Each December, Southern Baptist puts emphasis on the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. This offering helps support the work of the 5,000 missionaries we have around the world. The theme of the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering this year is "Are We There Yet?" The National Goal is $175 million. Our church goal is $4,000. So far, we have received $1,867.
I would like to challenge each of you to make a contribution to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering before the month of December is over. A church our size should make the effort to give $4,000 to support international missions. Several of our youth have gone on short term missions trip over seas. (Jamaica, Haiti, Peru, South Africa, China) We have join together with the Missionaries on the field and during the Christmas season let's support our missionaries on the field of service.
