JEFFERSON CITY – Easter is fast approaching, and that means is it time for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering to support the efforts of the North American Mission Board (NAMB). Missouri Baptists have set a goal for the 2013 offering of $1.75 million. The nation-wide goal is $70 million for ministry across the country, including in Missouri.
“While Cooperative Program is the backbone for Missouri Baptists reaching this nation, the Annie Armstrong offering provides resources for evangelism and church planting projects,” John Yeats, Missouri Baptist Convention (MBC) Executive Director said.
When people give to the offering, 100 percent of their gift will be transformed into missionary salaries and ministry supplies. Those missionaries and supplies will help others hear the message of Christ and respond in faith to His offer of salvation. Behind each penny given, there is a Southern Baptist who believes in what they do and are affirming the need to equip them to share the gospel with those who need a Savior.
The planning guide is automatically sent to each Southern Baptist church office in early January. The planning guide offers information, planning tips, and a DVD-ROM. If your church has not received a copy, call the MBC’s Sharon Paris at 1 800 736-6227.
