Top 5 resources for November 2020

November 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 roundup includes a resource to help survivors of sexual abuse, a how to film a “3 Circles” training video, and a resource to protect your church and children. Additionally, check out the “Pray for 30 Days” prayer guide and an Advent devotional to be used leading up to Christmas.

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.
