Go Beyond Annual Report

December is month of missions at Kingsland. Historically, this is the month when we give our gifts to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering to help fund the work of the Southern Baptist International Mission Board. Your gifts to this special offering help support more than 4800 Southern Baptist missionaries serving worldwide. For the past several years, Kingsland has been in the top 100 giving churches to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.

For the past eight years, your gifts to Kingsland’s Go Beyond Missions Ministry have helped us to take the gospel around the globe. We have developed strategic partnerships with many of our Southern Baptist Missionaries and other Great Commission partners in several countries. Together we are declaring God’s glory among the nations.

This month, Americans will spend billions on gifts. Many will spend money they have not yet earned to purchase gifts they can’t afford. Some of these gifts will not survive as long as the payments. What we invest in God’s kingdom, however, has lasting value. Your gifts to our missions offering matter and they make a difference.

Missionary Jim Elliot was martyred at the end of a spear in the jungles of Ecuador in 1956. Before his death, Elliot wrote these words in his journal: “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” He was right. The only investment that will last is what we invest in eternity.

Kingsland members should have received a copy of our 2013-2014 missions catalog and report in the mail. Copies of this report are also available in the commons areas at Kingsland. I hope you will read it carefully and prayerfully as you seek God’s guidance on what to invest in reaching our world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. This report contains instructions on how to give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and also to Kingsland’s Go Beyond missions initiatives.

Thank you in advance for investing in eternity by praying, giving, and participating in God’s work around the globe.
