If you’ve attended Foothills for more than 12 months, this is not the first time you’ve heard the phrase “Lottie Moon.” But you may not know that it isn’t actually a phrase, but rather, a name.
Lottie Moon is the namesake of the international missions offering that Foothills participates in every Christmas with Southern Baptist’s across the world. Lottie was just like today’s missionaries, laboring tirelessly so that people without access to the Gospel could come to know Jesus.
This is the first time you will hear about Lottie Moon this year but it will not be the last. We are using the next several months to intentionally impact the lives of those in our community and around the world.
As one who calls Foothills your church home, you will be challenged to contribute spiritually, financially and physically to the very same work Lottie dedicated her life to. We could not be more excited to see what God does through all of us this Christmas season.
Our Goal for 2017 = $50,000
What the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering accomplishes is providing direct funding for those who are going to do the physical work of delivering the gift of who Jesus is to people who do not yet know him.
There are opportunities to physically do the work of Jesus and there are opportunities to fund the work of Jesus. The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is our way to fund the work of Jesus.
The challenge is clear and over the coming weeks we will continue to show you the work that is being accomplished through this amazing initiative and you are invited to continue the work of Lottie Moon.
