Manning & Jennifer Brown
Director of Chaplaincy Ministry
We welcome with us Sunday Manning & Jennifer Brown. Manning and Jennifer were married in 1988 right out of college, leaving for active duty with the Air Force soon after. Manning served nearly 22 years in a variety of roles. Since retiring from the Air Force, he worked as an administrator and adjunct faculty member at Baptist Bible College (now Clarks Summit University). In 2013, he assumed responsibilities as Director of Marketing and Communications, and then, in 2015, Director of Chaplaincy.
While in the military, Manning had numerous opportunities to serve the Lord in churches and chapels literally around the country and the world. In his role as Director of GARBC Chaplaincy Ministries, he ministers to the needs of our chaplaincy families and communicates to the churches of our fellowship the opportunity for outreach through military, institutional, and community service chaplaincy.

Ladies Paint Night
Friday, January 31 at 7:00 p.m.
Throw off those January winter blues! Come to Ladies’ Paint Night on Friday, January 31 at 7:00 p.m. Details and registration will be coming to you in a few weeks. So mark your calendar and plan now who you will invite to bring as your guest. It will be a canvas paint this year, but just like last year, no craft talents needed!!
We do need to collect 14-16 ounce vegetable cans. A basket is set up at the Collection Center for you to leave them. It would be great if you can wash your cans, so they are clean when you leave them. It will save us some time and save the Collection Center some mess! Thank you in advance!
New Ministry Center Key Fobs
The new fob system has been installed in the Ministry Center and will be in effect the week of November 24. If you wish to have access to the Ministry Center, you will need to fill out a Building Access Request Form, whether or not you currently have a fob for the main building. The current fobs can be programmed to work on the new system, but we are asking only those who have a weekly or biweekly need for access to the Ministry Center to complete a form. Forms are available at the NBCLife desk or in the church office. They can be turned in to Dan Jaworski, Sr. or the church office. After November 24, the locks on the Ministry Center will be changed, and the current keys will no longer work.
