LEADERSHIP GUIDE

THANK YOU for ministering to children and families through the Annual Offering. This is your guide for recommendations and resources to help your church collect its best offering.

Plan

 

The timeline below offers recommendations to help you plan and inspire ideas for your church's offering.

PREPARE
  • PRAY: Ask God to lead your church's efforts and in setting your offering goal.

  • ORDER RESOURCES: Make sure you have enough materials. If you still need envelopes, bulletin inserts, posters, etc., order online or call 336-474-1209.

  • SCHEDULE YOUR EVENTS:

    • Schedule a BCH speaker to share at your church. Call 336-474-1209 or visit bchoffering.org/speaker

    • Mark the Week of Prayer (Nov. 15 - 22) on your calendar or choose the dates most convenient for your church to participate.

    • Schedule dates for events surrounding your offering.

    • Consider showing a video each week.

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. Speaking about the offering directly before or after showing the video during a service can be very effective.

  • Share 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.

  • Participate in a stay-at-home missions project: Though physical events have been canceled because of COVID, your church, Sunday School class, small and youth groups can be involved with BCH by using our new four-week prayer guide or participating in “Cards for kids.” Find these missions resources on our Friends of Children page.
