The right place at the right time



FENTON, MI – “The Power of One: Multiplied” is challenging Michigan Baptists to think about their calling to reach their neighbors for Jesus, and how what they do can be multiplied. That is the theme for this year’s Frances Brown State Mission Offering and Week of Prayer.


The State Mission Offering is how Michigan Baptists give additional support to mission causes within our state. The goal for this year’s offering is $90,000. The gifts will be evenly divided between the areas of starting churches, strengthening churches, sending churches, and the Bambi Lake Conference Center.

The Week of Prayer for state missions is scheduled for September 9-16, 2018. During the week churches and Michigan Baptists will be encouraged to pray each day for church planters, missionaries, and different areas of ministry that are supported by the Baptist State Convention of Michigan (BSCM). Some of the ministry areas include Disaster Relief, Bambi Lake Camp, and church planting near a number of our state’s college campuses.

BSCM Executive Director-Treasurer, Dr. Tim Patterson says, “when you give to our Frances Brown State Mission Offering, we guarantee that it’s going to the right place at the right time. It’s going to places of ministry today because of what you did yesterday.”

Churches interested in promoting this year’s offering have a number of resources available to help. Go to www.bscm.org/smo. There are downloadable posters, flyers and bulletin inserts. This year there are also three videos including one video sharing the offering’s theme, another one about new church planting efforts, and finally, a video sharing a personal story about the impact of the Bambi Lake camp over the years.

You and I are being encouraged to prayerfully consider a sacrificial gift to this year’s state mission offering. Those gifts will allow our churches and individuals to see “the power of one, multiplied.”
