Hallelujah! Each week I get the opportunity to meet with the people of God it gets more and more exciting. I am grateful to our Lord for the privilege of serving as the Pastor of NPBC. Yesterday was a wonderful day of God’s great blessings. I am thankful for the members of NPBC.

As has been the case every week, our Church School is a very uplifting experience for all who participate. I appreciate our Supt. A.T. Monroe and his staff. Week after week the membership is afforded the opportunity to get sound Biblical information from Teachers who take time to prepare. I am grateful for those who are able to come earlier because we are starting Devotion earlier. A special shout out to the Grief Ministry who led out in devotion.
