December Offering: Retired Ministers & Missionaries (12/14/16)

Our special offering for December is the Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering. This year the theme is Faith through Gratitude. Through the simple act of giving, we are called to be faithful servants of the gospel and to live out the ministry of Jesus in word and deed. The gratitude that we have for Jesus’ gift to us is the seed from which springs the gratitude that manifests toward the people of God, and reminds ministers, missionaries, and widowed spouses who served so faithfully that they are remembered with love and gratitude. The offering supports those who have dedicated their lives to God’s service by providing emergency assistance in times of need, and a thank you check at the end of each year. It is hoped that RMMO can continue to serve as a joyous tradition for ABC congregations, and that you will be greatly enriched this season by Faith through Gratitude.

We have received $625 toward our goal of $750.

December Mission Offering: Retired Ministers & Missionaries

The roots of the Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering go back to the mid-1930’s, when American Baptist congregations received a Communion Fellowship Offering on the first Sunday of each month to support retired ministers, missionaries, their widowed spouses and elderly clergy within the churches. In 1977 American Baptist Churches USA launched the Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering (RMMO) to continue this time-honored tradition of expressing thankfulness.

This year the theme is Faith through Gratitude. Through our faith in God and our gratitude for the saving grace and actions of Jesus Christ, we are called to be faithful servants of the gospel and to live out the ministry of Jesus in word and deed. The gratitude that we have for Jesus’ gift to us is the seed from which springs the gratitude that manifests itself toward the people of God.

The offering supports those who have dedicated their lives to God’s service by providing emergency assistance in times of need and a thank-you check at the end of each year. We hope that RMMO will continue to serve as a joyous tradition for ABC congregations and that you will continue to honor God’s committed servants.

Our goal this year is $750.
