Thank Offering Video #1: How to Promote the Thank Offering
The OPC is pleased to announce that a number of videos are being made available this year to help our local churches promote the annual Thank Offering!
In our first video, Rev. Mark Brown, Pastor of Westminster OPC in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, shares some tips and tools for promoting the Thank Offering, such as:
- Praying for our missionaries weekly from the pulpit throughout the year
- Designating a Missions Month in which to focus on the Thank Offering
- Holding an annual banquet to kick off the Thank Offering season
- Inviting missionaries or the Foreign Missions Committee staff to speak
- Utilizing colorful, seasonal envelopes to collect the Thank Offering
- Setting giving goals for the Thank Offering and including updates in the church's weekly budget report
- and more ...
We hope you will find this video useful, and even share it with your session and missions committee. Consider how you might take some of these ideas and apply them in your local context, to encourage your congregation to participate in the whole work of the whole church.
