NCMO materials to arrive in July
    July 1 2013 by BSC

    A new approach to help churches promote the North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO), without having to order new materials, will begin this year.
     
    Churches that ordered NCMO materials in either 2012 or 2011 will receive similar orders of 2013 materials from the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSC). The materials will arrive in July.
     
    The free packets include posters, videos, bulletin inserts and other materials to help missions leaders promote the offering within their churches. Churches can easily order additional materials as needed. Also, additional NCMO materials, such as a 30-day prayer guide, can be downloaded from the NCMO website at http://www.ncbaptist.org/.

    The theme for NCMO this year is “Compelled by Christ: Proclaiming release, relief and redemption,” based on Luke 4:18. The NCMO is the BSC’s second major funding program for missions – following the Cooperative Program – with a goal this year of $2.1 million.
     
    More than half the offering will be used for the 14 ministries of North Carolina Baptist Men. These ministries include: disaster relief, medical/dental ministry, mission camps at Red Springs and Shelby, volunteer mobilization, prison ministry and much more. NCMO is the main funding source for Baptist Men.
     
    Volunteer teams were sent to Oklahoma after tornadoes destroyed towns there earlier this year. Since Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey and New York last October, N.C. Baptist men and women have prepared more than 600,000 meals and completed hundreds of recovery projects to help storm victims.
     
    NCMO also provides about a third of the budget used by the BSC’s Church Planting Team to plant new churches. In 2012 that ministry helped plant 101 new churches across the state, including many churches for a variety of ethnic groups.
     
    In 2012, new churches that receive convention support made more than 111,000 evangelistic contacts and registered 3,036 professions of faith. Total weekly worship attendance in these churches averaged 5,848.
