2018/2019 WSBMN State Mission Offering
2018/2019 WSBMN State Missions Offering “For Wyoming…For the Church”
By Lynn Nikkel
The Wyoming State Mission Offering helps fund some of the cooperative ministries of our Network, assists churches in doing Kingdom ministry, and 100% is used for what God is doing in Wyoming. This year’s goal for this important offering is $70,000.
The offerings received will continue local support for a variety of cooperative ministry efforts as illustrated in the prayer guide, as well as help support the salaries and expenses of our Wyoming Missionaries. The Northeast, South and West Regional Missionaries serve to be a first line of support to pastors and churches. The State Missionary serves all our churches and provides leadership and administration of our cooperative ministry efforts.
Our Wyoming State Mission Offering was previously named the Delmar Offering for State Missions. Messengers at last year’s annual meeting approved the budget that changed the name of this offering, as we attempt to promote that this is an offering devoted to the support of God’s work through all the churches of our Network.
Ephesians 1:22-23 (CSB) tells us, “And he subjected everything under his feet and appointed him as head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of the one who fills all things in every way.”
And, everyone in our Mission Network are of one mind and heart in understanding that God has given the task of accomplishing his Great Commission through the CHURCH! And this is a work that requires his church working together in unity of spirit as we serve him together. God provides through his people for his work, and God’s people in Wyoming care about penetrating the vast lostness of those who live here, and so we expect to exceed this offering base goal and move on toward our Vision for the Future goal of $90,000.
Publicity and promotional materials for this offering are in the mail and on their way to all of our cooperating churches, church plants and ministries. Please use the posters and prayer guides as bulletin inserts to help the members of every church understand the work we do together through this offering, and give them the opportunity to participate in that work. And our churches should let us know if you have any questions or need additional materials.
