Welcome All Come Join And Worship With Us!
We tasted all the amazing goodies. We had 8 contestants and everything was so delectable. We voted and the winner is Pat Erricson and she made the Lemon Meringue Bites. Way to go Pat!
During the month of February Stop & Shop will donate $1 to Care & Share for each bouquet sold. Just make sure to pick a bouquet that is labeled Bloomin' 4 Good when you shop. The cost is $10.99 for the bouquet.
We asked for packaged underwear for men and woman for Reliance House and you delivered. WE are so grateful not only to our church NBC, but to St. John's Christian Church in Groton for joining in on this amazing cause. What a success!
Starting February 25th, following worship, the Vision Committee will begin a 5-week book study of “Canoeing the Mountains” by Tod Bolsinger. And you are invited to participate! Lewis & Clark’s plan was to find a water route to the Pacific. But as Lewis stood looking at “the most terrible mountains I ever beheld,” everything changed. What lay before them was nothing like what lay behind them. The moral of Lewis’ & Clark’s story is that, when we face mountains instead of rivers, we need to be willing to adapt and forge ahead, because “what got us here won’t take us there.” Likewise, the church in America is facing many unknowns ahead. Please join us as we begin to discern how to adapt in the ”uncharted territory” of the future. The book is available on Amazon.com.
MARK YOUR CALENDERS! March 17th our service will be led entirely by a team of gifted lay people. Come join us and see what the fuss is all about!
We believe that giving is an act of worship and a way to support the work of God's Kingdom. We offer a variety of ways to give. We continely ask for donations to fill bags for homeless for Reliance House. Suggested donations are socks, hats, handwarmers, first-aid kits, bottled water, combs, plastic spoon and forks, ready-made meals and snacks, scent-free soaps, shampoo, rain ponchos, sanitary pads, wipes...etc
March 28th our service is an adaptation of the ancient service of Tenebrae, which was developed during the 4th century. It is a service of worship which moves from light to darkness, with the fading light symbolizing the fading loyalty of the disciples and friends of Jesus; the deepening darkness symbolizes the growing shadow of the cross. The service will proceed without announcement; the congregation is invited to enter into the spirit of the service in solemn stillness.
Maundy is from the Latin word for "command" (as in, Jesus commanded us to do this) and commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus and his disciples. Here is the paragraph at the top of the Maundy Thursday bulletin
Please join us on April 7 as we get cookin’ with Jesus.
Someone’s in the kitchen with Jesus… US! Put on your aprons, grab your hot mitts, and get ready to cook up some laughs at the Devil’s expense with a light-hearted Holy Humor Sunday service. This year’s theme is “Food, Glorious Food!” We’ll visit "Chez Jesus," that fine dining establishment where all they serve is bread and wine. And we’ll cook up some laughs at the devil’s expense as we continue our celebration of the Resurrection.
Sunday mornings, at the church in person, 9:15 a.m.
The Niantic Baptist Church seeks to give visible form to that faith and fellowship to which God has called his people, acknowledging ourselves to be a church in and through which Jesus Christ continues to minister to the world by his Holy Spirit. We welcome all to our services of worship and into our fellowship.
We welcome you to join our worship which is a blend of traditional and informal. Our Lord accepts us as we are and we attempt to do the same for one another and ourselves. Our congregation shares prayer concerns openly during worship. We believe that church is more than just a Sunday service - it's about being a part of a community that supports and encourages one another.
