Giving stays on same pace
JEFFERSON CITY—The last day of 2007 in Missouri Baptist Convention life is a reminder that giving through the Cooperative Program (CP) over the past 24 months has been basically flat.
Church services lost to ice storms in December will likely result in CP giving coming in between $16.2 and $16.3 million, according to MBC Controller Jay Hughes.
Giving to the Rheubin L. South Missouri Missions Offering (MMO) through Dec. 15 was about $691,000. Last year’s total offering was $733,800.
The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering through Dec. 15 stood at $3.1 million. Last year the offering was $3,245,000.
