Jim and Mary Doyle have been helping other misionaries in Africa. They are coming home in a few weeks but wanted to give us an update.
Here is what they have been up to. Please continue to pray for them, especially as they travel home.
Reaching For More
In 2014 we, as a church, are Reaching for More. We believe that we are to continue to grow in the Lord and reach to obtain those things which the Lord has for us, and expects for us. It should be our desire to excel in the things of the Lord, and to reach those things that we have not reached before. A preacher once said, "When is the last time you did something for the first time for God?" What a great challenge, but what a convicting question. We must always be striving to do more, grow more, and obtain more, for the cause of Christ.
We are pleased to announce a new section on our media page. We are now uploading New Manna Christian School chapel messages. These message are preached by various men, either on our staff or preachers that we invite in. All have been preached in our "Teen" chapel, or chapel for our older students.
What a great blessing to be able to have a school where we can preach to our students and see the hand of God move in their lives. God has richly blessed us and the families of the students that attend. Through chapel, many students have received Christ, grown spiritually, surrendered to full-time services, or gained a closer relationship with God. Nothing could be better for them.
We hope that you will listen to them, enjoy them, and receive a blessing. Here is a direct link to the chapel page. If you have problems with the link, simply go to our media page, click on "sermons", and then choose NMCS Chapel.
Students and teachers alike gathered this morning to begin the 19th year of New Manna Christian School. What a blessing that God has blessed us with a great place to send our children that will help parents "train up a child".
As I type this, the junior high and high school students are singing "I Love the Lord", filling the gym with praise to God. We as a school and church could not ask for more. Our kids growing up, loving the Lord and having a personal relationship with their Savior. God has been faithful to NMCS with a great number of students and a wonderful staff.
We covet your prayers as we get started and throughout the year. Pray for the administration, teachers, staff, and students. We are excited to see what God will do this year.
NNBC Apple Users
Now available. The New Manna Baptist app has been available on Google for sometime now. Well, Apple finally approved the app for release on the apple store. We are excited to have this for you on just about all platforms and hope that it is a blessing to you. We have included as much as possible from what everyone requested.
We pray that it is a blessing to you and a helpful tool for you. You will find the plan of salvation as the very first button on the app. Use this when a Bible is not available. Our goal and prayer is that not only it will be used to lead someone to Christ, but that someone would download it, read it and receive Him. What a great blessing that would be.
We will do our best to keep the music and messages as fresh as possible. As well as keep our calendar up to date. If you have any question, comments, or problems, please let us know. The only issue we have had so far is some phones will not play the audio unless they are connected to wifi. That appears to be phone issue and does not appear to be coding in the app itself. We are working on finding a solution.
