THIS WEEK AT CROSSROADS
THE LOTTIE MOON CHRISTMAS OFFERING FOR FOREIGN MISSIONS, December 16
What is the Lottie moon offering? In the 1800s, a missionary named Lottie Moon wrote letters from China urging American churches to fund more overseas workers. After Lottie’s death on the mission field, an offering was started in her name. The offering was established to empower international missions efforts for Southern Baptists. Because you give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, IMB missionaries can take the gospel to unreached peoples around the world. Every dollar you give makes a difference, because 100% of the money collected goes to the work of reaching every nation. Although December 16 is the focal day for the Lottie Moon offering at CBC, you can give your offering anytime this month. Please make checks payable to Crossroads and indicate Lottie Moon on the memo line.
