Dear Church Family,
We are two months into 2018. We have been doing a good job of making our faith tangible. We’ve filled our food pantry and we’ve collected hundreds of dollars of Subway Gift Cards. Now it’s time for our next Tangible Project of the Month. Our Tangible Project for the month of March is to give to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. We are a very mission minded church and giving to this offering will help get the gospel to those in North America! Here is some information about this offering.
What is the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering?
The offering was started in 1895 by Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) to benefit the work of the Home Mission Board (now North American Mission Board). In 1934, it was named in honor of Annie Armstrong, a bold missions advocate and WMU’s first national executive leader. Today, more than $1 billion has been donated by Southern Baptist churches and individuals.
How are the gifts used?
Every dollar given goes to train and resource more than 5,000 missionaries involved in church planting and compassion ministries who share the life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ across the United States, Canada and their territories. For more information visit namb.net/annualreport.
What is our Church’s goal?
Our goal for this offering is $2,500 and I believe we can reach it! You are a generous people and if each of us contributes then I am confident that we will reach our goal. We can do much more together than we can do individually. Combining our money with other like-minded churches for the purpose of fulfilling the Great Commission is one of the great strengths of being a Southern Baptist Church. Let’s continue to make our faith tangible in the month of March and reach our goal!
