The Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering (RMMO) originated in the mid-1930s, when American Baptist congregations received a Communion Fellowship Offering on the first Sunday of each month to support retired ministers, missionaries, their widowed spouses and elderly clergy within their churches. In 1977, American Baptist Churches USA launched RMMO to continue this appreciation of God’s service.
We'll also collect a Christmas Offering which will be used to offset the shortfall in our General Fund. Earlier this year we collected more than $20,000 for our Benevolence Fund! The Lord has worked through the generosity of his people and that large fund has allowed us to help families in need in our church and neighborhood and will allow us to continue to help as needed for months to come. Our area of greatest need currently is to simply catch up the General Fund, which allows us to do our day to day ministry.
Please consider giving to these special offerings this holiday season!
