Resources For Your Church’s Cooperative Program Promotion
Promoting the CP is a great way to promote your church’s annual budget because you can show your church members how when they give to your church, and your church gives through the CP, it impacts everything we do as Oklahoma Baptists.
We have prepared resources to help show your church members how giving through the CP extends the impact of your church in our state, nation, and worldwide.
CP Month Celebration Ideas:
- Share the video with your church in a worship service, prayer meeting, or budget time.
- Celebrate the Impact of the CP. We have companion resources you can use for small groups, on social media, and in sermons.
- Pray for missions: We have included recent news for you to share with your church so they can pray for the advance of the Gospel through the many ministries supported by the CP.
- Call Church Members to Stewardship: Giving is an act of worship; it is also an act of fellowship with your church. The local church is the first place everyone should think of when they think of giving to support missions
