State Mission Offering
During the fall of each year, we emphasize the CBF/GA State Mission Offering.
Your gift to the 2019/20 CBF/GA State Mission Offering supports two specific areas of ministry in our state and world.
For a second year, part of the offering will be used to support Congregational Ministry Grants. These are matching grants from $1000 to $2000, used to support a new ministry or missional endeavor.
The four categories under which projects should fall to be eligible are:
- Community Partnerships
- Interfaith Initiatives
- Local Mission Engagement
- Young Leadership Development
In 2018/19, ten churches received Congregational Ministry Grants.
And Jesus said to the them: “Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation.” – Mark 16:15 (NRSV)
For 2019/20, CBF/GA is adding CBF field personnel support as part of the offering.
Half of the funds collected will go to support the mission and ministry of CBF field personnel with significant CBF/GA ties.
The field personnel identified for 2019/2020 are:
