OFFERING GOAL: $1,500,000
WEEK OF PRAYER: NOVEMBER 16 - 23
SCRIPTURE: "Let the REDEEMED of the Lord say so..." - Psalm 107:2
“I didn’t know a lot about hope when I was 10 years old. I didn’t have any hope. I didn’t know what hope was.” - Joe Knight
“I was angry and hurting. I needed someone to love me.” - Paulina Burch.
“There was a day where it didn’t matter to me anymore whether I lived or died. I was done.” - Travis Martin
“We didn’t know if we would be able to eat. We had to sleep outside. We were beaten for anything we did wrong.” - Roberta Brunck
These were the stories of Joe, Paulina, Travis and Roberta. But their storylines have changed because of the Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH) ministry and the faithful support of Baptists. Today, each has an amazing story of redemption to share. The bleak destination of their lives has been altered. Futures that were once dragged into the darkness are now saturated with the light of hope and the love of Christ.
When your church participates in the Annual Offering, hope is shared and miracles happen. You help provide North Carolina children a home that is as caring as any family's Children are given regular meals, clean clothes, and loving houseparents to care for their needs. Most importantly, you are helping us share with them the hope of Jesus Christ.
The theme for the 2014 Annual Offering is Redeemed. The annual offering is vital to changing lives! Without Baptists' support of the offering we would be unable to provide ministry and care to children.
While our official Week of Prayer is in November your church can participate in the offering any time.
