Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

 

Who is Lottie Moon, and why is the Christmas Offering named for her?

 

Getting to Know Lottie

Let’s face it. You know who Lottie Moon is. You know what the offering is all about. You know why it is important to pray for our missionaries. But, you’re reading this because you want other people to have the same urgency about these things as you.

Giving to Missions

As the time for giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering  is on my mind, I have been thinking about how we teach preschoolers about giving to missions. In this world of online banking, direct deposit, debit and credit cards, how do we begin teaching preschoolers about financial giving?

Lottie Moon: All in for Christ

This time of year is full of rich traditions. Many of us have traditions that are always significant parts of our celebrations, traditions that are meaningful and that we look forward to each holiday season.

Lottie Moon Tea Cake Recipe

Lottie Moon often made tea cakes (cookies) for the children in her village. After eating the cookies, the children would take Lottie to meet their mothers. Lottie shared the gospel with the mothers and the children.

Last Minute Lottie (Moon Christmas Offering) Ideas

Christmas is over, but the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering (LMCO) season is not! And, guess what? It's not too late for your GAs, RAs or CAs to help take up the offering through a fun project.

Prayer and Giving Dovetail

My earliest Christmas memories revolve around church life. I remember spending hours practicing lines for Christmas pageants. All children were in the productions. I don’t recall it being optional. Afterward we would exchange gifts in our small country church.

In Honor of Lottie

She sailed across the sea
To a land so far away.
She left behind her expected life,
When she heard what God had to say.

God placed a call on the heart
Of a woman named Lottie Moon.
She gave her answer faithfully,
And would arrive in China soon.

Prepare Your Heart

This past Sunday marked the beginning of the Advent season, a time of preparation for the birth of Christ. I spent the weekend decorating my house, both inside and outside.

School Roof Tile

The green tile is a great reminder to me of the impact preschoolers and children can have when they give to missions. This single tile that sits on a shelf in the WMU lobby has a chevron design and a flower.
