In-Kind and Cash Donations are Needed for Disaster Relief Efforts
Thank you for your willingness to donate items to those affected by the recent disaster. Our most pressing need at this time is monetary donations.
You can make a donation by mailing a check to:
NCBM, PO Box 1107, Cary, NC 27512 Memo line: Disaster Relief Hurricane Florence. You can also give online at www.baptistsonmission.org/Hurricane-Florence
As a reminder, contributing to the North Carolina Missions Offering, http://www.ncmissionsoffering.org supports all NCBM ministries.
Cash donations are the best form of help for disaster relief efforts. If, however, you would like to donate other items, please follow the list below and do not deviate from the list as these items are specific requests from the areas affected.
- Canned food
- Hygiene items
- Baby products (diapers, formula)
- Cleaning supplies
They are also accepting building supplies. However, if donating building supplies, please call our CRBA office first to make arrangements
We are NOT accepting CLOTHING.
Please feel free to bring your donations to our CRBA office in Morganton and we will make sure they get to the Red Springs Missions Camp in Red Springs, NC for distribution.
We are happy to be partnering with pastor Pandu Maddala of Victory Baptist Association as he works with pastors in India to reach communities for Jesus. Most pastors in India pastor more than one church and they walk wherever they go. They are in need of 100 bicycles to help 100 pastors take the Word of God from village to village. The Catawba River Association is working to meet this need through the gifts of churches and individuals. If you, your Church, or Sunday School class would like to donate a bike (pedals for pastors) please send a check for $80 to CRBA and put on the memo line “Pedals for Pastors”. Every dollar collected will be sent to India and will be used to purchase bicycles. Please send all donations to 1812 US 70 E., Morganton, NC.
We will be collecting coats this year to be distributed to those in need in New York City. Please bring new or gently used coats (no holes, tears or stains) to our CRBA office in Morganton. We will collect coats during the months of September and October and will deliver them to a drop off location in North Carolina (Fruitland Baptist Bible College) who will then deliver (and distribute) them in New York. Again, if you bring used coats please make sure they are in great shape.
Ministry Obstacles: Access to these people is quite difficult. Many are nomadic, and Sudan is harsh.
Outreach Ideas: Much prayer is needed for the Kababish Muslims. Pray the Lord will give them hearts to hear the good news of Jesus as spiritual things are spiritually discerned or understood.
Pray for the followers of Christ: There are only a few believers in Jesus among the Kababish people. Pray for them as they live in a difficult environment, both physically and spiritually. Pray their faith will not only be protected but grow. Pray they will be zealous to learn about Christ and his teachings, and follow him faithfully.
Pray for the entire people group: Pray for Kababish families to be drawn to Jesus and to the Bible to find out more about this man, Jesus. Pray for peace in Sudan, and for the Kababish to be able to care for their families. Pray for adequate water for themselves and their livestock, and for sufficient food.
1. Singles Dream Team: About one-third of adults in your town are single. Form a top-notch team to pray and plan multiple small groups, events and ministries for singles. Kick off with a single adult retreat.
2. Stock the Pantry: Ask members to donate non-perishables to your church’s food pantry or a local food bank.
3. Pumpkinpalooza: Display an invitation banner and gobs of pumpkins outside. Kids under 12 pick a pumpkin, decorate it and take it home (free of charge). Take family photos and invite them to church Sunday where they can pick them up.
4. Senior Adult Revival: Plan a weeklong daytime evangelistic revival for senior adults. Serve lunch and encourage members to bring friends who may not know Christ.
5. Nearly-Wed Seminar: Invite engaged couples to an 8-week seminar before church or during the week. Each session is a topical Bible study about marriage, with homework and handouts. At completion, couples get a certificate and promote to newlywed class.
