Are you new to our church? Maybe you’ve been coming for a while but haven’t really gotten involved. Here are the top six ways to get plugged in at North Shore Community Baptist Church!
- Stop by the Welcome Center
As soon as you walk in the door of our building you can’t miss our Welcome Center. Every Sunday, friendly faces are standing behind the desk to greet you and tell you more about our church. At the Welcome Center you can find information about our church’s programs, chat with someone who loves NSCBC, and fill out a connect card.
- Come to a Connect event
Our Connect Team wants everyone who walks in our doors to feel welcomed and included. Connect I is a great way to meet some of our church staff and learn more about who we are and our vision for the future. It’s an informal gathering where Pastor Bobby shares a bit and there is time for you to ask whatever questions you may have. We have two Connect I events coming up:
- Sunday, September 18, 2016: stay after the second service for lunch
- Tuesday, October 4, 2016: join us at someone’s home for dessert at 7:30pm
After Connect I is Connect II! If you are ready to learn more about becoming a member of our church, Connect II goes into more detail about our identity, calling, and structure. The next Connect II is October 16!
- Join a Small Group
Through small groups, you can grow in knowledge and application of the Gospel within the context of community. This is probably the best way to – all in one place – make friends, dive deeper into Scripture, be encouraged and challenged in your faith, have fun, and live on mission with others. Fill out this form to get connected to a group.
- Eat with us
We have opportunities for fellowship over food between services every Sunday, at the Evening Service (1st & 3rd Sundays at 5pm), and at Awana (bi-monthly on Thursdays at 5:15pm). Many of our other gatherings also include food (after all, we are a Baptist church)!
- Serve somewhere
Friendships can be developed simply by serving alongside others. Join the parking team. Become a smiling usher. Care for homeless families at Family Promise. There are countless other ways to volunteer at NSCBC. In all these you can worship God, help others, and build relationships. We especially encourage you to find an area to serve that you are passionate about. Contact me (Melissa Lowther) at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about opportunities.
- Pray with others
Praying with others can both encourage them and lift you up. You could simply pray with the person next to you after the Sunday service about something in the sermon that challenged you; join in a church-wide prayer guide or gathering; or become a member of the prayer team to pray for others on Sunday mornings. Pray that God would help you build relationships at NSCBC.
