Through the World Mission Offering, our church supports missionaries in North America through the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, state missionaries through the Myers-Mallory Offering and international missionaries through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. We also support local missions through a gift to the Tuscaloosa County Baptist Association with the Hatchel Offering. In addition, we will set aside funds to assist first-time attenders of a FBC-sponsored international mission trip. A gift to our World Mission Offering will go toward funding all of these commitments and help us take the gospel around the world.
