Join us for Christmas for the Hungry—A production that explores a group of children’s journey to understanding spiritual hunger as they become aware of the local and worldwide burden of actual hunger. Written, produced and performed by NEBC members, Christmas for the Hungry reminds us that we are all called to serve others in meeting their needs, and in doing so, point to Jesus as the only one who can lift our burdens and sustain us in ways nothing else can. This time will give the audience a chance to hit the pause button on the chaotic cycle of the holidays, and to remember that Jesus came for every one of us.
Christmas for the Hungry is December 15 and 16, 5:30 p.m. each night at NEBC. We will take a donation, and funds will be used to purchase food for food-insecure families at Eisenhower Elementary School to use during Winter Break. We expect a big turnout, and to ensure that we accommodate all guests, please RSVP your family and expected guests at nebaptist.com/christmas-play.
November 4 was our third First Fruits Sunday—a time to celebrate Onward and commit to continued growth of God’s kingdom. Onward is an NEBC capital campaign dedicated to raising funds for an expanded campus. So far in November, we’ve had 91 families contribute to Onward for this year’s First Fruits emphasis! For more information on Onward, click here.
Christmas carols are a staple of the season. They are a melodious background to traditions, family gatherings and sweet memories. But let’s stop to ponder the message of salvation and redemption many carols illustrate. Join us Sundays in December for The Melody of Christmas sermon series as we lift a joyful noise of worship and then explore the message of God’s promise, Christ’s example, our eternal value and the perfect joy His plan brings to every one of us.
And we know this is a busy season! If you are traveling and have to miss a service, listen to the message here.
EVERY CHURCH. EVERY NATION.
It’s more than a catch phrase. It’s at the core of what the International Mission Board does. Every church—and every church member—has a critical role to play in bringing the gospel to the world. NEBC’s participation in the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is a key part of that. Because of our participation in the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, IMB missionaries can take the gospel to unreached peoples around the world. Every dollar you give makes a difference, because 100% of the money collected goes to the work of reaching every nation.
If you are led to give, you can do so in a giving envelope during Sunday service, or give online here.
