Thanks, Missouri Baptists! Your generous gifts to state missions surpassed the goal on November 8. Don’t stop now. Your offerings support more than two dozen mission projects and ministries across the Show Me State.
Dear Church Leader,
Did you know Baptist Homes & Healthcare Ministries provide scholarships to address the nursing crisis at Missouri’s long-term care facilities? That Hannibal-LaGrange University offers a four-year biblical studies degree to inmates at the Jefferson City Correctional Center? That WMU is imparting a passion for missions in every generation of Missouri Baptist women? And that today, on nearly 30 campuses across our state, MBC Collegiate missionaries are sharing the gospel and modeling what it means to be a follower of Jesus?
All this – and much more – is possible only because your church members give faithfully to the Rheubin L. South Missouri Missions Offering (MMO). Our annual state missions offering supports more than two dozen ministries. These include Christian foster care, disaster relief, church revitalization, and other projects that help transform lives and communities with the gospel.
The theme of this year’s offering is taken from Romans 10:15, where Paul declares: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.” How beautiful indeed!
What a privilege we have to take the gospel to those in our state who so desperately need to hear it. Last year, 679 Missouri Baptist churches supported MMO and gave an all-time record amount. We’re asking the Lord for even more MBC churches to catch the vision of what a state missions offering can contribute to His work in our communities.
If your church hasn’t been receiving an MMO offering, please review the resources in this promotional packet and bless your people with an opportunity to give willingly to the Lord’s work across our state.
All materials in this packet are provided free of charge – whether you download or order them from the MBC. Our goal this year is $750,000, and our Week of Prayer is September 10-17. You can make a difference. We are trusting God to provide – and to receive the glory as a result of your church’s gift of support through MMO.
