Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for December

December 1, 2022 - December 28, 2022 | 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Clyde’s Chapel is collecting monetary donations during the month of December for this WMU Ministry. One hundred percent of donations given through the Lottie Moon Offering goes entirely to the missionaries, none to administration. Please give sacrificially.

Why the Christmas Offering is named for Lottie Moon?

While living in China, Lottie wrote letters to the Foreign Mission Board (now the International Mission Board) and to Baptist women. She asked for more missionaries and for money to grow her work among the Chinese.

Because of Lottie’s determination, WMU collected a Christmas Offering to give to the Foreign Mission Board. In 1918, at Annie Armstrong’s suggestion, WMU named the offering for Lottie Moon, in honor of her work and sacrifice to keep our missionaries on the field.
