The national Lottie Moon Christmas offering goal is $175,000,000. Our local goal as a church is $14,000. Let’s join with other churches across the nation to continue answering the call to give. Every dollar donated to the offering goes directly to help fund our missionaries who share the love of Jesus all over the world. By giving to the offering, each of us plays a key role in the work God is doing to expand His kingdom.
