Get Creative for Annie Armstrong

Looking for some great ideas for how to promote the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions? There are tons of ways to promote missions, and missions offering seasons are great times to get creative. Here are 3 ideas to incorporate into your plan:

  1. Do a FaceTime or Skype call with a North American missionary. If he or she is not available during your meeting time, consider asking the missionary to send you a video.
  2. Host a special prayer meeting for the offering. Use the time to talk about specific needs across the United States and missionaries serving in cities and to pray for specific people and needs.
  3. Invite a church member who has been on a domestic missions trip to share about his or her experience serving in a missional context. 

Pray and help create a plan that will increase your group’s heart for missions and, in turn, missional giving.

Learning about Missions

Long ago, Annie Armstrong spoke of the importance of study of the missions field. What the first corresponding secretary of WMU called “study of the mission field” we would now say, “learning about missions.” She identified this as the driving force between studying God’s Word and how much we pray and give. During this month of the North American Missions Emphasis, it is good for us to consider Annie Armstrong’s insights as we encourage preschoolers to pray for and give to missions. They first need to learn about missions before they can then pray and give.
