We are excited about this year’s golf tournament to support our upcoming Toy Store Ministry, blessing children, and families in Burke County. To help us raise funds, we are asking businesses and our CRBA churches to “Sponsor A Hole.” There are different levels of support that allow churches and businesses of all sizes the ability to participate.
To learn more and to become a hole sponsor, please call our office or click HERE.
Coats for the City shares the love of Jesus by providing warm coats and the gospel to residents of New York City each December. N.C. Baptists have partnered with the Metropolitan New York Baptist Association (MNYBA) in this effort for eight years. Working with churches across New York City, we desire to distribute coats along with a Bible or Jesus film in the language of every recipient.
What kind of coats do we need?
- New or gently used heavy coats that can withstand a New York City winter.
- Lighter-weight coats used for layering.
- No holes, tears, or stains.
- Zippers should work.
Please call (828) 437-0137 to schedule a drop-off time.
Each September, we ask that churches across NC prayerfully consider participating in the 19 ministries of Baptists on Mission through the NC Missions Offering (NCMO). This offering provides the entire regular budget for Baptists on Mission, about half of the church planting budget for NC, and returns 10% of the offering to local Associations to use as God leads. Some churches think that their Cooperative Program (CP) gifts provide the funding for Baptists on Mission’s ministries like Disaster Relief and Rebuild, but CP funds do not provide the budget for Baptists on Mission. Please encourage your church to promote the NCMO and offer relief for today and hope for tomorrow.
The time to begin promoting the NC Missions Offering is now! HERE is a link to a video that helps tell the story of how medical missions through Baptists on Mission change lives around the world.
We are excited to announce we will be hosting Mission Fair 2022 at this year’s Fall Meeting/Worship Celebration at Mount Home on October 23rd. At Mission Fair 2022, we will have missionaries (local, state, national, and IMB), as well as mission partners present to bless and help our churches. Additionally, we are excited to provide an opportunity for each of our CRBA churches to have a table where they can exhibit their ministries and mission involvement to brag about what Jesus is doing in and through our churches. If your church would like to have a table/exhibit, please contact our CRBA office to RSVP. In addition to all the helpful exhibits, desserts will be served.
Christmas in August is approaching, and we are excited about the opportunity to serve our community through our annual Toy Store ministry again this year. This is when our churches work together to collect new toys to help families in Burke County. We have the collection boxes ready to be picked up at our CRBA office for any church or business willing to participate. To claim your box, please come by our office (1812 US 70 E., Morganton) or give us a call at 828-437-0137. Your help is greatly appreciated.
Steaks and Salmon for Firefighters
Since 9/11, the general public has been aware of the tremendous job that they do for us day in and day out. Show them a little kindness by providing some steaks or salmon to grill. Let them know in advance that you are coming so they can have the grill fired up. Be sure to invite them to your church and offer to provide Bibles for each firefighter.
