Missions Home and Abroad 

 
New Antioch is very blessed to be able to support those serving God in missionary work. In the past few years we have combined with other congregations to help spread and establish the Gospel in Ghana as well as other areas of the world, such as India (through World Evangelism) and Russia.  Currently we provide support for teachers in China.  We also support efforts in drilling fresh water wells in Western Africa.  We also support programs at home, such as House-to-House and others.
 
 
In a world where the youth is constantly bombarded with every type of immorality, it becomes even more imperative that there are activities and programs designed to help answer their needs. We contunually try to support our youth though sound Bible teaching and engaging lessons, game nights and get-togethers, and involvement in the averall activites of the congragation.  Additionally, when possible, we participate in the county-wide youth devotionals as well as the Christian Youth Conference held each winter in Gatlinburg.

College and University

We understand the need to learn and be involved in higher education.  But we also know that with these opportunities also comes the attacks from worldly influences, such as post-modernism, humamism, and agnosticism.  With many of our youth growing up and heading off to college, we feel that it is imperative to support those who would try to provide a sound and upright influence on university campuses. It is with this regard that we happily support the Christian Student Center at the University of North Alabama.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the past, New Antioch has hosted seminars intended to support our community. Topics have included Financial Peace and Marriage Enrichment. We are continuing to explore other events aimed at benefiting those who live in our area.
Benevolence
 
Again this Fall, members of New Antioch participate in a “Warm Coat Drive” to help provide necessary coats and clothing for those in need.  Look at our calendar for dates associated with this event. We also maintain a food pantry for those in our community and hold a back-to-school supply drive for families needing help with supply lists.  It is out hope and aim that we can share the message of the Gospel though our actions as well as the spoken word.  
 
 
New Antioch is very blessed to be able to assist with providing worship services at National Healthcare in Moulton.  We do this on each 5th Sunday of a month at 2:00 PM in the dining area of the facilities.  We also help with Childhaven orphanage and facilities.  We wish to always remember “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”  James 1:27
 
 
Each Summer we suspend our regular Wednesday Evening Bible Study to host a “Summer Series” of expert speakers on a chosen theme.  Our Summer Series usually starts the 1st Wednesday in June and continues for 10 weeks with a different speaker each week.  Please look for future announcements concerning themes and speakers.  The past few years we have used the Berean Study Series by Heritage Christian University as the basis for our summer program.  We also hold our annual Friends and Family day in the Fall as a kick-off for our Fall Gaopel Meeting.  Kids always look forward to VBS in the summer.  These and other activities not only enrich our spiritual lives but also provide opportunities for us to engage in fellowship and church family support.
