New Beginnings' Newsletter

Your place for a fresh start!

August 2022

Welcome

Welcome to the August edition of the NBC Newsletter. Can you believe it is already August? It seems like yesterday we were ringing in the New Year, and here we are, already 8 months into 2022. The word August has several meanings. August represents strength and protection, but in Latin the word means, consecrated. What an amazing word for this month and especially this year. Consecrated means, "declared to be or represent the body and blood of Jesus Christ." As a Christian, you are a representative, an ambassador of Jesus Christ, wherever you go. Whether you are a stay-at-home mom, a teacher, a lawyer, in sales, work in the business field or medical profession, no matter what you do or where you go, you have the opportunity to represent Jesus Christ. You have the awesome responsibility of being salt and light, the hands and feet of Jesus, to the world around you. The Lord has special plans for you today and each day of this month, so make it count and leave the mark of Jesus Christ everywhere you go! We pray you are blessed and encouraged, and we hope to see you on Sundays for 8:30am or 10am at 29 Park Place Dr. See you soon!

Get to Work: Serve List

EACH ONE, HELP ONE

To be a true disciple we must live a life of love and be willing to serve others. Not only should we serve/volunteer within our church, but we must step outside the walls of the church and enter the “mission field”: the community and world around us.


Mark 10:45 “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” 1Peter 4:10 “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” Matthew 25:40 The King will reply, “Truly I tell you whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Romans 15:1-2, Matthew 5:16, Hebrews 6:10, Philippians 4:9, Isaiah 1:17, Acts 13:47


There are many opportunities both locally, nationally, and internationally for us to serve others and advance the kingdom. You can act as a representative of Jesus Christ on behalf of New Beginnings Church to any of the following local ministries/charities:

The Vision and Purpose of NBC


Vision

The vision of New Beginnings is to reach the Northshore community with the life giving message of Jesus Christ, and to teach those we reach to become true disciples, ultimately reproducing themselves. We say it like this....reach and teach we don't just want them to know, but to grow.


Purpose

The purpose of New Beginnings is to be a life giving beacon of hope, a sanctuary for the hopeless, and a haven for the downtrodden. As Jesus Himself said, "It's not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick". New Beginnings is a place for a fresh start.
