Annie Armstrong Offering
Each year around Easter, we support the North American Mission Board (NAMB) Annie Armstrong Easter Offering. Members should use the special offering envelope in their annual envelope box to designate their funds to the Annie Armstrong Offering. You may also use one of the special envelopes available at the church or simply write "Annie Armstrong" as the memo on your check.
As the NAMB website indicates:
"Annie’s father died soon after she was born in 1850. Her mother, a devoted Christian, encouraged her five children to see the needs around them and to act. With fervency, Annie devoted herself to compassion ministry. Annie and the women of her church joined with other churches in giving and missions work. Her boldness soon helped unite the missions movement begun in several states. In 1888, despite opposition by male Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) leadership, who feared women organizing, the national Woman’s Missionary Union® (WMU) was formed. Annie was elected as the first executive leader. Traveling throughout the U.S., Annie encouraged missionaries and challenged churches to give and support missions. She and the SBC women led out in transforming funding for missions helping to secure the Home Mission Board (now North American Mission Board) and Foreign Mission Board (now International Mission Board) in taking the gospel around the globe."
The Week of Prayer for North American Missions
(from the NAMB website)
The Week of Prayer is annually observed by SBC churches to specifically pray for missionaries on the field, the needs of their ministries and the needs of their families. Prayer is the fuel enabling God to spiritually and emotionally sustain missionaries in places where the gospel is greatly needed, but often opposed.
