2010 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering Goal Announced

Posted by Rick on November 4, 2010

The International Mission Board has announced that the 2010 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering Goal is $175 million!  Our church goal is $1000.00.

The 2010 theme is “Are We There Yet?

The following is taken directly from the IMB website:

Are we there yet?

When it comes to reaching a lost world for Christ, some may wonder how far we’ve come and how much farther to go.

Today, we can identify the people groups that remain untouched by the Gospel. For the first time, it is conceivable that all people groups can be reached in the coming years with a Gospel presence. According to IMB’s 2009 statistical data* there were 506,019 baptisms, 204,192 churches. Church membership overseas was at 10.7 million, and there were 24,650 new churches.

Yes, there is still a long way to go, but progress is being made every day.

Now is the time to also take a fresh look at the challenges ahead and be ready to finish the task. With 45,560 churches in the Southern Baptist Convention, there is much work to be done.

Here’s a global snapshot of the work ahead of us:

* 4,743 people groups are not engaged at all with the Gospel

* 6,426 unreached people groups (those with less than 2 percent of people who profess to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ)

* 1.7 billion with little or no access to the Gospel

* 1.5 billion Muslims – 22 percent of the world’s population

* 950 million Hindus in the world

* Christian witness among China cities less than 1 percent

* 3 percent evangelical believers among Ethiopia’s 82 million people

* 355 million in South America do not know Christ

* Less than 1 percent Christian among more than 270 million living in the Central Asia region

* 650,000 Lezghi in the Causcasus Mountains fear evil spirits

* 97 percent of all Palestinians are Muslim

* 89 percent of North African and Middle Eastern people groups are unreached

* 311 people groups in India have no known evangelical believers

* Only 1,600 believers among 1.6 million Muong of Northern Vietnam

 

A little overwhelming isn’t it?

he task is doable, but it will take all of us – our churches, our missionaries, our national partners, our Great Commission partners.

Are we there yet? Not quite. But we’re on our way.

Bits & Bytes

Posted by Rick on December 7, 2009

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “Silent Night, Holy Night” based on 2 Corinthians 8:9 for the second Sunday of Advent:

  • It was a huge sacrifice for Jesus to come to Earth.
  • It was a sacrifice for all who would believe.
  • It was a willing sacrifice.
  • We should bow before Jesus as Lord now willingly, before we will be forced to after we die.

You can listen to the sermon here or by clicking on the audio player below:

You can also listen to Sunday evening’s message, “Who’s Missing? Whose Mission?” based on Romans 10:13-15 which is the theme for the 2009 IMB Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, here or by clicking on the audio player below:

Mission Quote of the Week

Posted by Rick on December 2, 2008

Since we are in  “Lottie Moon Christmas Offering” season and since it was annouced yesterday that we are officially in a recession, I thought I’d give this quote as it relates to charitable giving.  Use it to guide your missions giving:

I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare. In other words, if our expenditure on comforts, luxuries, amusement, etc., is up to the standard common among those with the same income as our own, we are probably giving away too little. If our giving does not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say it is too small. There ought to be things we should like to do and cannot because our commitment to giving excludes them.   – C.S. Lewis

Edna McMillan Offering Report

Posted by Rick on September 30, 2008

I am happy to announce that we surpassed our goal of $500 for the Edna McMillan Offering for State Missions.  Our final tally is $562.00.

Now, we need to start considering what we will give to the Lottie Moon Offering for International Missions.  That offering will start in December.  Go ahead.  Pray about what you should give.  Start saving a little bit now.  Together, we can make a difference!

Lottie Moon Update

Posted by Rick on December 17, 2007

We have now collected $635.00 towards our church goal of $750.00!

Remember that all money collected goes to directly support International Mission Board missionaries overseas. That’s 100%! None of it stays here in the US. The US goal is $165,000,000.00 this year!

Help fulfill your part in the Great Commission by giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering!
