Thank God for giving you another day! 

 

Upcoming events:  

 

· The National Day of Prayer is Thursday May 6, 2021.

 

· NC Baptist Hospital’s Mother’s Day Offering is May 2021 (Because most churches were not meeting last spring, the typical offering of         approximately $400,000 dropped dramatically to just $40,000. Plus, with so many unemployed, uninsured, and underinsured, more patients than ever need support.)

 

Churches WMU Dues - due @ 1/1/21.  $2.00 per member. Thank you to the churches that have paid their 2020/2021 dues.  If you have not, please remit to:
