Church Planting Celebration

Sermon by Steve Scoggins
Join us for a celebration of church planting in North Carolina, and learn how your congregation can be a part of what God is doing through church plants in our state. This special service on Monday night will highlight the great need for new churches to be planted in North Carolina and how church plants are engaging others with the gospel and making disciples. The service will also celebrate those who have been called to plant churches, many of whom are working with non-English speaking populations. State convention president Steve Scoggins, pastor of First Baptist Church of Hendersonville, will deliver the annual president’s address in conjunction with the service, which will highlight the overarching annual meeting theme of “God’s Great Work.”

Monday Evening
