Baptist Men - (Brotherhood)
Ways to Give to Disaster Relief
The month of September is the designated month to receive the North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO). This crucial offering funds NC Baptist Men, Baptists on Mission, Disaster Relief, and several other mission efforts. We hope you will encourage your congregations to give to the NC Missions Offering this year. Our hearts have been touched by the devastating Hurricane Harvey and its effects on the good people living in Texas. There has been epic flooding in Texas and Louisiana. Along with giving to the NCMO you can give to hurricane relief efforts that are currently underway. Below you will find information directing you on how to give.
The UBA will have a trailer to collect relief supplies for those effected by Harvey on 9/7/17. Please see the information below for directions on giving:
