We support the Cooperative Program through planned and consistent giving as a percentage of general giving.

Through your giving the Cooperative Program & the Southern Baptist Convention we support: children’s homes, missionaries both in North America & internationally, new church starts, children’s camps, disaster relief and six seminaries.
Throughout the year we participate through prayer and giving including:
- Annie Armstrong for the support of North American missionaries
