I was impressed with the Your Gifts at Work booklet. It is a concise information source, especially for those unfamiliar with the Lottie Moon Offering. We are using it for a bulletin insert. Please consider doing something similar next year and making it slightly smaller for an insert.
Together we’re able to do so much more than if we chase this vision alone.
From supporting missionaries to serving those in need, this booklet shows you all the ways your giving multiplies impact throughout the world.
Size: 8½”w x 5½”l, 12 pages
It is great telling the numbers and the costs of items used in the field. The reporting and accountability helps encourage my members to give. If you could add some specific ways the items in the book are used, it might help the giver understand more fully the use. I shared how LMCO funds helped a missionary in Madagascar host training in the bush by feeding and lodging pastors in a "hotel". Feedback: We appreciate the feedback!
As we never have the time to fully share the burden and passion of our missionaries, anything supplemental that we can get in front of our churches helps us establish the recurring theme of missional living! First church year as a WMU Director and I find all of the materials to be extremely beneficial in our messaging!
Too often, we have struggled to share the broad impact of what the IMB does. I have long felt that many other parachurch groups have done a better job. Consequently, many of our people have given larger support to those than our own IMB. This piece helps communicate the impact of IMB in a tangible way. Through the total numbers and pictures, we give our people a chance to see what their gifts do.
Good info on Lottie Moon offering
Excellent info to reveal the breakdown and details of how each person's gifts really count
This booklet explains in very clear detail what people's gifts to the Lottie Moon Christmas offering will be used for. We are making these booklets available to everyone who wants to know more about the Lottie Moon Christmas offering.
We were hoping to place it in the bulletin as an insert but it was just a little too big. Loved the information it provided, it would have been nice if it was just a bit smaller to fit a bulletin but still found the info helpful. Feedback: Hi there Susan! We appreciate your comments. We apologize that this item did not meet your exact needs, but are glad to hear that you found it useful. If you are still interested in a bulletin insert, you can purchase those through Lifeway here: https://www.lifeway.com/en/product/sbc-emphasis-bulletin-12-02-18-P005075244-2018-12-02
It's nice having something to put in people's hands that explains where their contributions and gifts are used. Brings a better understanding to what can be accomplished when people give.
I used to take HOURS putting together info on how Lottie Moon funds are spent as a poster. The Gifts at Work handout is a huge time saver, and people can take it home and pray over their contribution. Love it.
I used the various dollar amounts in the brochure to help us set our Lottie Moon goal. We will give one to every person in attendance when we begin our Lottie Moon offering.
Informing our churches of what their offerings can and are doing is very essential. The more our people in our churches know about what is going on, the more they will want to be involved financially and pray-wise. There has been a period when news from the IMB was scarce. I sincerely hope we can receive more of the stories from the field. Feedback: Thank you for your comments Ed and Greta. We are currently working to make more missionary stories available. There have always been challenges with security concerns, but we believe we will see the progress of our efforts soon.
This short, colorful brochure is easy to understand and makes a great presentation of what the IMB is doing in the world today.
Gave to the congregation which showed how the Lottie moon money was working. Thanks
I will use thin info for newsletter inserts during the weeks of promotion.
The pamphlets contained pertinent information that shows where and how the financial gifts are used.
This is a wonderful tool for making readers aware of how imperative it is that we contribute to the IMB offering.
We inserted "Your Gifts at Work" booklet in our Sunday bulletin. It was a great way to let folks know how their Lottie Moon offering is used.
I like the specifics of what the money goes for, even if we didn't see the video.
These make great church bulletin inserts to let members know what their Lottie Moon offering is used for. Gives them something tangible to see where they can help to spread the gospel & why it is important to give.
I really liked the color and the way it told how the donations are being used. I'm sure that our congregation will be blessed with it as well as I was.
Thank you for an excellent brochure to promote Lottie offering.
Enjoyed finding out how the offering is used.
Enjoyed finding out how the offering is used.
Great detailed information to share with families in my church.
These books are great. We have several new people in our congregation and it is helpful to everyone as a reminder of what the Lottie Moon Christmas offering is used for.
I like this product because people can comprehend $175 million dollars. But they can, if it is broken down to $45 for example. Great product.
The booklet is a must read for all Baptist. It will show you exactly where God is calling his people to work and what is being done to spread His word.
Good product, helps to publicize the offering.
The booklet, Your Gifts at Work, for the 2016 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions, is a great help in seeing some of the many ways those monies can be spent to help our IMB missionaries, in both their ministry needs as well as for their families' needs. As I looked over the book, I noticed that on the left page there was a missionary whose ministry had been helped in the ways mentioned on those two pages. I also noticed all of the missionaries featured in the book were also featured in one of the videos from the Week of Prayer videos. As I taught my Sunday School class, I combined the highlights from the different categories of uses for the LMCO funding to the missionary family linked with that same category. I also added some of the other videos from the LMCO DVD in the "kit" to round out a half-hour presentation. The booklet really helped tie together the videos, but it also gives our folk an excellent resource they can refer to during the season of LMCO emphasis.
Great resource in sharing where monies go & how they are used to share Jesus!
This brochure is a tremendous resource for educating the church about how invaluable the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is to sustaining our international missions efforts and how every gift makes a direct impact.
