This Great Commission effort is what we are all part of at FBC as we
Glorify Christ in Worship, Discipleship, and Mission.
FBC Bettendorf gives 15% off the top to the Cooperative Program (CP). This 15% supports the Baptist Convention of Iowa (BCI), the International Mission Board (IMB), the North American Mission Board (NAMB), as well as our six Southern Baptist Seminaries and the Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission (ERLC) all of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC).
Special Offerings in addition to the 15% CP giving are also contributed. 100% of the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering (LMCO) goes to support international missionary effort through the IMB. Over 3,700 missionaries world-wide are supported by this. 100% of the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering (AAEO) goes to support North American missionary efforts through NAMB. Another 3,000 + missionaries in North America are supported by this.
We also usually take up a special offering for the Baptist Convention of Iowa (BCI) in September. Of note, the BCI voted last year to send 60% of its offering/receipts on to the SBC, leading the way of state convention giving.
We praise God for his provision and for the opportunity to participate in the work of Southern Baptist to make the Gospel known throughout Bettendorf, Iowa, the United States, and around the world!
