Making a difference

by Sue Hodnett

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI – Michigan Baptist have always been relentless in their support to the Frances Brown State Mission Offerings over the years. The 2020 state mission offering validated the sacrificial giving and faithfulness of our churches by taking the offering to an even greater level. Some of the same pastors who over the years faithfully encouraged their churches to contribute to the state mission offering became the receivers of the donations. For so many pastors and their families the global pandemic made for financial hardship for so many pastors and their families.

But…in the faithful custom of Michigan Baptists when approached with a need, provisions are shared at an overwhelming capacity. Your giving and prayers are making a difference for the families of our pastors!

Watch this video to see just a few of the thank you statements.

The 2021 Frances Brown State Mission Offering and Week of Prayer for State Missions is

September 12th – 19th. This year's offering will be for the Pastors & Churches Relief Fund that will be used to help Michigan churches. We have some churches and pastors that have been struggling financially since the pandemic shutdown. This year's gifts will help pastors and churches that need help getting back on their feet so they can continue to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their communities.

Our offering goal for this year is $70,000. Will you help us reach it?

Will you join us as we continue, “Making a Difference”?
