Many North Carolina Baptist churches are getting started on a new church year and re-launching ministries after the summer. For many churches, that includes budget planning. Don’t forget prayerful consideration of your church’s Cooperative Program giving!
Remember that the Cooperative Program is how North Carolina Baptists from the mountains to the sea work together for missions and ministry.
It’s how we support: starting a new church every three or four days in North Carolina; evangelistic ministries, such as the youth ministry at Caswell — some 8,000 youth took part this summer and 521 made first time decisions for Christ and 4.000 made rededications; Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina, ministering to thousands of children and families through facilities across the state, plus ministering to developmentally disabled adults through nine group homes; Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute, training hundreds for church ministry and leadership; NC Baptist Aging Ministry, helping Baptists address the needs of elderly.
Remember that the Cooperative Program also funds the International and North American mission boards and our more than 10,000 missionaries, plus the six Southern Baptist seminaries, including Southeastern in Wake Forest, N.C.
Times are tough in today’s economy. But though times call for churches to be at their strongest, and we are stronger as we work together in Kingdom ministry.
