Our Challenge for 2020 is "Own Your Circle"
Our challenge comes from Elijah and the showdown on Mount Carmel. The Israelites are undecided between the god of Baal and Jehovah. Elijah, jealous for the glory of God, wants it to be known that there is only One True God and He is Jehovah. The contest is to see whether God or Baal will consume the sacrifice by sending fire from the sky. The prophets of Baal beg their god to answer but he is silent. When Elijah comes up, his prayer may be simple but his heart is filled with God being glorified by His people. God answers by sending fire down from heaven and completely consuming the sacrifice (including the stones and dust). One man's desire to see God glorified impacted a nation. The challenge is simple yet difficult. "Find a secret place, sit down, draw a circle around you, and beg God to send revival inside your circle."
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
We greatly enjoy having Parent/ Teen Sunday School; it is exciting to see teens and their parents studying God's Word together. I believe the teens especially enjoy watching their parents be involved in the Bible Study. Our next Parent/Teen Sunday School is TBA; mark your calendar and plan on joining us! The next parent & teen event is our Vision Night on Sept. 16th at 6:45m!

We all have questions, especially when it comes to our faith, walk with God,and the Bible. We encourage people to ask questions and search in the Bible for answers. When someone writes down a question, we will interview other Youth Pastors, Pastors, and ministry leaders to learn what the Bible says! We will post these answers to our facebook page.
If you would like to learn more about personal discipleship or even family discipleship, please let us know!
It's natural to desire a life of ease and comfort. In fact, we go to great lengths to avoid anything that would be difficult. This mindset has permeated nearly every part of our life, even when it comes to church. We desire a church that fits us and meets our needs! What if that isn't what God intended...what if Church wasn't about our likes or preferences. What if we gave God the choice & His choice wasn't easy. What if the Christian life wasn't meant to be easy. Join us for this 3 week Series!
NTBC Youth Ministry
Snacks are such a great way to minister to ...well...anyone. There something great about coming to youth group and being met by friendly peope and seeing a table full of snacks. If you would like to bring a snack for our teens please contact us. We ask that the snack is pre-packaged and if you are wondering what they like...pretty much anything (think salty & sweet). There is a sign up sheet that we put out every semester as well! Thank you so much for investing in our young people.
From time to time, we have an event called an "after-glow." An after-glow is simply a youth activity that is after the Sun Pm Service. We enjoy having after-glows at people's homes; this gives our teens and leaders a chance to hang out, have fun, and better know our church members. If you are willing to open up your home and provide food for a Youth event, please contact us. We would love to partner with you!
