New Creation Bible Church Report 2019
Grace, mercy, and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ! We thank God for the opportunity of New Creation Bible Church (NCBC) to serve in the Prince Frederick, MD community and for the PBA's continued support and partnership.
Listed below is a brief update of our work and prayer requests:
NCBC celebrated God's faithfulness in keeping this ministry for 4 years on June 7, 2019. NCBCbeganworshipping@5015 St.Leonard Rd., St.Leonard,MD20685onDecember 2, 2018. The current space is somewhat limited, we are currently exploring our options of rent the auction house from Larry and Kay Foreman.
We will continue to have Bible Study/Prayer on Fridays from 7:30pm -9:00pm.
We just completed working through the Disciples Path, Volume Ill and are now in volume IV.
We continue to have Sunday school for the adults and youth from 9:30am -10:4Sam, using Bible Studies for Life from Lifeway.
The Worship service will continue to start at 11:00 am. I continue to attend the COHORT Trainings with BCMD. I am currently serving on the BCMD Board of Directors.
I was nominated to facilitate the discussion topic on discipleship at the PBA Ministers meeting 2019-2020.
NCBC served as the coordinating church for the Calvert County Fair again this year.
NCBC continues to support several missions financially. NCBC promotes everyday evangelism using Evangelism Explosion, which all members have been trained in as we continue to make outreach and expansion a priority. We have had several individuals pray to receive Christ as a result of going out into the community.
NCBC continues to serve in the Prince Frederick community - Project Echo on the 4th Saturday of each month, care baskets given to the Fire and Sheriff departments.
NCBC continues to give 6% to the Cooperative Program and 4% to the PBA quarterly. We also give to Care Net Pregnancy Center, Lottie Moon, and Annie Armstrong.
NCBC's current average attendance for worship service is 40 people - which is an increase. The average attendance for Sunday school is 20 people.
I continue to nurture my relationship with the Lord by committing myself to prayer and the ministry of the Word, and also meditating and study of the Word.
Ongoing accountability with brothers in Christ - Pastor's Mason, Jones and Keith Corrick.
Last year I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, this year without any medical treatment no cancer was found.
Wisdom and patience as we wait on the Lord regarding additional space.
That NCBC would remain faithful to the Lord and continue trusting Him even with the upcoming move. That the Lord would provide a location for NCBC in Prince Frederick. That the Lord would raise up a praise and worship leader (musician) for NCBC.
That God would be glorified from the work which he has called us to in Prince Frederick.
Sincerely, "In Christ"
Ron M. Curry
