|We here in the West Chowan Baptist Association are committed to the task of "producing much fruit" (John 15:8) by assisting our churches in the process of making "Christ Followers who will Follow Christ." Our vision of making "Christ Followers who will Follow Christ" is driven by the imperatives of Christ which are hung on the following three non-negotiable characteristics of a Christ Follower: 1) GIVE UP by Surrendering (Luke 9:23), Sacrificing (Luke 14:33) and Listening (John 10:27), 2) GIVE IN by Abiding in His work (John 8:31), Obeying His commands (Luke 5:27), and Walking in His Light (John 8:12), 3) GIVE OUT by Loving one another (John 13:35), becoming a Servant (John 12:26), and Sharing our faith (Matthew 4:19).|
Hurricane Matthew Update
The NC Baptist Men jumped into action almost immediately after the recent storms and are still with us. There are numerous stories of God's greatness during this time of recovery. Even our partners in the Hudson Baptist Association have come along side of us to provide recovery help.
The needs remain the same with the need for volunteers being the greatest. There is so much work to be done and so many families that need our help. Please pray about dedicating a day, weekend, or week to this effort. Additionally there are needs such as water, paper products, cleaning supplies, and Food Lion gift cards. If you would like to take them directly to Windsor please transport them to Cashie Baptist Church located at 221 Queens St., Windsor or bring them here to the MRC and we will make sure they get to the appropriate people. Additionally, if you would like to send funds you can send the money here (MRC) designating it for Windsor support or you can send the funds directly to Baptist Men and they will direct it to where you indicate.
If you have any further questions concerning recovery efforts please contact us here at the MRC (Mission Resource Center).
