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.
This month’s resources are geared to help you and your church continue to grow this summer and be effective disciple-makers. The top five includes promotional resources for the new “Fill The Tank” baptism emphasis, a Church Revitalization Assessment Tool, a free e-book on VBS strategies for this summer, along with a Family Summer Guide. Lastly, there is a Reading Your Bible with Confidence Discovery Bookmark.
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.
Fill the tank
“Fill the Tank” is a statewide emphasis to see believers baptized on Sept. 12 in conjunction with Baptism Sunday around the world. Emphasizing baptism on a specific day is a great way to encourage thousands of people in our churches to take the next step of obedience and faith while presenting a picture of the gospel. You can use these resources to help promote this emphasis.
