"LOUISVILLE — First Presbyterian Church of Columbia, TN, believes financial support of international mission personnel can be as easy as 1-2-3.I like this. It is simple and easy to remember.
First Presbyterian is challenging each member to give $2 per month for a year to support Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) international mission personnel. The church named the effort the “1-2-3 Offering” to remind parishioners that the offering is taken on the first Sunday of every month, that a $2 donation is requested, and that funds collected will support the third century of mission by U.S. Presbyterians."
The idea of showing people how effective small amounts of money can be when multiplied over time and numbers of members is used in other campaigns like One Great Hour Of Sharing. How much money leaks out of our pockets in the course of days, weeks, months, and years?
I think I will float this idea at the next Mission Committee meeting.
