International Mission Emphasis & Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
December 2 - December 9
The Lottie Moon International Missions Offering is named after Lottie Moon a missionary to China and a legend to the International Mission Board. Lottie was a hard-working, deep-loving Southern Baptist who labored tirelessly so her people group could know Jesus. She wrote numerous letters home, urging Southern Baptists to greater missions involvement and support. One of those letters triggered Southern Baptists’ first Christmas offering for international missions – enough to send three new missionaries to China. Starting in 1888, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering was established to empower the international missions efforts for Southern Baptists. After more than a century, the annual offering coninues its steady growth. Your giving enables missisonaries to be sent to make disciples and multiply churches among unreached peoples and places for the glory of God.
