Missions and Ministries
“…to reach out in word and deed with faith, joy and compassion…”
A Mission Tub is setup from time to time in the fellowship area when we are collecting items related to our various “donation” drives. The objective is to help less fortunate people locally and around the world. This usually involves the collection and delivery of food goods, clothing, blankets, toys, or items related to health and hygiene.
We also provide support to the community in many other ways:
NBMC Health Ministry partners with the minister and serves as a bridge between medicine and the church by providing holistic spiritual care to the congregation. The ministry, led by a registered nurse and health care advisory committee works to promote the health and healing of the church and surrounding community.
