Mission Offerings

Texas Mission Offering
Most churches celebrate Texas missions by praying for and giving to state missions during the fall season. One way to reach out to the lost peoples of Texas and beyond is through the Week of Prayer for Texas Missions and the Mary Hill Davis Offering. This offering is dedicated to Texas missions.

North American Mission Offering
Each year, we honor the life and work of Annie Walker Armstrong (1850-1938) when we give to the annual Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American missions. As a tireless servant of God and a contagious advocate and supporter of mission efforts throughout the world, Annie rallied churches to give more, pray more, and do more for reaching people for Christ.

International Mission Offering

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering supports missionaries as they share the Gospel overseas. This offering is for the sole purpose of supporting international missions. Every penny of the offering goes to the International Mission Board’s overseas budget.
