Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
It is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to The New Covenant Baptist Church where God calls us to be equipped for the responsible Christian discipleship through worship, service, growth, evangelism and fellowship. Our mission is to Evangelize the Sinner, Equip the Saints and Exalt the Savior.
I am honored that you have taken the time to visit us today on the web, and we at New Covenant would like for you to know that our doors are open to all. We strive to promote a championship spirit hinging on team work. God has created you to be great, and we would love to help you discover, through the word of God, the champion that resides in you.
Good, better, best never let it rest until your good is better and your better is best. Remember....successful people add value to themselves, but significant people add value to others.
Rev. & Mrs. Robert C. Drake Sr.
To the New Covenant a Baptist Church Family,
In light of the pandemic of the Coronavirus, COVID-19, I wanted to reach out with some additional encouragement. We’re all treading ground we’ve never tread before, so understandably there is a lot of fear and anxiety about the future and the unknown. But I want to share this verse with you from
Psalm 46: 1 - 3 which encourages us,
“God is our refuge and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble. So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea.
Let the oceans roar and foam.
Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!”
Psalms 46:1-3 NLT
We serve God and He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think! Many lives are being impacted by emotionally, physically, economically and spiritually and I just want to express my gratitude for you and your support during this time where we all face the unknown. Know that we are praying for you and your family.
We will be abiding by the recommendation of our governor not to physically have worship on Sunday but we will be broadcasting our worship experience on Facebook Live as well as our new YouTube channel (New Covenant 1190).
We also ask that you will continue to support NCBC financially as you have been doing by using the Givelify app or you can drop them off at the church on Sunday morning between the hours of 11:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M.
Please be patient with us during these trying times, for I truly believe that “This too Will Pass”
Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in the moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
So I not only want to encourage you to lean on our Almighty God, finding refuge and strength Him, but I also challenge you to be prayerful, loving and kind to friends, family and neighbors as they seek to make the best decisions.
We want to remind everyone to take the following steps to minimize their risk for exposure:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick with a fever or cough.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
And as you encounter one another, greet each other with a friendly wave or an elbow bump.
This is also a great time for evangelism, and we are aware that everyone will not receive this encouragement, so we are asking you to share this with your friends and family!
