From Your Pastor, August 2012

17th July 2012 by Administrator


Back in the spring our deacon body heard a presentation by Dr. Michael Duduit, one of our members, who is the Dean of College of Christian Studies at Anderson University.  This presentation was about a new church start that Michael and several others were preparing to launch in our area sometime in the fall.  Dr. Duduit and I had been discussing this for a long time and I thought it was the right time to ask the deacons to consider NABC being the mother (sponsor) church for this new church start.  They were overwhelmingly supportive and wanted to present it to the church for us to sponsor God’s new work in Anderson.  Sunday, July 29, 2012 we will ask our church to formally vote on sponsoring this new church now called “The Bridge Church.”  The core of The Bridge Church will join us on that Sunday. There will be a signing of a document that will symbolize our becoming their prayer partner and making the commitment to help them in any way we can.  This is not a commitment to provide financing for their church in any way. Saluda Baptist Association will also participate in this ceremony.  Pray for this special service and for our new sister church, “The Bridge Church.”

Teams are the heartbeat of NABC.  We are going to make a greater effort to work by teams this year more than ever in the past.  Our key team will be the new Church Council.  This team will be the guiding force for our church and it is made up of all the chairpersons from the major teams in the church.  All teams will be accountable to the Church Council.  The Nominating Team will be instructing all members of the teams they enlist that they will be accountable to the Church Council.  In the month of August there will be specific instructions given regarding the procedures that will be followed by all teams.  Be prepared to serve with the goal ofglorifying the Lord Jesus, reaching the lost and making disciple out of those who are saved.


God’s blessings to you all,
