State Mission Offering

 

During the fall of each year, we emphasize the CBF/GA State Mission Offering.

Your gift to the 2020/21 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 2020/21, two churches received congregational ministry grants.

 

“If there is among you anyone in need, … do not be hard-hearted or tight-fisted toward your needy neighbor. You should rather open your hand, willingly lending enough to meet the need, whatever it may be.” – Deuteronomy 15:7-8

 

For 2020/21, 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 2020/2021 are:
