Global Neighborhood

Offering collection at Koza Adventist Church, Cameroon.Have you ever had a moment when it felt as though supporting the mission work of the Seventh-day Adventist Church was a burden?  When you thought your offerings and gifts would barely make a difference?  Depending on where you live, it might even seem like “we” are raising all the money for mission work “over there.”  

The good news is that church members around the globe have the same eternal values you do.  We want Jesus to come soon!  And instead of feeling weighed down with responsibility, it is good to know that we share the privilege of supporting mission work.

In some countries, the offering is collected by passing a pail, plate, or basket.  In other places the custom might be the use of a bag or wooden box attached to a pole.  An usher would typically hold one end of the pole to guide the container from one person to the next across a long row of people.  

Russia Currency: RubleAn interesting collection method in one country is the use of tape.  Two ushers on either end of a row hold a long piece of tape.  As they move slowly down the aisles, they carry the tape above the heads of the congregation in such a way that members can simply reach up and attach their offering to the sticky surface.  

No matter how we give, it is a privilege to support the mission outreach of the Church.  When all of us do our part, we can make sure that missionaries and Global Mission pioneers can continue to do their special work.

Thank you for sharing the privilege.
