Faith Promise 2022-2023
“Around the World and Across the Street”
As NBCC continues to grow both in number and in Spirit, so does the need for Christian believers to give of their time, and use their God given talents and resources to aid others in need. NBCC Missions would like to thank you for your continued support and faithfulness in your Faith Promise giving. 2023 Faith Promise 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.
This is not an “out-front visible” ministry, but missions is the a bed rock foundation of any church, that touches every part of the church and countless live around the world. Please! The need is real, and the Call is urgent. Contact Dale Hammond at 813.727.2888, email@example.com or call the church. Thank you again. we (the Committee) are looking forward to sharing God’s blessing.
The Outreach 360 has need of a bilingual translator to help with Spanish speaking people using the service. Please contact Dale, Steve Lundon, or Bonnie Carico.
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.
Annual Faith Promise Renewal:
The Faith Promise year runs from November to October. Every year the New Beginnings' family renews their giving commitment with God for the next Faith Promise year. Our Missions Team is planning special activities throughout October to prepare us for this year’s Faith Promise. Faith Promise weekend is November 5 - 6, 2022. Events planned for this year are:
Throughout the month of September NBCC Missions is taking all that spare change off of your hands. This will be used to help lower the current 2021-2022 Faith Promise deficit.
Saturday, October 1 - Bring your family to our movie night. The movie Woodlawn will be shown at 4 p.m. This movie is about a gifted high school football player who must learn to embrace his talent and his faith as he battles racial tensions on and off the field.
Saturday, November 5 - Join us for a night with the Groves Family at 6 p.m. to kick off our Faith Promise weekend. A love offering will be taken this night to help lower the current 2021-2022 Faith Promise deficit.

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.
