FALL HAS ARRIVED – SEPTEMBER MEANS ALABASTER!
When the work first began in Hungary, there were no church buildings. The new Nazarenes wanted to be part of something that would immediately make them a part of the global Nazarene family. Their first Alabaster offering exceeded US$1,000. Within a couple of years, their own Alabaster church was built in the center of the village, like a bright yellow sunburst of hope. Read more in Lesson 6 of this year’s Adult Missions Education curriculum.
The method of receiving Alabaster offerings in your church may be different this September. The importance of Alabaster is not the method or the form of your offering – so whether you take your Alabaster box to your church filled with coins or currency, or if you write a check or give online, your Alabaster offering still makes a tangible difference! Your gift enables the purchase of properties and building supplies wherever the Church of the Nazarene ministers – in 163 world areas. Thank you for your generous Alabaster offering!
