2014 Week of Prayer for International Missions: November 30 – December 7
2014 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering Theme: “One Sacred Effort” and the Scripture is Matthew 28:19-20
2014 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering Goal: $175 Million
How to Order Posters, Prayer Guides, and Offering Envelopes:
In 2012, Georgia WMU and the Georgia Baptist Convention introduced a new online ordering process. Churches can now create a standing order that will lead to automatic shipments of materials for each offering season. Churches are invited to create or edit standing orders for all of their offering materials for Lottie Moon, Annie Armstrong, and Mission Georgia (State Missions). We will start shipping standing orders for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering in October.
DVD Media Kit and Additional Promotional Materials:
To assist you in promoting the Week of Prayer for International Missions and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, a Planning Guide with DVD-ROM will be mailed automatically to your church in August. The DVD-ROM will be addressed to the attention of the pastor.
