where love is alive 
Upcoming Opportunities

 As we prepare to head into the holiday season, I’d like to make everyone aware of an opportunity coming up at the beginning of 2014. During the months of January and February, rather than gathering for our traditional Sunday evening worship service, we will be offering a variety of Bible studies and discipleship courses that you can choose from. We’re still finalizing the details on a few of the offerings, but following are the courses we already have in place:

 Vertical Church, facilitated by Lanny Green, points to a new day where God is the seeker, and we are the ones found. In Vertical Church, God shows up, and that changes everything. If you want to experience God as you never have before and witness His hand at work, if you want to wake up to the first thought, “Thank God it’s Sunday,” if you’re ready to feel your heart beat faster as you drive to your place of worship, then devour and digest the lessons of the Vertical Church.

 The Sermon on the Mount:  Dr. Jay will be leading a series of lessons based on Jesus’ teachings from Matthew 5-7.

Effective Parenting in a Defective World:  Raising children is a tough challenge in today’s world. Peers and pop culture exert a never-ending pressure on kids. Parents often feel helpless, as every godly principle they teach their children seems to be contradicted by the corrupt principles of this defective world. But the good news is, God has a plan for effectively raising your children and you can learn from it. Packed with practical advice, this series will give struggling parents a vision for their children’s future and life-changing help for today. This series will be facilitated by Kevin & Leslie Hicks.

How to Lead Like Jesus Led: Jason Cox will be leading this leadership study for middle and high school students.

We also plan to offer a course on financial planning and stewardship as well as a few other topics that have yet to be determined. Stay tuned to upcoming announcements for further details on the classes we know we’ll have and new classes being added to the list.

 Attention married couples! On Saturday, January 11, Leslie and I will be attending the Visionary Marriage seminar at Salem Baptist Church in Dalton, Georgia. The seminar will be from 6-9 p.m. and will include dinner, dessert, and a presentation by author and pastor, Rob Rienow. There is no charge for this event and we would love to load up the van and take a ride down to Dalton. If you’re interested or have questions, please call me at 303-8429.

Leslie, Isaac, Matilda, and I would like to express how thankful we are to be part of the NCBC family. May the Lord bless each home and family during this holiday season!
