52 Sundays resource now available

January 6, 2020

Cooperation in missions and ministry is what binds us together as Baptists across North Carolina. We’ve developed a resource for you and your church to raise awareness of all the ways that churches are ministering and sharing the gospel across the state, nation and world through the Cooperative Program.

52 Sundays provides a way for churches to unite in weekly prayer for different missionaries and ministries serving around the world, throughout North America and across North Carolina.

52 Sundays connects you and your church with names and faces of missionaries and ministries you can support through prayer and sacrificial giving to missions through the Cooperative Program.

We hope that this resource can put a “face” with those missionaries and ministries that are sharing Christ and providing hope and healing to a lost world. Every Sunday, your church can say the people you learn about through 52 Sundays are “your” missionaries because you support them through the Cooperative Program.

As a new feature for this year’s resource, we’ve included some of the N.C. Baptist ministries that are supported through the Cooperative Program. For example, we’ve included a week devoted to the Baptist Children’s Homes of N.C. We’re also lifting up Caleb Sprinkle, a trainer with DiscipleNC who leads churches in how to have Gospel Conversations. We hope that you’ll take time during your church’s gatherings to learn and pray for all that God is doing here in North Carolina.

The 52 Sundays material may be accessed through our resources page each month or downloaded directly by visiting ncbaptist.org/52sundays. Resources include:

  • PowerPoint slides (16x9 and 4x3) for use in church services that include information on 52 different international, North American or North Carolina missionaries and ministries your church supports through the Cooperative Program. Each week has an accompanying file which can be used with prayer leaders or small groups.
  • Prayer points for each missionary.
  • Bulletin inserts to print for each Sunday.

If you need these resources in another format, contact Will Taylor at [email protected] or call (800) 395-5102, ext. 5517.

The 52 Sundays resource is produced by the Southern Baptist Stewardship Development Association (SDA) in cooperation with the SBC Executive Committee, the International Mission Board (IMB), the North American Mission Board (NAMB) and the 42 state Baptist conventions.

“Honor your father and mother — which is the first commandment with a promise — so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth” (Ephesians 6:2-3). Trying not to become frustrated at the sluggish traffic, I turned up the volume on my radio. There must...

NC Baptists provide dental care to remote island of Ocracoke

It started with a hunting trip. A young man went hunting in Ocracoke a few years ago, and while there he learned there was no dentist on the island. So he told his father, who volunteered as a driver for Baptists on Mission’s (BOM) dental bus. Last month, a team of volunteer...
