CBFNC Youth Beach Retreat
September 20–22, 2019  |     Fort Caswell
Be Still . . .
Young people are in such a rush with packed schedules,
too little sleep, and societal expectations that
success means always being on the go. When do they
experience the spiritual discipline of "rest"? 
Youth grades 7-12* are invited to explore and experience the spiritual discipline of "rest" at this year's Youth Beach Retreat! We will gather at Fort Caswell where Rhody Mastin and Jenny Lee will lead us in worship and fun. Please be sure to register yourself (group leader), all youth participants, and chaperones. Learn more here !
* Sixth graders are welcome if that is how the church categorizes its youth group.
Jenny Lee
Meet our worship leaders
for the week!

Our preacher for the week will be Jenny Lee, director of youth and Christian education at First Presbyterian Church of Sanford. Our musician will be Rhody Mastin, children's pastor at Emmaus Way Church in Durham.

40 Days of Prayer: The Angela Project
CBF along with Simmons College of Kentucky is commemorating the 400th Anniversary of Slavery in America through an event entitled, "The Angela Project - 40 Days of Prayer for the Liberation of American Descendants of Slavery from July 12 - August 20, 2019."
You and your congregations are invited to join the Angela Project in 40 days of prayer for the liberation of American descendants of slavery. A guidebook is available which includes facts, narration, and prayer declarations for each day. The 40 days are an opportunity to have a guided time of reflection on where we have been and to project a new course for race relations in America. More information is  here .

If you are interested in promoting this event with your seminary, small group, or congregation, ALL resources for purchase and registration can be found here . This site includes six Sunday school lessons which can be downloaded for FREE. If you are unable to schedule your community for the July 12–August 20- 40 Days of Prayer (due to the short notice), please consider planning a six-week small group session at a later date. You may utilize the free Sunday school resource.

On the same site, all persons engaged in the Prayer event are asked to register with Simmons College of Kentucky as we join together in prayer.  Groups are also encouraged to watch a live streaming of a final worship event on Tuesday, August 20 at 12:00 p.m..  The streaming link can be found on the same site.

Should you choose to hold your own worship event, the worship details are pre-published in pamphlet form and available for purchase and use.  For more information on The Angela Project, please view this video .  CBF's collaboration with The Angela Project is highlighted in this video.

CBFNC is here for students!
CBFNC has 10 campus ministry groups on state campuses in NC and we partner with several other private college campuses who have groups as well. We would love to connect with students that you know are coming to these campuses so that we can reach out to them before they even get there.

Trust is an integral part of students connecting with people on campus. Helping them connect with people that you know and trust is very important as they navigate these new waters.
