Love Gift Challange
Fact #1 about LOVE GIFT: Love Gift began in 1932 when during the Great Depression our American Baptist Churches faced a 1/2 million dollar deficit. World
MissionSupport (then known as Board of Missionary Cooperation) urged individuals to give over-and-above their tithes and pledges. The Committee on Conference (later named the National Committee on Women's Work) challenged women to raise $150,000 to help meet the crisis. LOVE GIFT was born!
Start checking those dollar bills for an L or G in the serial no.!!! Set them aside to be donated during worship service in early May. Remember... this special offering is given out of a sense of love, faith, and gratitude to God for all His blessings and in recognition of our need to share these blessings with others.
