The beginning of March kicked off the collection of the Annie Armstrong Offering. Clyde’s Chapel collects monetary offerings for this WMU Ministry. We usually consider this to be an Easter offering, so we are extending the offering period through Easter Sunday. If donating by check, please write “Annie Armstrong” on the memo line.
This year’s theme is “United” and the scripture verse is Romans 15:5-6, “Now may the God who gives endurance and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, according to Christ Jesus, so that you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ with one mind and one voice.”
Every dollar given goes to train and resource more than 2,200 missionaries and their families involved in church planting and compassion ministries who share the life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ across the United States and Canada (and their territories).
Who was Annie Armstrong?
The offering was started in 1895 by Woman’s Missionary Union® (WMU) to benefit the work of the Home Mission Board (now North American Mission Board). In 1934, it was named in honor of Annie Armstrong, a bold missions advocate and WMU’s first national executive leader. Today, more than $2 billion has been donated by Southern Baptist churches and individuals.
