Each year, we honor the life and advocacy of Annie Walker Armstrong (1850-1938) when we give to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering ® for North American missions. Annie Armstrong led women to unite in missions endeavors that ultimately led to the formation of Woman’s Missionary Union, for which she served as the first corresponding secretary. Annie believed in and followed Christ with all her heart, but it was her hands that expressed that belief in tangible ways. She spent a great amount of time typing and handwriting letters in support of missions. Many of these letters were quite lengthy and all were filled with conviction that more could and should be done in our missions efforts. Annie also never hesitated to use her hands to reach out to hug a child or distribute food, clothing and the Word of God to those in need. Her hands held her own Bible as she studied to know how best to share Gods love with others. And, most important, Annie was a woman of prayer, folding her hands in prayer to intercede for the missionaries and for those they were helping discover Christ.
Lottie Moon, the namesake of the international missions offering, has become something of a legend to many of us. But in her time Lottie was anything but an untouchable hero. In fact, she was like today's missionaries. She was a hard-working, deep-loving Southern Baptist who labored tirelessly so her people group could know Jesus.
Every Christmas, we support the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering to support Southern Baptists who send missionaries from their churches, through IMB, to go into the world making disciples in the name of Jesus. In that partnership, Southern Baptists provide the funding to send and support these missionaries and their ministries. The more resources they provide, the more missionaries can be sent.
Each year, Samaritan's Purse delivers millions of gift-filled shoe boxes to boys and girls all over the world and Good Hope wants you to be a part. In addition to your shoe box, a gift to Operation Christmas Child helps cover processing and shipping expenses and allows our teams to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with children and their families.
February through October we will be collecting items for OCC shoeboxes in the lobby of the FLC. We will also accept monetary donations. Please bring empty shoeboxes to the FLC whenever you can. We will have announcements in the bulletin each month with a specific item. Contact Eva Lloyd with any questions 919-413-1497 firstname.lastname@example.org
