Plan such things as...
Organizing the donated food supplies in their 'Food Locker.' (on a weekday only)
Taking a tour and prayer-walking/driving to pray for the children & staff
Scheduling a mission-work project (coordinating with the leadership at the home) with carpentry repairs, planting flowers & shrubs, painting, washing windows, washing cars, pressure-washing buildings/sidewalks, yard work or even pouring concrete.
Collect NON-Perishable items...kitchen utensils, cookware, shower curtains, bed linens, all occasion cards, disposable cameras, tote bags, luggage, gift cards (Food Lion/Walmart), restaurant gift cards (Golden Corral, Hardees, Pizza Hut, McDonalds)...although there is a Food RoundUp in the spring, needs are there ALL YEAR!
Planning Ministry Day Trips
North Roanoke Baptists are a part of many wonderful ministries that glorify Christ and care for people in His name. As your Director of Missions, I would enjoy helping your church family learn more about the ministries that you support. If a group from your church would be interested in a Day Trip to visit the International Mission Board in Richmond or one of the N.C. Baptist State Convention Ministries, please contact the association office.
We can help you plan a customized itinerary that can include several stops for the day that will be interesting, informative, and inexpensive as we travel to and from one of the many Baptist ministries that we support. We have contacts in every ministry that will help us schedule a visit. I would enjoy traveling with you if you would like for me to serve as a guide for the trip. For example, we can learn more about Kennedy Children’s Home, Cameron Boy’s Camp, Camp Mundo Vista, Fort Caswell Conference Center, Baptist State Convention, etc. North Carolina has many museums, historic sites, and points of interest that are free. Enjoy a day of fellowship; learn about ministries that you support; be encouraged and inspired to do the work of the Kingdom; rejoice in the life and opportunities that God has given us. For more information or brochures, please call the association office.
