The Cooperative Program
simply defined is: Caring People Together Touching the World.
Harrisburg Baptist Church gives 15% of our church approved budget each year through the Cooperative Program to Southern Baptist causes. In 2005, this was $368,643.00. We also give 1% of our church budget to the Lee County Baptist Association. We participate in all three major Southern Baptist offerings also to undergird our mission causes. There are several other mission causes we support through our church budget as well.
While we believe in giving to and supporting mission causes and ministries, we also have a strong emphasis on participating in missions. We average three to five mission trips each year. Many of our youth, singles and individual members participate in local, state, national and international missions. These mission trips are paid for by individuals, church sponsored events to raise money and special gifts. Our desire is to have a balance of giving to missions and actually being involved in hands-on mission work.
