PREPARE
SHARE
  • Hang your offering posters.

  • Make announcements during in-person and online services.

  • Announce your goal and explain how your church will collect its offering.

  • Show the videos - they share stories of lives changed through your offering. Discuss the offering's importance before or after showing the video. Include videos in your online services, e-blasts and social media.

  • Share promo graphics on your website/social media pages.

  • Share in your bulletin, newsletters and emails.

PARTICIPATE
  • Distribute the offering envelopes and bulletin inserts which include the Week of Prayer guide. Ask church members to use the guide to pray for the BCH ministry.

  • Collect your offering and send it to the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.

  • Online giving  is crucial to collecting your best offering. Add Baptist
    Children's Homes of NC as an option to your church's online giving platform and make your congregation aware through announcements as well as social media, e-blasts and on your website.

  • If you cannot add the Children's Homes as a designated option to your church's online giving or if you do not have your own online giving platform, you can direct them to give at bchoffering.org/give
