It's not just an announcement

Pastor, your church family can tell when you are passionate about something. They know if you are just making an announcement or if you are really excited about an event or a special offering. They respond accordingly.
 
I hope this past Sunday was a big kickoff Sunday in your church – not NFL kickoff – North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO) kickoff. And, I hope your congregation heard their pastor speak with enthusiasm about the importance of this offering.
 
If they only heard an announcement, they could have missed the strong value of this offering. Most Baptists know that the Lottie Moon and Annie Armstrong offerings are important. But do they know about the NCMO?
 
The disaster relief arm of Southern Baptists has become one of our most positive public “branding” identities. In other words, we are known to the public and frequently judged by the public because of the great work of our disaster relief teams. This is a good thing! We do biblical ministry, reach people with the gospel and produce a positive public image through disaster relief.
 
Baptists are faithful to give generously when a disaster strikes, and we need to give now so we will be ready for the next disaster. That’s why the NCMO is extremely important. The largest portion of this offering supports N.C. Baptist Men and provides the resources for trained teams to prepare for ministry in times of trouble.
 
Encourage your church to give generously this month to NCMO.
