NBCC'S Food Pantry
Food Pantry is open on Tuesday mornings and is accessed through the front glass doors on Manhattan.
NBCC’s food pantry distributes food every Tuesday from 9 - 9:30 a.m. to those less fortunate. In these tough times, the response continues to grow. Weekly, we need to replenish the pantry; therefore, we are in continual need of canned goods and non-perishable foods. Monetary donations are also accepted to supplement the non-perishable donations.
We truly appreciate the many donations of food, money, labor, and prayers that have gone into this much-needed ministry. We realize that some of those benefiting from this ministry may abuse it in various ways. But over the years, we are thrilled to hear that the vast majority of those receiving this food are so thankful because they simply don’t have the mans to provide for themselves. Receiving this food allows them to use their money for payment of utilities, rent, gasoline, etc.
Without YOUR regular donations, this ministry would cost the church about $600 per week. In addition to the generosity of YOUR donated items and money, the church still spends another $250-$300 per week. Again, we thank YOU for your integral participation of this ministry. We feel that we are answering Jesus’ challenge to help care for the poor and homeless. YOUR continued support is very much appreciated.
Donations can be dropped off at the NBCC Office Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (except from 12 – 1 p.m.). Donations are also accepted Sunday mornings from 7:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.

NBCC Missions would like to thank you for your continued support and faithfulness in your Faith Promise giving. As of this date Missions giving is $9,400.59. Once more thank you. As 2022 is rapidly rushing by, 2023 Faith Promise is quickly approaching. NBCC Missions is in great need. What is the need? Simply said: 2 or 3 committee members!
NBCC Missions is pleased to be charged with the task of funding the Missions program. We are searching for people, first with a passion to reach out to others, and second, a desire to serve as part of one of the most important ministries at our Church.
Committee members need no experience just a desire to serve. Members meet once each month for one hour (usually after 10:30 services). Members: Discuss current and future support for Missionaries in the field, Develop promotions, bulletin boards, posters, events etc., Plan 2023 Faith Promise Rally event, speakers, and budget, and Visit locally supported missions.

The need is real, and the Call is urgent. Contact Dale Hammond at 813.727.2888, firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church.

What is Faith Promise? A Faith Promise is a giving commitment made to God based not necessarily on what you already have, but on what you believe God will provide for you to use in worldwide evangelism. Each person is challenged to give “As he has purposed in his heart” (II Corinthians 9:7).
A Faith Promise is a personal agreement with God in which you promise to trust God to faithfully provide you with the funds to regularly support the worldwide mission’s efforts of New Beginnings Christian Church. The church will keep accurate records to confirm contributions for tax purposes, but in no case will the church solicit or remind any person if a Faith Promise commitment is not kept! The Faith Promise encourages systematic giving, based upon each person’s faith and trust in God’s provisions.
