Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

As we approach this Christmas season, may our focus be not only on the gifts we are giving but to whom we are giving them. First and foremost, our best gifts must go to God Himself. He must have priority in our hearts.

As we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we also must never forget that Jesus Himself said the reason He came was “to seek and save the lost.” When we join Jesus in His work of sharing the gospel through our lives and resources, we truly are giving to God.

This is why the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is so important. All the money goes directly to support our international mission efforts across the world. As you consider your gift-giving this year, consider a sacrificial gift to this offering.

Christmas Musical at the Library Events Center

As we continue to share Jesus here with the people of Ruston don’t forget to remember Jason and the Ceaseless Praise choir in your prayers as they join with Calvary Baptist Church and St. David Missionary Baptist Church in presenting their Christmas musical on Friday, December 11 at the Lincoln Parish Library Events Center at 6:00 PM. While the musical will be presented on December 6 at Cook, it is our hope that this alternative venue at the library may be attractive to those who would not normally come to a church building.

Please pray and ask God to show you someone you can invite to come and hear the message of Jesus Christ presented through this musical. This is one more way to give to God this Christmas season.
