A pastor who trades in his retirement plans to plant a new church in Hueytown. Families who use vacation time to participate in a mission project. College students who spend their spring break helping clean and repair hurricane-damaged homes.
Do you see the common thread? Alabama Baptists across the state are routinely setting aside personal agendas to be on mission with God.
But there’s another thread – these are three of eight stories we’ll celebrate together during the upcoming Week of Prayer for State Missions September 10-17. You’ll also meet a grandmother, daughter, and granddaughter who share a bond through their experience at WorldSong Missions Place 25 years apart; a Florida firefighter whose yard was cleaned up by Alabama Baptist disaster relief volunteers while he was out serving others in need; and a church whose decision to connect with a church planting family from southwest Alabama is realizing fruit in Montana.
In addition to participating in this time of concentrated prayer, your church also has the opportunity to give to the Myers-Mallory State Missions Offering, now in its second year. With a goal of $1,000,000, the offering will specifically support the strategic priorities of Alabama WMU, disaster relief, church planting, Alabama partnership missions and church revitalization.
Please consider including the Week of Prayer for State Missions on your church calendar either for the suggested dates of September 10-17 or whenever best fits your church’s schedule. Then give generously to the Myers-Mallory State Missions Offering, knowing that your gifts will impact eternity.
