Hello, BRN Family! It’s good to be with you today!

Check your mailboxes soon for a full package of materials designed to help you celebrate the Baptist Resource Network’s annual Week of Prayer and Offering for Missions.

Every year, Baptists across the BRN pray for and give toward missions endeavors right here in our own backyards. This annual emphasis, usually held the second week in September, allows us to have a continued focus on our neighbors across Pennsylvania and South Jersey, especially in the areas of collegiate ministry, compassion care, and disaster and crisis relief.

This vital offering also supports the development of resources to help churches all across our region KNOW our neighbors, SHOW love to them, and invite them to GROW in Christ.

We are using this year’s #LovePASJ missions offering, with an offering goal of $50,000, as well as our October 4 Accelerate Conference (annual meeting) to kick off “SHOW,” the second part of a three-phase initiative, also called #LovePASJ.

Vital statistics indicate that every 4.2 minutes, a person in PA/SJ dies without Christ. It is imperative that we show Christ’s love before it is too late!

Accordingly, we have designed a full campaign with materials to assist you in promoting this vital offering, including prayer bulletin inserts (in bundles of 50), posters, giving envelopes, presentation slides, social media graphics, and more.

Simply visit online at brnunited.org/offering to order materials. Any church or individual who would like to give toward this offering can also visit the same web page. If your church is bilingual, be sure to check out the website for materials that meet your needs. And don’t forget, downloadable #LovePASJ resources are available at www.lovepasj.com.

We heartily thank you in advance for committing one week to join with your fellow Baptists across the BRN to earnestly pray for requests and give to help support ministry right here in our region. Thank you and God bless you!
