GREENSBORO, N.C.(BP) -- North Carolina Baptists gave more than $32 million dollars to Southern Baptist missions and ministries in the last fiscal year, leading the 42 state conventions in cooperative giving through both the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering (more than $14.6 million) and the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering (more than $6 million).
Messengers to the 2016 Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSCNC) annual meeting, Nov. 14-15, voted to approve a budget that increases the percentage of Cooperative Program funds forwarded to the Southern Baptist Convention causes for the 2017 fiscal year to 40.5 percent (or $11,417,637), representing a half-point increase over last year's allotment. The total budget for 2017 comes to $30,375,000, which is up nearly 3 percent over 2016. Read More
