Mission Offerings to Give to:
- Annie Armstrong: North American Missions -- 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. As a tireless servant of God and a contagious advocate and supporter of missions efforts throughout the world, 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.
- Lottie Moon: International Missions -- She is the namesake of Southern Baptists' international missions offering and has become a legend. But in her time Lottie was anything but an untouchable hero. In fact, she was like today's missionaries. She labored tirelessly so her people group could know Jesus. Charlotte Digges "Lottie" Moon was a Southern Baptist missionary to China with the Foreign Mission Board who spent nearly 40 years living and working in China. "Why should we not...do something that will prove that we are really in earnest in claiming to be follower of Him who, though He was rich, for our sake became poor?" Lottie Moon, Sept. 15, 1887, Tungchow
- Mary Hill Davis: State Missions -- Mary Hill Davis believed Texas was a vast mission field, and that immigrants needed to know Jesus just as much as citizens. Each year, she spurred women to service, giving and prayer, leading to the establishment of State Missions Week in September, 1910. Remembering her remarkable leadership, in 1935 the offering for state missions was named the Mary Hill Davis Offering. Almost 100 years later, her example still inspires Texas Baptists to GIVE, to PRAY, and to GO.
