Why OUR church gives to the Georgia Barnette State Missions Offering.
“… Participating in the state missions offering is fundamental to our mission strategy. Jesus, before His ascension declared ‘You shall be witnesses to me, in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth’ (Acts 1:8). We are to start where we are … that means evangelizing Louisiana.” – Steve Horn, First Baptist Church, Lafayette
“… because of your faithfulness, our people are now interested in missions and ministering to others. The faithfulness of Louisiana Baptists set the example for our people to be faithful in their own giving.” – Randy Boyett, Thompson Road Baptist Church, Slidell (Church plant constituted spring, 2010)
“Our church is concerned that every person in Louisiana has the opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. While we can’t personally maintain a presence in every area of our state, however, through our prayers and gifts to the state missions offering, we can have a part ….” – Neil Everett, First Baptist Church, Calhoun
“We give to the state missions offering because this offering helps with the mission’s efforts of our own association and church. Funds have assisted with the support of our Hispanic ministry, food ministries, and Beauregard CWJC. We are part of Louisiana missions through our state mission gifts. – Alan Knuckles, Pleasant Hill, DeRidder
“Many of the churches and missions around us in South Louisiana are able to share Christ because of the faithfulness of God’s people as they gave to the offering. We give to the state mission offering because we want to partner in taking the Gospel to our state, to be a blessing, and to be blessed as we seek to be faithful to our God.” – Waylon Bailey, First Baptist Church, Covington
Have a very special Lord’s Day!
