 Plan to Protect
Just a reminder that if you are helping with any child under the age of 18 at NBBC, you MUST have completed the full P2P course once and take the refresher each year thereafter and a copy of your certificate must be on file in the office. In addition, we must have an up-to-date (within 3 years) police check on file.
Don’t remember when you last took the course? It’s probably time for your refresher. Please email Beth at to request the link. She will register you with P2P and they will send the link to you.
Please note that it is YOUR responsibility to do the course, get your police checks done and forward them to the office. If you do not have the training, you will be unable to help with the children. This is a condition of our insurance and applies to everyone without exception.

Men of Integrity Devotional Booklet
If you have been using this devotional booklet put out by Promise Keepers (a copy of which can be found on the table by the Welcome Centre), please be aware that the November/December issue will be the final issue. Christianity Today, the company that has been printing it, has decided that they will no longer produce it. Promise Keepers will be developing their own daily devotional that will be available exclusively online or via email. If you would like to receive these devotions, go to for more details. 
The online version will start January 1/18.
