I LOVE NB

Jesus says that the world will know us by our love (John 13:35). Our hearbeat should be for others. FBCNB should be known for our love. To help communicate this drive, we are excited to dub our local missions ministry "I Love NB." We "Love NB" because God first loved us, and we are excited to lead people to Jesus. What better way to lead people to Jesus than by serving them with love? We desire to be "salt and light" to our neighbors, coworkers, friends, and family. We "Love NB" by providing school supplies, praying for First Responders, delivering Thanksgiving baskets, and witnessing to our neighbors. Please join us as we commit to "Love NB."
 

 

Operation Christmas Child



Donate Items Through September 2019
We are collecting items in the foyer all through the month of September in preparation for our Packing Party.

Packing Party October 20, 2019
Make plans now to join us Sunday, October 20th, from 5:00-7:00pm in the Gym to pack items into the shoeboxes and prepare them for shipping. Click here for a list of item suggestions based on age and gender of the children recieving the gifts.

What is Operation Christmas Child?
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samartan's Purse, and international relief organization, whose mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Samaritan's Purse ships these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S. Click here to learn more about Operation Christmas Child.


 

Family Promise


Family Promise helps homeless families regain independence by providing transportation, job training, life skills classes, a day center, and more while they work to get back on their feet. FBCNB and other local churches take turns hosting the families for one week four times a year, providing meals, fellowship, and a place to sleep.

We have hosted Family Promise guests several times this year. 2020 dates will be posted here once determined. For more info, please contact Coordinator Jessica Melott at jessica_melott@hotmail.com or 210-705-3800.
