Used Literature Ministry
Donate, Categorize, Finance
Deliver to Spartanburg Baptist Network
The Spartanburg County Baptist Network collects used literature to share with Christians all over the world! We will take Sunday school, discipleship, Bible studies, Bibles, and devotionals. Please DO NOT send mission magazines, Home Life, etc. These are not collected for overseas use.
Enlist volunteers in your church to help collect the materials, sort & box by age group or type of material and deliver to the Baptist Network. We carry these materials quarterly to a collection point in North Carolina. Help the Baptist Network with the travel expense by taking up an offering for the Literature Ministry. Please take a minute to view the powerpoint link to see how your involvement can make a difference all over the world!
