Calvary Baptist Church cooperates with other Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) churches as part of the Southern Baptist Convention to send missionaries around the world and across North America. Calvary supports these missionaries by contributing to the SBC Cooperative Program. We also offer special offering collection times throughout the year for individuals to give directly to the International Mission Board (IMB), North American Mission Board (NAMB), Dakota Baptist Convention (DBC) and local needs as they arise.
April Special Offering Time:
The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering is much more than an offering envelope and an annual missions-giving emphasis. When people give to the offering, 100 percent of their gift will be transformed into missionary salaries and ministry supplies. Those missionaries and supplies will help others hear the message of Christ and respond in faith to His offer of salvation. Time and again our missionaries relate how the offering is their lifeblood. They know that behind each penny given, there is a Southern Baptist who believes in what they do and are affirming the need to equip them to share the gospel with those who need a Savior.
September Special Offering Time:
The Baker Mission offering is used to meet the needs here in the Dakotas such as reaching out to those affected by disasters, helping pastors and their families as they face emergencies, and partnering with churches as they engage in ministry events in their community.
December Special Offering Time:
Since 1888, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for international missions has supported Southern Baptist missionaries as they share the gospel around the world. The offering represents 59 percent of IMB total annual support. Every penny you give to the offering goes directly to support missionaries, including salaries, medical care, housing, transportation, and children’s education.
