Donate to the Children’s Service Project

 

Due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 42 million people may experience food insecurity, including a potential 13 million children.

The children of our church, with the support of the Christian Education ministry team, ask your support in caring for those in need. We have selected Feeding America as the place to give generously. Feeding America is the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization, and 98% of all donations goes directly into programs serving our neighbors across the country.

We have set up a Team Feed/Feeding America webpage. It will explain how Feeding America works plus give you much more information about hunger in America. This is also where you can make your donations.

Thank you for your generosity – your support of the children of NCoB – and the mission to do all things to the glory of God and our neighbors’ good!

Isaiah 58:10~~The Children’s International Bible
You should feed those who are hungry.
You should take care of the needs of those who are troubled.
Then your light will shine in the darkness.
And you will be bright like sunshine at noon.

Children’s Spring Service Project

 

The 2021 Children’s Spring Service Project will begin on April 18th. This year the children will be raising funds for Feeding America. Tune in to the April 18th worship service for a presentation of the project. Any parent wanting more information about how their child can be involved may contact the Christian Ed Ministry team.

 

Partners in Peace in Prince William County

Nokesville Church of the Brethren’s Inclusion Awareness Advocacy Initiative team invites you to pray and act for peace in Prince William County by standing together against hate in the face of social injustice and a local threat to one of our houses of worship.

We received this request:

As we come up on our annual Unity in the Community International Day of Prayer for Peace, we ask that all houses of worship in Prince William County come together in an absolute act of solidarity against hate. In the face of a national fight for social justice and human rights for all, we stand in solidarity together to say #HateHasNoHomeInPWC.

Against the back drop of social evolution, our only Jewish Congregation in Prince William County received a bomb threat on the eve of the month of their most Holy Days, and again we stand in solidarity together to say #HateHasNoHomeInPWC.

We stand together as a community knowing that we are stronger together. We are all supported and protected by Prince William County’s beautiful interfaith community, the Prince William County Police Department and Worship Watch, and our local legislators and leaders.

To show how strong we are together, we are asking all of our partners in peace to purchase a shirt and show their solidarity in the community. All proceeds will go to support ACTS, who has always been there to support our community.

Join us in wearing your desire that peace prevail on earth.

UPDATE –  Carillon Bells at Nokesville Church of the Brethren

Even though we haven’t met in the church building for the last several months, many of you in the Nokesville community as well as in the church have probably noticed that the Carillon Bell System in the church has not been working for quite a while.

Thanks to a small task team, led by Larry Nelson, and including Jeannette and Vernon Funkhouser and Mark Bishop, a quote has been obtained to replace the needed system parts so that once again music will be shared throughout the community.

The church has had major fund raising going on for the last several years for large and small projects that will allow the activities of Nokesville Church of the Brethren to continue to be a vital ministry and blessing to the Nokesville Community.  These efforts have included new air conditioning and heating units, a new roof, new windows and a new paved parking lot to name a few.

The replacement of the Carillon Bell System was not part of those plans.  We do have some funds that can be used to pay for the needed replacement system but not enough to cover the cost, which is $8,250.00.

We have been blessed as a church by so many contributions for our fundraising efforts.  We would like to reach out again to each of you to prayerfully consider if you feel led to give to this project.  If you do, please note “Carillon Bells” on the memo portion of your check and you can mail the check to the church at P.O. Box 56, Nokesville, VA 20182.  Or if you prefer, you can designate the Carillon Bells via the on-line giving website – Continue to Give.

We are excited at the opportunity to have the iconic sounds of the Carillon Bells once again ringing throughout our community.

 

We bought that bus!

Northern Virginia Brethren played a key role in making the bus for Queensland Girls’ School roll!  The Ken & Ted event put the project of acquiring the bus put the New Community Project’s She has a Dream campaign over the top. Now disabled children needing transport, teachers living at distance, and sporting teams looking for a match – they’ve all got a way to get there!
