the same day can be a demonstration of this unity that Jesus prayed for. 

There are two ways your congregation can participate in this event. First, if you are a church without a baptismal pool, we invite you and your congregants to worship with us on this day. Those requesting to be baptized can do so at the Nations Ford campus by your Pastor or designated representative. Secondly, if you would simply like to show support for this event we would ask for you to hold baptisms at your church on this day and record or live stream your services as a show of unity. 

Last year’s One Great Day of Baptism resulted in over 70 individuals baptized across four campus sites. We are expecting even greater numbers this year as more churches join together on this day. 

For further details on how you and your church and participate on this great day, please contact Tyrone Nelson at tnelson@nationsford.org or 704.522.6480.

We look forward to the Body of Christ coming together as one.

 


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.
