Greetings in the grace and mercy of the Lord.  The Psalmist says in Psalm 145 “I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever.  Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever.  Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.”  I want to encourage you to take time everyday, if you are not already, to express thanks to the Lord for His goodness.  We, as children of God, are among the most blessed people in the whole world, and in the business of life sometimes we forget just how blessed we are.  Great is our Lord!


Thanks to everyone for your prayers and encouragement for the recent mission trip some of our church members could be part of.  It was a blessing to see how God used many in our church family to meet several needs in Macon, Georgia this past month. We look forward to not only seeing how God uses and blesses those seeds sown in Macon, but also how He will lead us to carry out what we learned in Macon here in our own community. 


July is going to be another month filled with opportunities to serve and be blessed by our Lord at NTBC:


  • Sunday night July 1st we will have a family night at NTBC.  We will meet in the fellowship hall at 5:00pm for a meal together and then, weather permitting, come over across the road for a time of fellowship and outdoor games.  There will be corn hole, dominos, cards, and several other games for all to enjoy. 


  • On Monday night, July 9th, our NTBC choir has been invited to sing at a revival service at Dora First Baptist where Bro. Ken Mostella is the pastor.  Bro. Ken has invited me to speak this night.  The revival service begins at 7:00pm.


  • Beginning Sunday night July 15th is Vacation Bible School at NTBC.  This is one of, if not our biggest outreach opportunity during the summer.  There are several who have volunteered their time and energy to serve during this special time and I want to say thank you in advance for your sacrifice.  Also, I ask that you be in prayer for God to speak to these young hearts as we share the greatest story of all with them, the gospel of Jesus Christ.   Thanks to Melissa Greathouse for all her hard work in getting us ready for this great week together.  If you have questions about where you can serve, please contact Melissa soon. 


These are just some of the highlights at NTBC this month.  There are several great ways to plug in, and our prayer is that you find where God wants you to serve.  I also want to take this opportunity to remind you of a great blessing at NTBC and that is Sunday School.  God has blessed us with some great teachers, and I encourage you to take advantage of this great resource. 


May God richly bless you all,

Bro. J.J.
