Kids Worship

How many ways can you send a message? There are so many unique ways! Special deliveries are the best but even better are the messages found in each package. This month, we are going to look at the most important message that was ever sent out and how we are meant to be the ones delivering it. Kids are God’s messengers that can share the stories of God’s miracles and help. Get kids involved in helping God’s message go everywhere because God delivers everyone! 
Dream Big Workshop
Sunday, May 22 
11 AM - 1 PM in Room A105 

Dream Big Workshop will give kids an opportunity to share their story through the creative outlet of a dream board! Using all kinds of arts and crafts supplies, kids and families will create boards that represent their past and their hopes for the future. Kids will decorate their boards with images of major events they've experienced, talents, and interests they have, and their big dreams for the future. Through this fun activity kids will learn to see the beauty in their own story and how to share that beauty with the world around them!
Youth Group
Wednesday at 6 PM

Jesus doesn't call us to be one of his fans. Being a Christian is not about clicking like on his Instagram. So, what does that mean? Join the discussion on Wednesday at 6 PM. Game Room opens at 5:30 PM.

Youth Group will meet this Sunday at 5 PM.

Response to Ukraine Crisis

We have watched in disbelief the pictures and videos coming from Ukraine over the past few weeks with a helpless feeling. North Carolina Baptist on Mission have dispatched a team to the region to assess how we may be the hands and feet of Jesus in this tragedy. By mobilizing resources NC BoM are partnering with a German Christian ministry to get bread to internally displaced refugees who are staying mainly in churches inside Ukraine. The cost is two dollars per person per day for a loaf of bread, sausage spread and a piece of cake. Our goal is to feed 100,000 per day. Click here to give http://baptistsonmission.org/ukrainegive.
