WHY TAKE PERSPECTIVES?
God has a "world-sized" role for every Christian in His global purpose. Whether believers go to distant countries or stay at home is a secondary issue. The primary issue is what most people are hungry to discover: vision to live a life of purpose! Discovering that vision makes this course crucial, for every Christian.
Fulfilling the Great Commission is doable in our lifetime!
How will you join God in His mission to reach the nations?
WHAT IS PERSPECTIVES?
Perspectives is a fourteen week course, taught by 14 different missionaries, professors, pastors or entrepreneurs, on Tuesday nights at NRHBC beginning January 23, 2018. It is designed around four missions perspectives — Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic. Each one highlights different aspects of God's global purpose to redeem the nations.
The Biblical and Historical sections of this course reveal a biblical understanding, based on the historic fact, of God's relentless mission from the dawn of history to redeem the nations. The Cultural and Strategic sections underscore that we are in the midst of a costly, but very "do-able" task, confirming the Biblical and Historical hope to see a member of every tribe, tongue, and nation worshiping King Jesus!

The Deacon Ministry from both our NRH and Cross Church Campuses is hosting a banquet to honor the widows and widowers in our church family. It will be Sunday, October 15 at 5 PM in the 26 Wellness Center at the NRHBC Campus. Widows and widowers, this dinner is our gift to you. You may RSVP in the Ministry Gallery or the church office through next Sunday, October 8. You may invite additional guests for $10 each. Deacons, please be sure to RSVP as well. Deacons are $15 each or $25 per couple. Our special guest this year is Paul Smith, formerly of The Imperials. This will be a great night of fellowship and worship.
This will be a historic day in our church’s sixty plus years of history. We will break ground for the construction on our second campus. We have been longing for this day for more than four years, and I cannot wait. Here’s what you need to know:
• We will meet on the land at 5:00 PM
• Everyone is invited to bring a shovel for the groundbreaking. All of us have worked toward this day and all of us will break the ground together. We will even provide small shovels for our youngest children. So, throw a shovel in the back of your car.
• The outline of the building will be marked off and we will worship together on the future site. You will have the opportunity to prayer-walk the area as well.
• Steel-City Pops will be on location for the event with celebration popsicles - one per person.
