There are three areas where you may give to support 3BC's Ministries:

Ministry Action Plan (MAP)

The MAP is the operations budget for 3BC. It supports the ongoing ministries of the church, provides funding that compensates the ministerial and support staff, funds the general operations and upkeep of the church's facilities, and helps support ministries of our association, state, and national conventions.

World Missions Offering

The World Missions Offering is 3BC's method of giving to missions year round. Every dollar given to the World Mission Offering goes to support missions.

The monies given are divided in the following percentages: 

35% International Mission Board (Lottie Moon) 

20% North American Mission Board (Annie Armstrong) 

13% Tennessee Baptist Missions (Golden State Missions) 

5% Tennessee Baptist Children's Home (Mother's Day Offering)

2% Tennessee Baptist Adult Home (Father's Day Offering)

25% 3BC Missions Projects

3BC Annual Fund

The 3BC Annual Fund is how we pay off our indebtedness. You can give to the annual fund throughout the year.

A letter from our stewardship committee

During these unsettling times, I want to encourage you to remain steadfast in your faith. We serve a mighty, faithful, and loving God who is always in control. 

The efforts to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus may result in many of us facing personal economic hardship. Likewise, our church’s ministry may also be impacted because we may not be present to give our tithes and offerings in person. As the Chairman of the Stewardship Committee, I want to remind everyone of the opportunities we have to continue to be faithful and obedient by taking advantage of alternative ways to give—you can give online, mail a check, or drop off an envelope at the office. Many of our church’s financial commitments remain, therefore your continued faithful giving is important. 

3BC has demonstrated numerous times that we are a generous and caring church. I do not doubt this will continue to be the case during the difficult weeks ahead. On behalf of the entire Stewardship Committee, I want to express how thankful we are to be part of a church committed to giving of their tithes and offerings.

We look forward to the days ahead when this situation is past us, and we can look back to see how God used this for His glory.

To God be the glory,

Matt Vance, Stewardship Committee Chairman
