three nickels fund
Three Nickels is a missions fund-raising program to help people living and dying in extreme poverty throughout the world. The yearly goal is to have 100 families or individuals pledge to give at least $1 per week (3 nickels per day). This year, our Three Nickels money will be used to care for victims of human trafficking in Indonesia (Eddy & Cindy Ruble's ministry), to build clean water systems in Thailand, and to buy mosquito nets (Against Malaria Foundation).

who are we?
We are the only Baptist congregation in Greensboro that is welcoming and affirming of everyone who follows Jesus as Lord. So we accept gay and lesbian Christians as well as straight ones! Being radically inclusive is not our thing—our thing is radically following Jesus, or doing the best we can, and trying not to embarrass Jesus by our following. Some would call us liberal or moderate. We are an inclusive, fun faith community where persons from all walks of life feel comfortable worshiping and working together to bring Christ's love to the world.
We are not affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. We are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA, Alliance of Baptists and Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. Read more.
Our periodic Bible Studies cover a wide range of topics. See our recent studies, including Homosexuality & the Bible.

cantata: appalachian winter
December 15 @ 11 AM: From the composer Joseph M. Martin comes music that celebrates the legacy of early American carols and hymnody. Presented by our adult choir, the cantata combines traditional sounds with more rustic elements, creating a blend that is fresh and pleasing - with new arrangements of carols like “Away in a Manger” and “O Little Town of Bethlehem” dance with traditional spirituals such as “Children, Go Where I Send Thee” and “Go, Tell It on the Mountain.” Narration weaves the movements together in a meaningful tapestry.
