PRAYERFULLY CONSIDER GIVING TO THE ANNIE ARMSTRONG EASTER OFFERING

During the springtime, Southern Baptists across the United States come together to give financial resources to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering (www.anniearmstrong.com).  The purpose of this offering is to assist the North American Mission Board (namb.org) in ministering to people in North America who do not know Jesus Christ as their Savior. Please prayerfully seek God’s will in giving to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering.  It is important to know that 100% of this offering will go toward supporting mission salaries and projects of the NAMB.  FBC’s goal for 2014 is $15,000.00. To contribute to this fund, write your check to “First Baptist Church” and list Annie Armstrong in the memo line.
