  • International Student Furniture Giveaway

    08/19 (Sa)    8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

    Help us reach 300+ newly arrived international students.  We are collecting furniture donations at New Beginnings August 14th through 18th. Items needed for this year’s furniture giveaway: dressers, beds/futons, rugs, dishes, small tables, card tables, bed linens, lamps, bookcases, pot & pans, bicycles, desks, small sofas, mattresses, towels, chairs, baking dishes, rice cookers, silverware, mugs, microwaves, cups/glasses, and kitchen gadgets.  (We cannot take sofa sleepers, file cabinets, or anything more than two people can handle.)


    Volunteer to gather furniture items from members at New Beginnings to be delivered on Friday, August 18th.  Volunteer on a setup team or delivery team on August 19th.  All activities will take place at Washington University.  For more information or to sign up, contact travis.torblaa@nblc.net.

  • Operation Clean Stream

    08/26 (Sa)    8:00 a.m.

    We are in need of Operation Clean Stream volunteers to help clean up our local waterways.  This year, we will focus mainly on Brush Creek within the city limits of Pacific, so we will be mostly on land.  If there are folks who would rather be in canoes on the Meramec, they will need to provide their own watercraft and transportation to the river; we will return them to their vehicles at the end of the day.  We are also in need of 4x4 utility vehicles with trailers, skid steers, or other equipment that will make the job easier for everyone.


    The event will take place on Saturday, August 26th beginning at 8:00 a.m. for a breakfast of sausage, eggs, and our famous homemade cinnamon rolls! A fun dinner of pulled pork, baked beans, and many side dishes will follow in the evening at Lake Cattail’s pavilion, just south of Pacific. For more information or to sign up, contact Steve Myers at (314) 974-7446 or stevemyersformayor@gmail.com.

  • Muslim Outreach Seminar

    08/27 (Su)    2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

    She walked up and said, “I want to be your friend.”  Three years later her two Muslim friends were baptized as followers of Jesus.  Join us for this workshop to learn how easy it is to have Muslim friends and talk about your faith.  For more information or to sign up, contact travis.torblaa@nblc.net.

  • One Stop Faith Shop Kickoff

    08/30 (w)    6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

    Mixed Martial Arts, The Longest Ice Cream Sundae, Fabric Paint and T-Shirts Logo Contest!  The Christian faith is a fight. The Bible says we are to “RESIST THE DEVIL AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU” (James 4:7).  As we begin another school year and commit to gathering together in faith, we will begin some hardcore training.  Some from the XXI Century Fight Team will be sporting an exhibition of sorts.  AND … we are going to make the longest ice cream sundae you have ever seen in your life!  There will be something for 5th-6th, 7th-8th, 9th-12th, and Adults.  Also, while the youth are engaged, a parent info meeting will be happening in the A/C!
