Lottie Moon Christmas Offering - 2011

Calling all Southern Baptist!
Please give sacrificially to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering this year.
Sweeping changes have been made in the IMB in the last 3 years because of lack of funds. Some of those changes needed to made, other changes have sadly had to limit the sending of new missionaries to the field. When Jeff was pastoring, he would exhort our church family to give more to Lottie Moon than you spend on Christmas gifts. I know that many people were very surprised by this but really, which is more important - a life changed for Christ or a toy?

For the past few years, Nicholas has issued the same challenge to our church. I love giving so much more than I do receiving, so you can imagine this time of year is a joyous time for me! This year our church goal is $4500 (i think). I'm hoping as the years go by more and more members of our congregation will take up the challenge to give at least the same amount to Lottie Moon as they spend on gifts.
