Three Nickels

three nickels fund 2015
Three Nickels is a missions fund-raising program to help people living and dying in extreme poverty throughout the world. The yearly goal is to have 100 families or individuals pledge to give at least $1 per week (3 nickels per day). In 2015, our Three Nickels fund will:
• Support Doctors without Borders in its work to stem the spread of Ebola and prepare for future outbreaks
• Aid Next Generation Nepal in its mission to rescue, rehabilitate and reconnect trafficked and exploited children with their families
• Provide clean, sustainable drinking water to rural communities through Watering Malawi

with us Sundays. Casual attire is cool. Early Tessera service in Chapel @ 8:45 AM is "contemporary" flavored. 11 AM worship is in the main sanctuary. Open hearts and minds recommended. Sunday School @ 9:45 AM with classes for everyone.

passportkids camp 2015

who are we?
We are the only Baptist congregation in Greensboro that is welcoming and affirming of everyone who follows Jesus as Lord. So we accept gay and lesbian Christians as well as straight ones! Being radically inclusive is not our thing—our thing is radically following Jesus, or doing the best we can, and trying not to embarrass Jesus by our following. Some would call us liberal or moderate. We are an inclusive, fun faith community where persons from all walks of life feel comfortable worshiping and working together to bring Christ's love to the world. We are not affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. We are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA, Alliance of Baptists and Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Read more.
