BSCM State Mission Offering; punching back against decline
PLYMOUTH – The Frances Brown State Mission Offering and Week of Prayer will be September 10-17. The goal for this year’s offering is $80,000. Gifts will be used to assist Michigan pastors, church leadership, and churches with revitalization.
Every year Michigan Baptists set aside a week to specifically pray for the spiritual needs of our state. To participate in the Week of Prayer, you can download a prayer guide and other free resources at bscm.org/smo.
Some of the prayer emphasis for this year will include; praying for pastors and leaders, praying for local Michigan communities, praying for Michigan churches that are struggling, and praying for our Michigan language churches.
Studies show that 80% of American churches are in decline or plateaued, and that includes Michigan churches. That’s why this year’s offering will be used to provide tools and guidance to churches that need to revitalize the mission to their community.
The Frances Brown State Mission Offering is an annual offering taken by Michigan Baptist churches to fund special mission projects for starting and strengthening churches within the state of Michigan.
