Mission NAC is a multi-church outreach ministry that seeks to help the needy in our community. Once again as the body of Christ in Nacogdoches, they have scraped and painted, roofed, built porches and carports, replaced windows and trim, delivered furniture, mowed, gardened, and landscaped for those who simply needed a hand up. This past June with over 400 people joining together to work for four days in our community, changed lives as the love of Christ was spoken and demonstrated – and so were over 20 homes!
We do this through a wide variety of activities that you will find listed on the web site, but most importantly through Bible studies for women and walking with one another. We invite and encourage you to join our group of women where you can get to know the Lord and walk in faith.
Our ministry serves a wide variety of women – working and stay at home women, married, singles, mothers, and seniors. We have a great Women’s Conference every fall and a Sister Talk held once every three months, which is designed to encourage, educate and empower every woman. Come grow with us!
Nac Bible Cornerstone Student Ministry
This is what our teenagers do in June. Want to join us?
In Life Group, Nehemiah Kids (1-3 graders), discussed who God is and that He loves them very much.
- “Our Father in heaven”—God is our heavenly Father; He made us
- “hallowed be your name”—“hallowed” means holy or perfect; God is perfect.
- “your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”— We look forward to God being recognized by all people on Earth as our Sovereign King.
- “Give us today our daily bread”—God provides everything we need
- “forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors”—We need God’s forgiveness, and He wants us to forgive others. • “And lead us not into temptation”—God can help us not to sin.
- “but deliver us from the evil one”—God is more powerful and has already defeated Satan.
N. K’s Memory Verse: “For God is the King of all the earth.” (Psalm 47:7)
N. K.s Challenge
N. K.’s should be able to recite their bible verses. N. K.s were also given a daily devotional that will help cement their learning from Life Group.
Please be sure to contact Ms. Donna for your weekly devotionals.
L I T (Leaders in Training)
L.I.T.s began to understand that their decision to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior is the most important decision of their lives.
They read Acts 16:16-24 of how Paul and Silas were put into prison, then focused on Acts 16:25-34 and discussed what happened to the jailer.
Weekly Memory Verse: “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” (John 1:12)
LITs should write down the names of three people with whom they intend to share their personal story of accepting Christ. One person might be a family member, but encourage them to think of people outside their home who might be lost and plan on sharing their testimony with them. This will be good practice and a good experience of letting Jesus speak through them as they share. LITs will be asked to share in Life Group their experience of talking to others about Jesus.
Please be sure to contact Ms. Robyn for your devotional books.
Hungry for Hope Jail Ministry
I was naked, and you clothed me, I was sick, and you visited me, I was in prison (jail) and you came to me.’ – Matthew 25:36
In July of this year, God opened the door wide open so I could begin Jail Ministry at the Nacogdoches County Jail. I believe God called me to minister to these women because I was incarcerated, physically and mentally just like them. For 25 years of my life, I had been addicted to crack cocaine and at one time, locked up in the same jail that I now visit to minister to women who are exactly where I used to be.
Jail ministry is a mission field you can be involved in without having to go half-way around the world. The opportunity for outreach to incarcerated women is tremendous. Women who need to see the hands and feet of Jesus, and though it has been rewarding, it has also been heartbreaking. It has been an opportunity to uplift the name of Jesus to a captive and needy audience. Some have come just to get out of their tanks for a while, but others come to seek healing for their brokenness and receive hope for a better tomorrow. A hope that can only come through a relationship with Jesus.
My purpose, is to tell my story, a message of redemption and hope. A message that lets them know that if God would, through the love of Christ deliver me, He can do it for them also. A message of transformation so that one day the veil will be lifted, and they can see themselves the way that God see’s them … Daughters of the King.
Sometimes discouragement sets in, but then I remember 1 Corinthians 3:16: “I have planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.”
Please pray that God will supply more resources that will become available to help these women when they are released. Pray that hope in and through Christ becomes alive in their hearts. Also pray for more women who have been called, and have a heart for jail ministry will come.
