Before Jesus ascended into heaven, he said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). We at the Village Church Hampden believe that one of the primary responsibilities of the church today is to preach the gospel around the world so that all may have the opportunity to follow Jesus.
One of the ways we do this is by contributing to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. Since 1845, the International Mission Board (IMB) has been partnering with churches to send thousands of missionaries to live and work among those around the world with little to no access to the gospel. Every year, 100% of the funds collected in the annual Lottie Moon Christmas Offering goes directly to these missionaries.
This year, throughout December, the Village Church Hampden is collecting Lottie Moon Christmas Offerings from our church, and at the end of the year, we will mail them in one lump sum to the IMB. You can contribute in one of the following ways.
- Give a special offering through Paypal to our church’s Lottie Moon Christmas Offering fund. Click the PayPal button below.
- Put cash or check in a designated Lottie Moon envelope in the sanctuary and drop it off in the offering box (this avoids the small PayPal fees).
- Give independently and directly to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering through the IMB website. Please note that giving through this method will not count toward our church’s total.
