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.
Check out this month’s roundup of resources, including helpful resources for the “Fill the Tank” baptism emphasis and ways to promote the North Carolina Missions Offering. Furthermore, there is the annual meeting website, how to film a “3 Circles” training video and the Faith Talks Family devotional.
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.

The North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO) is a special offering received this month that supports the ministries of Baptists on Mission, church planting, mission camps, associational projects and mobilization ministry projects. This year’s NCMO theme is “Relief for today. Hope for tomorrow.” based on Romans 15:13. You and your church can use these available resources to promote this year’s offering.
