COVID-19 SERVE Community Aid
South Carolina Baptists have long cooperated in sharing the hope of the Gospel, while also serving the needs of our local communities. The effects of COVID-19 have heightened the need for South Carolina Baptist Churches to come together, to both share and serve. The COVID-19 Serve Community Aid has been established to aid our churches in meeting the specific needs of their communities in meaningful ways.
The COVID-19 Serve Community Aid is making $250,000 available to help our churches respond to these service opportunities. This is why we cooperate! We truly believe we are better together. We also believe that Any Church, Any Size, Any Where can Advance in fulfilling the Great Commission!
Serve Community Challenge
South Carolinians will be receiving a government stimulus check in the coming days. Our challenge is that South Carolina Baptists would commit a portion of these resources, over and above their regular tithes and offerings, to make an impact in their community. What if we saw a wave of South Carolina Baptists “Advancing” into their communities with resources intended to make practical and gospel impact? We could easily double, triple or quadruple the resources that are being offered by the South Carolina Baptist Convention’s COVID-19 Serve Community Aid.
If you are willing to accept our “Serve Community Challenge,” we simply ask that the church name be provided as a means for recording those that have accepted the challenge. We will share the stories of how these Serve Community Challenge and COVID-19 Serve Community Aid dollars are impacting South Carolina communities. (Including an estimated dollar amount offers a wonderful testimony to those outside the SC Baptist family.)
Note: You are not required to apply for the COVID-19 Serve Community Aid to participate in the Serve Community Challenge.
