October is Cooperative Program Month

Since 1925, the Cooperative Program has provided the means
for the local church and all Southern Baptist to accomplish
more for Christ than they could ever do separately.
Through CP giving, the local church is supporitng:
International Missionaries, North American Missionaries,
& State Missionaries.  In addition, your CP giving also benefits your local association by providing a variety of helps, conferences, and other resources, which in turn benefits the local church.
