In addition to our own Sandy Ridge efforts, we are also supporting other local churches' efforts through the Catawba Valley Baptist Association. 1.5% of our general fund giving goes to this effort. 1% of our general fund offerings goes to NC Baptists on Mission. Through our designated, 10-52 offerings, we spend thousands of dollars a year on missions trips that involve our own church members.
We give 7.5% of our general giving to statewide support of local churches and local church planting through the North Carolina State Convention. We furthermore give 1% of our general fund giving to the NC Baptists on Mission. We also give 3% of our 10-52 offerings to the Baptist Hospital & 5% to the NC Childrens' Home.
Through the North American Mission Board, we give both through our cooperative program and through our 10-52 to missions partners on this continent to do what we do here at Sandy Ridge.
Through the International Mission Board, we give both through our cooperative program and through our 10-52 to the same efforts. Men and women in all settings--many of which are dangerous--give their lives for the Gospel.
