Every month, we spotlight five helpful resources for you as you seek to walk closely with the Lord and make disciples. Many of these resources are created by the staff of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSCNC) to help meet the ministry needs of pastors and lay leaders across the state.
Take a look at this month’s resource list, which includes a collection of promotional materials for an Easter offering and week of prayer. Also, this top five includes a booklet to help keep your children’s ministry held to North Carolina child care regulations and a map to find pockets of people near you that need to hear the gospel. Lastly, there is a printable prayer prompt bookmark to help in praying for revival and a booklet to help make disciples in your family.
In addition to the resources featured here, many more can be found at ncbaptist.org/resources. You may also follow @ncbaptist on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, where we’ll share other helpful resources throughout the month.
