Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions

Our Church Goal: $14,000

Received to Date: Just over $12,500

Well over 100 years ago, a single missionary named Lottie Moon, while serving in China, began writing letters challenging the American church to send and support more workers to go there. After her death on the field, her challenge was heeded in the formalization of an offering in her name. Even if you’re not a Southern Baptist who has given to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, her life is a reminder of why we must give to send and support missionaries serving among unreached peoples in unreached places. 

         One Missionary Story: Keeping the Well from Running Dry At the end of a beaten-up road in Tanzania, a small hospital occasionally gets as full as it can get, and then runs on empty. In the past, it’s had moments where sick children slept two or three to a bed. It’s had moments where anesthetic drugs for C-sections and suture materials for surgery have run out. But the situation has never stayed that way for long, reported Larry Pepper, an IMB doctor. Over and over, churches have stepped up to cover the hospital’s needs, all the way from wheelchairs to building a new pediatric wing. “Churches of all sized have helped,” Larry said. “And because they have, we have seen God work to spread the gospel in amazing ways.” Over the past 22 years, churches have supported the Peppers’ work through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®, the funding source that keeps them on the field. They have provided equipment, and they have met the hospital’s daily needs. “We’re just two people,” Larry said. “But we find that when other people get a passion to come alongside us, God uses it to further His kingdom.” 

We encourage you to give your best gift to Jesus through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.  

  • Church Motto

    First......that all may know Jesus.

    This is the motto of First Baptist Dayton, TN

    taken from 1 Timothy 2:3-5.

     "For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,"

  • From the Pastor

                    New years usually bring new opportunities and challenges and 2019 is no different than the past in that regard. Hopefully many of you have accepted the challenge to read your Bible more this year. Helps are available in the foyer to guide you whether you decide to read the entire Bible through or simply to get more familiar with the narrative of the Scriptures. Whatever you decide I want to encourage you to stick with it. Be determined to not let distractions keep you from completing your task. You will be glad you did it this time next year. 

          As we are preparing to send Bro. Anthony to serve as the pastor of First Baptist Church Benton, KY, I hope you will join us as we pray for and bless the McCully’s as they follow the call of God upon their lives. Also pray for our Personnel Committee as they lead in the search for the Lord’s selection for us. Once again it is a time to stick together and seek what God will do in and through our church family. Let all the praise and glory be to God our Heavenly Father. 

          Again, this year the Upward Basketball and Cheerleading program is a blessing to behold. Thanks goes to all the coaches, players, officials, security team, directors, and support staff for your good work. We are praying that the Lord will use our efforts to bring many into the Kingdom of God. We have invited Jeff Harvel to help us conclude our season this year. He is also going to lead our church in a harvest service Sunday morning, February 24. I hope you are planting, sowing, and cultivating precious souls for the coming harvest. Invite them all to join us for this special service. JESUS SAVES!!
