RICHMOND, VA – Generous giving to the 2018 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® makes a massive difference in the world. Men, women, children, and entire communities are transformed as a result of this offering. Your gifts enable thousands of missionaries to live among, serve, and share the gospel with people who have never heard it until now. This year the goal has been set at $160 million.
Every December since 1888, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering has empowered Southern Baptist’s international missions work. At the beginning of this giving season, we start with a week of prayer dedicated to international missions, taking place December 2-9.
Through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, you and your church:
Support over 3,600 missionaries
Enable disciples to be made and churches to be multiplied around the world
Continue the SBC’s 173-year commitment to missions
Look for these stories and specific ways you can pray in this year’s Week of Prayer guide, as well as the accompanying videos.
