“AFTER ALPHA” THE JESUS LIFESTYLE [beginning June 6] - Join us Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm for an engaging Nicky Gumbel video study that takes a closer look at the Sermon on the Mount and presents the life that Jesus wants us to live. How to deal with anger. How to handle money. What to do when faced with difficult people. Simple, memorable and profound. Jesus’ words in the Sermon on the Mount are as relevant and as challenging today as they were 2,000 years ago. For more info please contact Pamela Flawn (pamelaflawn@gmail.com or 902-538-8338)

BIBLE & LIFE CONFERENCE ON PRAYER [June 16-17] - Join us at NMBC on Friday (7:00-9:30pm) and Saturday (9:30-2:30pm).

LORI NOSEWORTHY’S MISSION TRIP TO BOLIVIA - "It was a great privilege to travel to Bolivia with the Canadian Baptist Ministries' Praxis program last month. Our team of four Canadian students and a professor, along with four Bolivian students, spent time with the CBM staff in Bolivia. We studied the environment from the perspective of Creation Care, We also learned some of what our Global Field Staff do in Bolivia, and how they support the Bolivian Baptists in integral mission. We visited schools and after-school programs for children in difficult family circumstances and saw some projects that support vulnerable families in both rural and urban settings. We worshiped in both large and small churches and at the Baptist Seminary in Cochabamba. I was encouraged to see God's work in a different cultural context and to learn that we are more alike than we are different."
