PSBC December Mission Emphasis: Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is an international missions offering that supports Southern Baptist missionaries as they share the gospel overseas. Well over 100 years ago, a single missionary named Lottie Moon, serving in China, began writing letters challenging the American church to send and support more workers to go there. In her time, Lottie was anything but an untouchable hero. In fact, she was like today's missionaries. She labored tirelessly so her people group could know Jesus. After her death on the field, her challenge was heeded in the formalization of an offering in her name. In 1918, the Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) named the annual Christmas offering for international missions after the woman who had urged them to start it.
For 172 years, Southern Baptist churches have sent missionaries to the unreached across the globe. Our collective work has built a foundational identity that has shaped IMB. This Christmas season, we continue that legacy by participating in the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. Together we financially support more than 4,000 Southern Baptist missionaries that share the gospel all over the world. Our collective giving enables missionaries to be sent to make disciples and multiply churches among unreached peoples and places for the glory of God. Prayerfully consider how you can participate this year. Bring your offering through December, or give online at www.psbcgreenville.org/giving and follow the links to our online giving portal.
Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
