You hear a lot about the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions, but did you know that the Cooperative Program is another essential way to send and support missionaries? Here’s why:
The Lottie Moon offering funds more than half — 58 percent — of IMB’s total budget, and 100 percent goes to support the overseas budget. But your church’s regular giving through the Cooperative Program comprises more than 31 percent, almost a third, of IMB’s total budget. The majority of Cooperative Program dollars go toward sending and supporting missionaries serving around the world.*
*Cooperative Program gifts make up more than 31 percent of IMB’s 2015 budget. Almost 85 percent of IMB’s total budget sends and supports missionaries.
Give through the Cooperative Program via your local Southern Baptist church.
The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® is a registered trademark of WMU®. One hundred percent of the money you give to Lottie Moon sends and supports missionaries.
