Women’s Resource Center Banquet

Tuesday, September 15, 6:30-8:30 PM, Quality Inn
Every day, in every community across the country, there are women and men dealing with unplanned pregnancies. Most people feel there is nothing they can do. But we can help. God had called us to be Every Day Heroes that will listen, give hope to the hopeless, and give selflessly of our own lives for the good of others. Join the Women’s Resource Center and keynote speaker Dr. Marc Newman, founder and president of Speakers for Life, at the 16th Annual Fundraising Banquet on Tuesday, September 15. Together we will be inspired to be Every Day Heroes who help the helpless and those who are suffering. For more information call the Women’s Resource Center at 308-534-1440.

Third Gathering Relaunch

September 6, 6-7:15 PM, NPBC
Our 3rd Gathering is relaunching just two weeks from today! Remember that the format is the same as Sunday morning (same sermon and music) – this venue mirrors our morning gatherings.

We’ll be meeting at 6 PM each Sunday night during the school year, which makes this gathering a great opportunity for shift workers and for people who find themselves out of town on a Sunday morning. And we’re thrilled that people have stepped up to staff a full children’s ministry offering for our families! If you have questions our would like more information, please contact Liza or Amy in our office.

Engage: Make a Difference

Sunday, August 30, 6:30-8:30 PM, NPBC
Ever feel like you’re just spinning your wheels? Ever wonder what will come of all your hard work? What if you could identify one step to take, and be confident that it will make a lasting difference? Join us at Make a Difference to be encouraged and equipped to engage our mission of leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ!

Our time together will be guided by the questions, “How can I know that what I’m doing will have a lasting spiritual impact? How can I really make a difference?” We’ll start with an inspiring message about the value and power of the gospel, followed by workshops where we’ll get extremely practical, actually trying out possible next steps that each of us can take to make a difference – right where God has us, right now. Get more details and sign up to join us – visit or pick up the flyer from the information center.

Update on Family Fish Fry

Due to scheduling conflicts, we are postponing the Family Fish Fry that was planned for August 9. We’re not quite sure of all the details yet, because we’re also working to make it an even better event for the whole family. Stay tuned!

Children’s Ministry Tour & Info Session

Sunday, August 9 or Sunday, August 16, 11 AM, Family Matters
100 years from now the only thing that will matter is someone’s relationship with Jesus Christ. That’s why we do what we do in Children’s Ministry. Each week dozens of volunteers make potentially lasting spiritual investments as they partner with parents in leading kids into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Some work directly with kids, and others invest their time and talents behind the scenes to make what happens on Sundays possible. Come find out where you might fit by participating in the Children’s Ministry Orientation & Tour. You could make a difference in someone’s eternity!

Start Here! Parents Join 252!

Sunday, August 2, 11 AM, 252
“Mommy, why did Jesus die on a cross?” “Daddy, how do Christians get to heaven?” Kids have a way of asking important faith questions in ways that make us stare blankly ahead, wishing the other parent was there instead of us. We understand the answer to the question but struggle to explain it to our kids in a way that really communicates truth in a way they understand. Parents, join your kids in 252 at 11:00 on August 2. You’ll leave with an understanding of how to talk with your child about the gospel. We’ll also talk about the next step of baptism and how we want to partner with you at these key spiritual milestones. START HERE – leading kids into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
