Vision and Faith:
The Story of Nassau Bay Baptist Church
Nassau Bay Baptist Church was founded on faith. It all started with a vision. In 1962 slightly more than two dozen people had a vision for a Baptist church in the then sparsely populated Clear Lake area. Meeting in December in several homes, the vision grew rapidly. In fact, at just the second Sunday service, Rev. Al Novak, a retired Navy Chaplain and local pastor, along with his wife Ann, became the first members of the local congregation. He fulfilled the dream of Floyd King, the meeting organizer and next to join, who announced "God sent you here." Novak soon became the part-time mission pastor. The only property the church owned was a pulpit, which was dutifully carried from home to home for each service. Charter members June Vernon and Ruby Wright are still active members of NBBC.
Page CXVI with NBBC for worship and concert June 30th
Boulder, CO based Page CXVI—Reid and Latifah Phillips and Dann Stockton— made a name for themselves by taking traditional worship hymns and expertly transforming them into experimental artistic expressions, bringing to the world a new way to understand the role of hymns for the modern listener. The band formerly performed and toured as The Autumn Film, leading worship at churches around the country before submitting to their calling to recreate hymns in a more-accessible fashion.
The moniker Page CXVI was adopted from page number 116 in a particular copy of the novel The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis, the sixth book in the The Chronicles of Narnia series. Page CXVI employed their cryptic name intentionally – it's drawn from the page number in a particular copy of The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis, specifically the passage where Aslan begins to sing Narnia into creation out of a black void.
Since the formation of the band, the three have recorded four Hymns albums and have toured "just about every state." They are readying their latest collection of Hymns, an ambitious remix compilation titled re:hymns that amasses their four-album discography. re:hymns naturally fuses organic and electronic instrumentation, allowing Page CXVI to experiment with and integrate alternative textures in which to tell their story. This stretches to include subtle synthesizer phrases, minimalistic supporting percussion, and energetic drums that drive the album forward, providing also a solid foundation for Phillips' introspective lyrics and lush vocals. Page CXVI is also planning a lullaby collection of Hymns to be released this fall.

NBBC Children leading the way....
One of the Club 56ers brought forth the need of a family in the area that was on hard times. She is friends with one of the children of the family and asked Club 56 to help out. Over the course of three weeks, $175.00 was collected in money and gift cards to be given to the family. This is what Club 56 is all about. The preteens decide which direction and what ministries we can provide. We wanted to make the congregation of church aware that the children of this church will lead, will share, will love. Let us pray for the preteens as they become the youth of tomorrow and the adults of the future. Pray that they remain in the Spirit and keep the compassion they have displayed for their neighbors.
