Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

Fun and Fresh Fundraising Ideas for your Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

Great Multitude

The best Christmas gifts don’t always come wrapped in pretty paper and tied up with a matching bow on top.  Each December, Southern Baptists join together in one cooperative effort to raise money for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. This is an incredible gift for those missionaries serving around the world.  With 100% of funds raised going directly to the missionaries on the field, churches are looking for new ways to motivate their people to be a part of reaching the nations.  

Here are 7 fun and fresh ideas you may want to consider as you plan to promote and fundraise for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering:

Getting to Know Lottie

Let’s face it. You know who Lottie Moon is. You know what the offering is all about. You know why it is important to pray for our missionaries. But, you’re reading this because you want other people to have the same urgency about these things as you.

Giving to Missions

As the time for giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering  is on my mind, I have been thinking about how we teach preschoolers about giving to missions. In this world of online banking, direct deposit, debit and credit cards, how do we begin teaching preschoolers about financial giving?

Prayer and Giving Dovetail

My earliest Christmas memories revolve around church life. I remember spending hours practicing lines for Christmas pageants. All children were in the productions. I don’t recall it being optional. Afterward we would exchange gifts in our small country church.
