In the June/July 2016 issue of Fellowship Magazine, Smoke Rise Baptist Church is highlighted as a “Generous Church” that makes possible the work of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. The article reads:
Churches are at the heart of CBF life, and their support allows us to be the loving presence of Christ around the world. Church support through budgetary gifts, annual and special offerings, events and other creative channels extends the work of church far beyond local communities….
We want to publicly acknowledge and show our deep gratitude to the churches across our Fellowship who so generously give to be the light of Christ in many tangible and impactful ways…
In the article, Smoke Rise is noted as one of the top 100 giving churches. We are grateful for our partnership with the CBF. We are honored to have many CBF national staffers as members of our congregation. We are eager to see what God will do through our generous gifts to touch and transform lives around the world.
