NMI MISSION OF THE MONTH:

 

THANK OFFERING

 

Sunday, November 21st

In the Old Testament, people gave a thank offering as a way of saying "thank you" to God. Today, we give because we are thankful for what the Lord is doing in the lives of people around the globe. Twice every year, the Church of the Nazarene gives to the World Evangelism Fund (WEF) to help share the message of the gospel through our worldwide ministries.

Give your Thank Offering Online Here...

Please be sure to mark "Other" under Fund

and type "Thank Offering" in the memo.
