February Missions Emphasis: Alabaster Offering

In1948, Rev. Elizabeth Vennum, a member of the Nazarene Missions International (NMI) Global Council, was asked to think and pray about a challenging project for missions. Rev. Vennum knew if God wanted the project to take place, He would provide the plan. On the return trip from Kansas City, God gave her His plan of giving "love" gifts. It was modeled after the sacrifice of the woman who anointed Jesus' head with expensive perfume poured from an alabaster jar (Matt. 26:1-13).

 

At the Global Council meeting in 1949, Mrs. Vennum told of the Alabster plan God had given her. The Council unanimously adopted the plan, and the first offering was received in 1949. The Board of General Superintendents approved the plan for Alabaster funds to be used exclusively for buildings and properties in cross-cultural ministries around the world.

 

Now, more that 60 years later, Alabster is still strong, having provided for more than 9,000 projects since 1949. Faithful giving in the global Church of the Nazarene has resulted in over $100 million dollars for this much-needed ministry.

 

Alabster offeringswill be received throught the month of February. Make your check payable to the local church, and together our funds will be forwarded to go towards this valuable offering.
