February 20, 2018: LaLisa Carpenter
LaLisa is the wife of Craig, the mother of eight children (three biological and five adopted), and the grandmother to three grandchildren.  She has been a nurse for over thirty years and currently works full time as a family nurse practitioner at McDowell Medical in Marion, North Carolina.  Over the last ten years, she has felt God’s call to lead medical mission teams to Ukraine and Brazil with Hands on Missions in Shelby, N.C. and has made multiple trips over the years.  Her life like many has had its difficulties.  As a young woman, she watched her mother battled dementia for ten years. Later as a young mom, at the age of 35, LaLisa herself was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.  However, nothing would prepare her for the illness and death of one of her children.  Join us as she discusses how God’s Grace has brought her through and continues to carry her through some of the darkest days of her life.

March 20, 2018: “Maudine”
“She’s back!!!!” Maudine joined us last October and we could not get enough! Get ready to belly laugh until you cry as you listen and experience “Maudine”. In her own “elegant southern” way, she just tells it like it is.  You’ve thought it and Maudine says it! She might even sing a tune for you.  Norma Mott, is a woman of many gifts and talents. She is the wife of Carroll Mott, grandmother of two, great-grandmother of two, has been a surgical nurse for 22 years and currently teaches nursing for the Foothills Nursing Consortium.  Norma is an air force veteran and a member of Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church, Shelby. She enjoys singing, traveling and last but not least, is a “hooker”.  Wool rug hooking that is. You can ask her about that craft. You will have a wonderful time as she brings “Maudine” out for a visit.    

 

April


Perhaps you can’t travel to help folks recover from a disaster. Maybe you can’t give a large sum of money to help. You may ask “what can I do”?
“Raising Hope for Puerto Rico” April 7, 2018
Northside Baptist Church is planning to host a ‘walk’ to raise money for Puerto Rico as they recover from the devastation of two hurricanes last September. The focus of our NC Disaster Recovery in 2018 is to replace roofs for a multitude of families. For many roofs this includes structural materials like trusses and plywood. Each roof will cost between $3,000 and $5,000. We would love to put roofs on several homes in Puerto Rico!
We will follow the pattern of the Pregnancy Resource Center walks. We will ask individuals to be team leaders. Each team will have at least 10 walkers, each walker will find at least 10 sponsors, who will sponsor them for at least $10. In doing so, each team will raise $1,000 or more. If an individual would like to simply come and walk that day, we will ask for a $10 donation to the cause.
We will also need a lot of volunteers to help us prepare for this event and to carry it out. We need advance help in the areas of planning and publicity. We will need volunteers on April 7 to help with set-up, parking, registration, finances, leading teams of walkers, children’s activities, a water station, and clean-up.
Northside’s physical address: 1220 Scenic Dr., Shelby, 28150
In case of rain, the walk will be held in the gymnasium of Bethel Baptist Church: 606 S. DeKalb St., Shelby, 28152
Please contact Pastor Neal Efird by e-mail [email protected] or call 704-482-9091 to help plan, to volunteer, and/or be a team leader!

“Little is much when God is in it !!”

“Music of Forever”

“Music of Forever” grew out of a lifetime of experience in ministry, music, and drama. The Lathans both come from strong Christian backgrounds and are so excited to share their original melodic drama with you!

The music presented encompasses multiple styles. The listener will hear Classical, Gospel, Reggae, Rock, and Contemporary songs all within a Christian setting. There is something for everyone to be able to connect with the love of Christ. Stirring soliloquies from those close to Jesus will engage and carry the audience into the world of hope everlasting! In just under an hour, your assembly will be transported into the world of Jesus Christ as they witness his ministry of everlasting love. Come meet those who were closest to Jesus   …Hear their stories, Witness their miracles, Be present at the Resurrection!!!  This intimate production provides Alan with the setting necessary to bring the audience into the world of the Christ as he takes you on the journey of Jesus and his ministry, while Hillary sets the atmosphere with sacred piano pieces that encompass music from contemporary to classical styles. Follow the path of love led by Jesus.
