December 1-31

It’s a “Christmas Season thing” among Baptists to give to Global Missions, sharing the hope, peace, joy, and love of Christ with the world.

The CBF Offering for Global Missions goes to field personnel salaries, benefits and ministry expenses. This Offering is the primary way CBF field personnel are funded, making your gifts an essential part of spreading the Gospel and meeting physical needs in the world.

This year’s Offering goal is $6.1 million, and you are a vital part of reaching that goal and keeping field personnel in ministry.

Make a Christmas Offering online or with an envelope in pew racks of the Sanctuary.

Pray for Gennady & Mina Podgaisky in Kiev, Ukraine

The Podgaiskys form relationships with street children, assist in providing them with basic necessities, and help those who want to move off the streets. The Podgaiskys helped start the Village of Hope, a foster care facility operated by the Ukrainian Center for Christian Cooperation. The Podgaiskys hope the village will eventually hold up to 10 foster families and up to 100 children, as well as run Christian camps for at-risk children, retreats and conferences. They are aiding in decreasing the number of orphans on the streets of Kiev and helping many to find homes.

“When I feed the hungry, when I feed the children in the street, when I give clothes to the children, and give them medicine – it’s all in the name of Christ,” Mina Podgaiskaya said.
