Top 5 resources for July 2020

July 1, 2020

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 feature an online classroom for Sunday School and small groups leadership training, a 3 Circles how-to video, a Reading Your Bible with Confidence Study Guide training, and our annual meeting website. Lastly, there is a guide to discuss moving toward genuine gospel communities across racial lines.

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.
