It's Thank Offering Time!
With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you;
I will give thanks to your name, O Lord, for it is good.
Psalm 54:6 (ESV)
It's that time of year! The leaves are changing, the clocks fall back this weekend, and there are colorful inserts promoting the Thank Offering in our church bulletins!
While we don't have too many opportunities during autumn for short-term workers to share their gifts and talents on OPC mission fields at home or abroad, the annual Thank Offering does provide the opportunity for us to share a portion of the financial blessings that we have
enjoyed through the year to support the work of Worldwide Outreach (Christian Education, Foreign Missions, Home Missions). This year’s goal for the Thank Offering is $1,000,000! This represents 25% of the annual budget of the OPC’s worldwide outreach efforts. Will you consider the portion of your gifts you will share?
"We look forward to every opportunity we have ... for those gifts to be used in such a way that the kingdom of God would flourish, that Christ would be exalted, and that believers would be gathered into the kingdom," says John Shaw, General Secretary, Committee on Home Missions and Church Extension.
Five promotional videos have been produced to complement this year's Thank Offering posters and bulletin inserts. A new video is being introduced on the homepage at
OPC.org each week; all of the videos are being posted at vimeo.com; and churches are being encouraged to share the videos in Sunday School or on their websites or Facebook pages.
May God greatly multiply our meager gifts to His glory, a reflection of this year’s Thank Offering theme, “Power Made Perfect in Weakness.” The link below will take you to the video entitled “Worldwide Outreach,” with additional videos just below it on that same
