The International Mission Board (IMB)  Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is taken during December each year..  What you will see within the Christmas Offering material is "Every church. Every nation." This is the overall message for IMB, believing that every church has a role to play in reaching every nation. I hope that the church you attend will give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering that goes 100% to Southern Baptist Foreign Missionaries and study about those missionaries and pray for them.

Thank you for those who bought gifts for the children and those of you who gave money to help the program. 850 folks were served.We also received 500 Back Packs to be given out to our 4 to 14 year old children along with their gifts, It takes all of us to make this happen and we all appreciate it very much. Our churches, businesses, industry and individuals are wonderful. There are a lot of good people in Ashe County who want to help others. Merry Christmas from the Christmas Project of Ashe County.
