State Missions Offering
Acts 1:8 reveals both a call to serve and the power to serve. Jesus said to his disciples, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8 HCSB).
This year’s state missions emphasis is on service. We serve as we pray for Kentucky missions. We serve as we give sacrificially. We serve as we personally share the gospel with others. We serve as we go and minister in the Name of Jesus. And in every avenue, the Power to Serve comes from the Holy Spirit.
Where does my offering go?
Today, the State Missions Offering (SMO) provides vital support for church planting, evangelism, and mission work in Kentucky. The lives of unborn children are being saved by crisis pregnancy centers funded by the SMO. Inmates are hearing the gospel, trusting Christ, and being baptized by local churches through ministries funded by SMO. Women in the “adult entertainment industry” are being shown a pathway to freedom and salvation by ministries funded by SMO. Extra support is being provided to local associations, church plants, collegiate ministries, Disaster Relief ministries, and a host of other gospel-centered works in our state. ---Dr. Paul Chitwood
