NMBC Announcement

VALLEY CARE PREGNANCY CENTRE FUNDRAISER - The Valley Care Pregnancy Centre is a local Christian Mission ministering throughout the Annapolis Valley. We partner together with this home mission to share the grace and truth of Jesus with young women and men facing life and death decisions. The Valley Care Pregnancy Centre is active in ministering to needy women and men facing crisis pregnancies, struggling with parenting, needing support through adoption and those wanting healing from deep regret after an abortion.

This Pregnancy Centre offers ongoing support, counselling, material aid, love, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone who needs help. Through this home mission, lives are being saved and hearts are turning to faith in Jesus and they are being connected to the local church.

This Baby Bottle Campaign is one way we can all work together to pray, raise awareness in the community and supply practical support for these Moms, Dads and Babies in need.

It’s really simple. Just take a baby bottle home, pray for this mission and over the next few weeks put a donation of cash or cheque in the bottle and return it to church on Father's Day Sunday.

It’s a simple and effective way to make a powerful impact for the Gospel here in our own back yard.

Together, we can make a big difference. By this time next year, a baby will be born who would not have existed if it were not for your support. Thank you.

The children have been in New Minas schools for over two months, travelling each day by school bus and adjusting well in the classroom with the help of additional ESL support. Also, the three youngest have been enrolled in a soccer program for the summer months.

The parents are receiving ESL training at VCLA in Kentville four mornings a week and grandmother is receiving similar support though volunteers at home. They have received social support from the local Syrian community in addition to that of committee members.

The family members have had appointments with a family doctor and a dentist as required under the refugee program. They are enrolled in MSI.

Mohammad has passed his “written” driver’s test. In addition, he has been assigned a garden plot at the Acadia Community Farm as he has been itching to get his hands in the soil in his new country. He has a portable greenhouse set up in the house and is also preparing a small plot at their rental house for planting when the weather is suitable. Ultimately his goal is to farm in the area.

The committee members have supported the family on a regular basis, but could use additional congregational support with driving and attendance at medical appointments and children’s sports activities.

VALLEY CARE PREGNANCY CENTRE FUNDRAISER - The Valley Care Pregnancy Centre is a local Christian Mission ministering throughout the Annapolis Valley. We partner together with this home mission to share the grace and truth of Jesus with young women and men facing life and death decisions. The Valley Care Pregnancy Centre is active in ministering to needy women and men facing crisis pregnancies, struggling with parenting, needing support through adoption and those wanting healing from deep regret after an abortion.

This Pregnancy Centre offers ongoing support, counselling, material aid, love, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone who needs help. Through this home mission, lives are being saved and hearts are turning to faith in Jesus and they are being connected to the local church.

This Baby Bottle Campaign is one way we can all work together to pray, raise awareness in the community and supply practical support for these Moms, Dads and Babies in need.

It’s really simple. Just take a baby bottle home, pray for this mission and over the next few weeks put a donation of cash or cheque in the bottle and return it to church on Father's Day Sunday.

It’s a simple and effective way to make a powerful impact for the Gospel here in our own back yard.

Together, we can make a big difference. By this time next year, a baby will be born who would not have existed if it were not for your support. Thank you.

SEND-A-KID-TO-CAMP FUND - As summer comes close, and as applications from families for funding to help send kids to camp come in, we need funds to give away! If you are able, consider making a donation to our Send a Kid to Camp fund and making an eternal impact on the next generation! http://www.nmbc.ca/sendakid


The children have been in New Minas schools for over two months, travelling each day by school bus and adjusting well in the classroom with the help of additional ESL support. Also, the three youngest have been enrolled in a soccer program for the summer months.

The parents are receiving ESL training at VCLA in Kentville four mornings a week and grandmother is receiving similar support though volunteers at home. They have received social support from the local Syrian community in addition to that of committee members.

The family members have had appointments with a family doctor and a dentist as required under the refugee program. They are enrolled in MSI.

Mohammad has passed his “written” driver’s test. In addition, he has been assigned a garden plot at the Acadia Community Farm as he has been itching to get his hands in the soil in his new country. He has a portable greenhouse set up in the house and is also preparing a small plot at their rental house for planting when the weather is suitable. Ultimately his goal is to farm in the area.

The committee members have supported the family on a regular basis, but could use additional congregational support with driving and attendance at medical appointments and children’s sports activities.

If you can help, please contact Lori Noseworthy at lori.noseworthy@gmail.com or Helen Lawson at helanne27@hotmail.com

Worship Circle .png

FRIDAY: NMBC WORSHIP CIRCLE - We are hosting our 1st Worship Circle on Friday, March 8 from 6:30-8pm. All ages are welcome to gather in the lobby to sing and play together using as many acoustic instruments as can fit in the room. Here’s what you’re encouraged to bring: an acoustic guitar or acoustic bass, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, and hand percussion (shakers, cajon, tambourines, etc). And of course come prepared to sing your heart out as we join together on familiar worship songs and learn from each other. Can’t wait to see you! Have questions? Please contact Pastor Paul Fowler paul.fowler@nmbc.ca

Here are some benefits from joining in on a worship circle (as noted by DanWilt.com)

• Young people gain confidence in both playing instruments and flowing in worship expression.

• Older people break out of their confines and try new things.

• The “all-age” dynamic brings people together.

• Songs are taught to small group leaders.

• Band members learn how to linger in a song, rise and fall with dynamics, and respond musically to changes.

NMBC WORSHIP CIRCLE - We are hosting our 1st Worship Circle on Friday, March 8 from 6:30-8pm. All ages are welcome to gather in the lobby to sing and play together using as many acoustic instruments as can fit in the room. Here’s what you’re encouraged to bring: an acoustic guitar or acoustic bass, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, and hand percussion (shakers, cajon, tambourines, etc). And of course come prepared to sing your heart out as we join together on familiar worship songs and learn from each other. Can’t wait to see you! Have questions? paul.fowler@nmbc.ca

Here are some benefits from joining in on a worship circle (as noted by DanWilt.com)

• Young people gain confidence in both playing instruments and flowing in worship expression.

• Older people break out of their confines and try new things.

• The “all-age” dynamic brings people together.

• Songs are taught to small group leaders.

• Band members learn how to linger in a song, rise and fall with dynamics, and respond musically to changes.

2019 Women's Conference.jpg

NMBC WONEN’S CONFERENCE - Mark your calendars. We will hold our 2nd annual conference on April 5&6. Come out for some wonderful teaching by Colleen Delong and worship led by Gina Cormier. We will have workshops by some fantastic women from our church. Cost $20 and includes lunch. Questions?  Contact Lara Ingles (inglesfamily@gmail.com) or Laurel Jamieson (laureljamieson@gmail.com).
