During the months of September and October, over 4,000 American Baptist International Ministries’ supporting churches are invited to rejoice in the great work God is doing in global missions. The highlight of this celebration in many churches is receiving a special offering for global missions, called The World Mission Offering (WMO). Many churches choose to do this on World Communion Sunday the first Sunday of October. However, giving to the WMO is gratefully accepted at any time during September and October and throughout the year.
There are changes in the way to obtain materials for the World Mission Offering. Please read more for details.
The World Mission Offering resource packet will contain fewer items. We want to ensure that your churches receive the quantity of materials that you need and want. This year, each church will receive one complete package of World Mission Offering resources. This allows each church to preview the materials and order just the items they want in the quantities they need—at no charge. The World Mission Offering (WMO) package is mailed out in August each year. Please help us and share this information so that the churches will request their additional materials early as shipping can take up to two weeks.
Churches will have four convenient options for placing orders for additional materials beginning about August 1:
1. Online at www.worldmissionoffering.org using the electronic order form.
2. Use the printed order form that your church will receives with your WMO materials.
4. Call 1-800-222-3872, ext. 2208 or 2182, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm EST and leave a message 24/7.
In the long run, we are confident that the efficiencies of this approach will not only reduce paper waste, but also make a larger impact in mission. Let's reach the world for Christ!
