National Day of Prayer May 2

Our hope is that individuals, churches, and spiritual leaders in America, will humble ourselves and unify in prevailing prayer for the next great move of God in America. We can come together in as a visible union, standing together in prayer. We can pray more than ever before, and practice extraordinary prayer for the next great move of God in America that will catapult the message of the gospel nationally and internationally. 


All believers are urged to gather to pray at this unity service at Faith Covenant Church ( 2449 NC-172, Sneads Ferry, NC). We'll pray from noon to 1pm (lunch hour).

YOU CAN SPONSOR CHILDREN FROM OUR WEBSITE 


Now, you can go to the Children of Promise web page to sponsor a child. Tell your church and friends about this new opportunity.

We are excited about this easy option to sponsor children. As time goes by, we will offer more children who can be sponsored. 

If you go to the web page and have any questions or want to sponsor a child with options not offered (from a different country, a certain age, etc.) simply call us and talk with us.

PRESS ON Campaign For the Future!


The race isn't won by those who start the race; it's won by those who finish the race. Paul wrote in Philippians 3:13-14:  


Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.


PRESS ON is the theme of our three-year Stewardship Campaign. Together we will persevere in our efforts to reach more people for Christ. We are raising funds to provide property and facilities for room for NRCC to grow. How will God use you to help the ministry of NRCC as we PRESS ON?

What is Apologetics?


The word apologetics comes from the Greek word apologia found in 1 Peter 3:15, "Always be prepared to give an answer [defense –apologia] to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have." Apologia is a legal term that simply means “defense.” Apologetics is a branch of Christian theology that is concerned with making a defense, or case, for the truth claims of the Christian Faith. The purpose of Apologetics is not to apologize for God but to present reasonable explanations for believing Christianity is true.

Choose Life tags are available NOW in NC!


As you may have heard, even though there was a big splash with the announcement that the 4th District Federal Court had reversed its decision about the legality of the NC Choose Life license plate, there have still been more steps required before manufacturing could begin.

The license plates are available for order through the NCDMV. Cost is $25 a year with $15 of that going to pregnancy care centers all around NC. This is a subtle but important message to our fellow citizens of how important human life is to Our Lord. Click the link below to apply.
