New Beginnings' Newsletter

Your place for a fresh start!

August 2021


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 2021. 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!

Believe Again is a conference, created beautifully and intentionally for women, where the doubt of "once was" meets the hope of "what can be". Stephanie Henderson speaks authentically to these places of doubt, fear, and insecurity and brings a message of hope and promise through the Word of God. Through experiencing valleys within her own life, you will find your story woven within hers, and most of all, you will be able to also believe…again.

**Saturday, October 16th from 8:30am-12:30pm**

The Vision and Purpose of NBC


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.


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.
