2 this book belongs to: My Name: My Pastor s Name: The Name of My Church: Date: Page 1

3 When I was a child I started learning about the Cooperative Program in Sunday School and in RAs. I learned that by giving my offering to my church I not only gave to support my church, but many mission efforts as well. My offering supported missionaries in my state, my country, and across the world. My offering also supported Baptist colleges and seminaries, children s homes, homes for the elderly, and many other ministries. Now, in your church life you will have similar opportunities to learn about the Cooperative Program. Whether you are studying this material in Sunday School, GAs, RAs, Team Kid, Awana or some other activity, you will be thrilled to learn how God will use your Cooperative Program offering to touch the whole world. As you complete the activities in this booklet, you will begin to learn what the Cooperative Program is and how it works. I believe you will also understand how vital a tool the Cooperative Program is in making sure that all people everywhere have the opportunity to know our Lord Jesus. May our Lord richly bless you as you complete the activities in this book and as you grow in Him. Jim Austin Executive Director-Treasurer South Carolina Baptist Convention Page 2

4 what is a missionary? Missionaries are people who share stories about Jesus. They usually go to school to learn all about the Bible and how to minister to people. They can work with people in another country, another state, their own state or in a local church. what is the cooperative program? When we work together, we call this cooperation. The Cooperative Program is where people, churches and states work together to provide support for missionaries and ministries all over the world. It all starts in churches just like yours offerings and gifts given there help educate missionaries, pay for them to have a place to sleep and food to eat during their ministry, and have funds to minister. who can help? Every single person including you in every church is important to the Cooperative Program. When you make an offering to God, you are helping! You are important to God and the Cooperative Program. Draw your face below. Page 3

5 international missions International missionaries are people who go to countries other than their own to share stories about Jesus. They go to school and learn about the Bible and people. If they are going to a country where people do not speak English, they go to language school to learn to speak the language of the country where they are going. When the missionaries can speak that language, they will not need an interpreter. Money is provided to the missionaries through the Cooperative Program to buy food and pay for their house and plane trip. Southern Baptist missionaries serve all over the world. Young children of missionaries usually go with their parents. Sometimes the country does not have a college and the children come back to the United States to finish their education. Page 4

6 north american missions North American missionaries work in the United States and Canada. They teach those who do not know about Jesus. Some missionaries help feed the hungry and give them places to sleep. Full-time missionaries attend seminary, which is a school where they learn more about the Bible and missions. College students can also work in the summer as missionaries. Money from the Cooperative Program helps provide the theological education of missionaries and pastors. Your offering is very important to the Cooperative Program. It is used to help people and teach them about Jesus. Page 5

7 state missions The staff of the South Carolina Baptist Convention works much like missionaries to help the people in their own state. They assist church leaders with the work they do in your church. They work with the people in areas to start new churches. South Carolina Baptist Convention staff, as well as volunteers, serve in lots of ways all across South Carolina. They help people in need with their homes, counsel students, teach people skills for work, collect food for the hungry, and work with children in Vacation Bible School. They also support children s and youth camps, which is a great place for boys and girls to learn more about missions and Jesus. Ask your pastor or a worker at church how you can participate in these camps. Page 6
