Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions
Annually, at Christmas time, for the past 125 years, Southern Baptist Churches work together to raise funds for support of international missionaries serving around the world. This offering is known as the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering (LMCO), its namesake being Lottie Moon, a Southern Baptist missionary to China who inspired the first collection of gifts in 1888 so the world might know Christ. Then, as now, every penny given to Lottie Moon supports missionaries as they share the Gospel overseas.
Beginning in 2009, we moved our collection of the LMCO at North Wake Church to February to be a part of Entermissions, our annual missions conference. North Wakers may give to the offering at anytime of the year, if they’d like, and those moneys will be forwarded to the International Missions Board for use in supporting IMB missionaries on the field.
