Below are some of the prominent mission opportunities and ministries at FBCNB. This is not an exhaustive list, so if God has put something on your heart to seek or to start, please contact us at FirstBaptist@fbcnb.org or 830-625-9124.
I LOVE NB
Jesus says that the world will know us by our love (John 13:35). Our hearbeat should be for others. FBCNB should be known for our love. To help communicate this drive, we are excited to dub our local missions ministry "I Love NB." We "Love NB" because God first loved us, and we are excited to lead people to Jesus. What better way to lead people to Jesus than by serving them with love? We desire to be "salt and light" to our neighbors, coworkers, friends, and family. We "Love NB" by providing school supplies, praying for First Responders, delivering Thanksgiving baskets, and witnessing to our neighbors. Please join us as we commit to "Love NB."
THIRD SUNDAY OUTREACHES
April 30 (Fifth Sunday because Easter falls on Third Sunday)
We will meet at the church to have a time of follow-up with the visitors of the Easter service. Some teams can make home visits, some can stay and pray for those going out, and others can write cards to them. Childcare will be provided for those who want to help with visitation.
Mission Trip Info Meeting
Join us Sunday, March 26 or April 2, for information about two trips coming up: Ecuador in July 2017 and Wales in June 2018. The same information will be shared at both meetings.
12:15pm in Rushing Hall
Family Promise helps homeless families regain independence by providing transportation, job training, life skills classes, a day center, and more while they work to get back on their feet. FBCNB and other local churches take turns hosting the families for one week four times a year, providing meals, fellowship, and a place to sleep.

TONIGHT, WEDNESDAY 3/29
DUE TO BUS ACCIDENT
At approximately 2 pm this afternoon, a group of our senior adults were returning home from a 3-day retreat at Alto Frio Baptist Encampment when their vehicle was involved in a head-on collision.
We have heard that there have been fatalities, but we have not received any official details from the local authorities.
We are ministering to family members to help them deal with this tragedy. Counselors will be on hand at the church tomorrow.
If you're a Christian, you can pray for those who lost their loved ones and for the church family.
