Flooding in South Carolina
Historic, record flooding in South Carolina affected thousands of homes between Columbia and the coast in early October.  NCBM Disaster Relief setup first in Brunswick County, NC to assist with cleanout of flooded homes.  Then, we were invited by SC Baptists to setup first in Horry County and then later in Florence County.  At this time we have 3 sites in operation: Longs, Johnsonville, and Socastee. To date, over 113 jobs have been completed, 10,000+ meals prepared and 1,642 volunteer days served in this response.  However, the work is not complete.  Flood waters in some areas are just starting to recede.  We plan on being involved for the long haul.  Please develop a team and sign up at www.baptistsonmission.org/carolinaflooding2015.


Baptist Builders/ River of Life
Calabash, NC: This week the sheetrock is almost finished and we will be moving to the next phase of completion.  We need additional volunteers to help with the last portion of this new church building!  Please contact Greg Riggs to offer assistance: 919.730.0920.


Least of These Projects
Through Least of These Projects you, your church, or your association can make an eternal impact in the lives of people in some of the most desperate situations in the world.  NCBM works with local churches to drill wells in India; sponsor church planters in Haiti, Africa, and Armenia; rescue abandoned infants in South Africa; build homes in Kenya that will host Bible studies; and meet many other physical needs as an avenue to penetrate the spiritual darkness.  Learn more or make a donation at baptistsonmission.org/Donate


Red Springs and Shelby Mission Camps
Teams serving at Red Springs and Shelby Mission Camps have the opportunity to make an impact on people's lives. The Mission Camp Leadership will identify a project based on the current need and the skills of your team. While the service provided by teams is important in and of itself, the opportunity to build relationships, pray for, and minister to the community is the real purpose of the Mission Camps. For more information on the Red Springs Mission Camp go to http://baptistsonmission.org/camps/red-springs-mission-camp for more information on the Shelby Mission Camp go to http://baptistsonmission.org/camps/shelby-mission-camp


Pennsylvania Needs BYBC and Outreach Teams
Several church planters in Pennsylvania have asked for NC Churches to assist them in conducting Backyard Bible Clubs, Sports Clinics, and other outreach for the summer of 2016.  There are also some construction needs. Mission teams play a strategic part in helping a church planter establish a Gospel presence in the community they are working in. Please pray about responding to these urgent needs! For more information, contact Mark Abernathy at 919-459-5607 or mabernathy@ncbaptist.org,  or go to our website at:  http://baptistsonmission.org/Missions/United-States/Pennsylvania


Vermont Mission Teams Needed!
Mission Teams are needed to help Vermont congregations with Vacation Bible School, Backyard Bible Clubs, Sports Clinics, and other outreach for the summer of 2016.  There are also several construction needs. Vermont is highly unreached with the Gospel, but God is at work here. We need volunteer teams to respond! Please pray about responding to these urgent needs! For more information, contact Mark Abernathy at 919-459-5607 or mabernathy@ncbaptist.org,  or go to our website at: http://baptistsonmission.org/Missions/United-States/Vermont  


Deep Impact
Deep Impact Missions 2016 is shaping up to be the most fantastic mission weeks for youth ever! The theme is You Are The ONE. The theme verse for the summer youth weeks is Hebrews 13:20-21. During the day youth will participate in mission projects and in the evenings will worship together with music and the spoken word. At other times recreation opportunities will be available. For more information go to our website at http://baptistsonmission.org/camps/deep-impact. You can also contact Tom Beam at tbeam@ncbaptist.org or 1.800.395.5102, ext. 5626. We look forward to seeing your youth group at one of our 11 Deep Impact camps during the summer of 2016.


NEW FOR 2016 is DI Kids
DI Kids are opportunities for children and their parents and leaders to participate in missions, much like DI for youth. Weekend DI Kids camps for 2016 are May 13-15, 2016 at the Red Springs Mission Camp and September 23-25, 2016 at the Shelby Missions Camp. These weekend camps are for children who are currently in 1st-5th grade and their leaders/parents. Week long DI Kids for summer 2016 are July 11-15 at the Shelby Missions Camp and July 18-22 at the Red Springs Missions Camp. The week long camps are for children who have completed 4th-5th grade and their leaders/parents. For more information please contact Dollie Noa at dikidsnc@ncbaptist.org. We look forward to seeing your children’s group at one of our 4 DI Kids camps in 2016.
