Women On Mission - November 2022
Our International Mission study is Wednesday, December 7th at 12:00 pm in the fellowship hall, led by Pastor Bryan Gotcher. We will learn that the Philippines is both a missions field and a missions force. Our IMB Missionaries serve alongside Philippine churches and in unreached areas of the island nation while also mobilizing, training, and
sending out Filipino missionaries to places westerners cannot go.
The Philippines is an archipelago of 7,107 islands. It stretches from the south of China to the northern tip of Borneo. The country has over a hundred ethnic groups. Some of the islands have familiar names to some of us because of World War II, such as Manila, Luzon, Mindanao, Bataan, and Corregidor. The Philippines were liberated by the Allies at the end of the war.
As we approach the end of this calendar year, I wanted to remind our members, as well as inform the newer ones about our World Mission Club. This is an opportunity to give to missions on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis. This is collected throughout the year and distributed at the end of the year, as follows:
Lottie Moon Christmas Offering 51.6%
Annie Armstrong Easter Offering 19.6%
Life Change Central (Oakhill Ministries) 10.0%
State Missions Offering 10.0%
State Camp Offering 8.8%
Our Goal for 2022 is $40,000
If you are not currently giving in this systematic way, please consider doing so in 2023. Boxed envelopes are provided by the church. You can designate World Missions Offering on your envelope (this is over and above our tithes). In addition, a special offering is taken for Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and Annie Armstrong Easter Offering which is added to the club receipts at the end of the year. World Hunger Offering is a separate offering taken in the summer.
The Evansville Rescue Mission has asked us to collect green beans for their Gobbler Gathering Thanksgiving Baskets. Our goal is 500 cans! Deadline is Sunday, November 6th.
Women on Mission will meet Thursday, November 3rd at 1:00 pm in the Grace classroom across from the Fellowship Hall. All ladies are invited to attend.
