North American Missions (Annie Armstrong) offering

Our goal is $5,000 in support of the North American Mission Board for mobilizing Southern Baptist missionaries to impact North America with the gospel through evangelism and church planting. This offering takes its name after Annie Armstrong, a Southern Baptist leader who helped to create the Woman’s Missionary Union. The week of prayer for these missionaries starts March 5th.
