Baker Week of Prayer and State Mission Offering Focuses on “The Heart of Christ”
The 2023 Baker Week of Prayer and State Mission Offering is upon us. This year’s theme is “The Heart of Christ,” taken from Matthew 11:28-30. The Week of Prayer is September 3-10. The Baker State Missions Offering goal is $45,000.
What does the Baker Offering accomplish? Because of Baker, pastors and churches facing emergency situations can be helped. The DBC provides church relations missionaries in different parts of the Dakotas to encourage pastors and resource churches. Through Baker, churches engaged in evangelism, leadership development, church planting, and Native American ministry can be assisted in their mission. The Baker Missions Offering literally touches everything that the churches of the DBC partner together to do.
The annual state missions offering is named for John Baker, the first executive director of the Northern Plains Baptist Convention, and his wife Clide. The DBC was born out of the old NPBC.
Sample resources were sent in August to each church. These included posters, bulletin inserts, and special offering envelopes. If your church needs additional resources, call the DBC office or request the additional resources online at www.dakotabaptist.com.
