"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
- 2 Corinthians 9:7
Giving at Hermitage
100% of the tithes and offerings received at Hermitage Baptist Church go toward leading families here and around the world to passionately follow Christ.
9% of our undesignated offering each week supports the missions and ministry of the South Carolina Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention, through what we call the Cooperative Program. It helps us as a church support almost 4,000 missionaries all across the world as well as serving the widows and orphans of our own community.
2% of our undesignated offerings support the collective ministry of the Kershaw Baptist Association, of which almost 50 churches in our county seek to work together to reach our own local community.
1% of our undesignated offerings support church planting directly. We are currently in partnership with two church plants in Metro NYC and have sent several missions teams to take the gospel to most populated city in the United States where 1% would claim to have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.
For a breakdown of how your giving supports our own missions and ministry please feel free to download our current ministry budget plan.
In 2013 our church went on a spiritual journey called Reveal God’s Plan. During this emphasis we sincerely sought the Lord concerning our future building and ministry needs and determined how we were going to give and fund that plan. 100% of the giving received to Reveal God’s Plan goes toward the construction of our Family Life Center slated to be completed in the first half of 2016.
We would be happy to talk with you regarding large gifts, memorials, planned giving, or gifts in-kind like stocks, bonds, or property.
