man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or
under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
II Corinthians 9:7
"I do not believe we can settle how much we ought to give. I'm afraid the only safe way is to give more than we can spare." C.S. Lewis

Won't you please help?
Almost 2,000 years ago, the Apostle Paul saw a vision of a man saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.”
Today, that same call is being echoed all over the world—from Myanmar and Brazil to South Africa and Macau. People are crying out for the hope and light of the gospel in a world darkened by sin.
At the First Baptist Church of Boston, we’re committed to Jesus’ Great Commission to “make disciples of all the nations....” (Matthew 28:19) One of the practical ways we can do this is by supporting our annual World Mission Offering.
During worship each Sunday in October, we’ll learn about the World Mission Offering using the theme Rise to the Challenge and the Macedonian Vision found in Acts 16.
Together, we’ll have our hearts touched by the spiritual needs around the world.
Together, we’ll see how International Ministries is working to place and sustain missionaries around the world. Together, we’ll be inspired to apply the biblical principles of Acts 16 to our daily lives.
And Together, we’ll celebrate how our World Mission Offering gifts make possible the ministries of 114 long-term IM missionaries and more than 1,800 short-term missionaries and volunteers working with more than 200 partner organizations in more than 70 countries.
I believe that when we Rise to the Challenge, God will lead us to provide increased support for worldwide mission. Our 2014 World Mission Offering goal is $300. Please join me as we gain a deeper understanding of International Ministries and of how others (and we ourselves!) will be blessed through our World Mission Offering giving.
