Faith Promise 2023-2024

“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. 2024 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 2024 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, 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 McMurphy.

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.

Supported missions for November 1, 2023 - October 31, 2024 are: Caribbean Christian Construction, Deaf Missions, Gigi’s Playhouse, Johnson University, Lake Aurora Christian Camp, New Life Solutions (A Woman’s Place), Mission Trip fund, and Postage/Mailings.

Mission of the Month - New Life Solutions

350,000!  That’s how many women, men, children, and teens New Life Solutions has impacted in their first 35 years. That’s only the beginning. You can help them multiply their efforts. Your commitment to New Life Solutions doesn’t stop at saving the lives of unborn babies. When you stand with them, you also stand for pro-motherhood, pro-fatherhood, pro-marriage, and pro-gospel. Their mission is to protect the unborn, share the gospel, and transform the community—one life at a time. Walk For Life is an annual spring fundraiser that directly benefits New Life Solutions’ family of ministries. The main walk location is the St. Petersburg site at North Shore Park, but churches are welcome to host their own! There are several physical walk site locations to choose from (please note church locations may occur on a different date). The Walk for Life 2024 will take place on Saturday, May 4. Sign up today to start raising funds to support the mission of New Life Solutions to protect the unborn, share the Gospel, and transform our communities – one life at a time. Click here for more information on how to become a fundraiser, or email Donor Engagement Manager, Moriah Grubbs. You can also find out more at the table in the Foyer, manned by Angie Adkins, who will be walking on May 4th. The table will be available throughout the month of April until the Walk.

NBCC'S Food Pantry

Food Pantry is open on Tuesday mornings and is accessed through the door across from the "boat".

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.
