At Grand, we believe that we can change the world! One of the ways that we do that is by partnering with the more than 45,000 other Southern Baptist churches each Christmas to take up an offering for world missions. The money raised goes 100% to supporting our missionaries on the field through the International Mission Board (IMB).
Most people don’t realize the impact of the IMB. We have almost 5000 missionaries scattered throughout the world reaching the most critically unreached people groups for Jesus Christ. This represents the largest single mission force in the history of the world, and it only continues to expand in influence. It has a single-minded focus to get the gospel to the ones who have never heard so that our generation might be the generation to complete the Great Commission.
When you give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, though, you are not just giving to a big institution. You are giving to Adam and Jess and their three kids allowing them to live in the jungles of Peru to try and reach tribes that have never even been contacted. You are giving to Andy and Michelle as they work to reach the Portuguese for Christ. You are giving to Michael and Deborah as they reach out to a huge, unreached people group in Southeast Asia. These are all partners of our church who we have grown to love, and this offering allows them the opportunity to continue in their work.
Will you prayerfully consider giving to this worthy cause? We will be taking up our offering on Sunday morning, December 17.
