Thank you for giving to the NC Missions Offering 2022! LRBA Goal: $ 53,000


NC Missions Offering is very helpful to LRBA and our local mission efforts! NCMO supports Baptists on Mission, camps and disaster relief efforts, church planting and local associations. 10% of total comes back to our Little River Baptist Association. This 10% return gift provides funding for outreach tools like the John 3:16 Card, local mission projects like wheelchair ramps and other local mission efforts and outreaches.


2019 – 25 LRBA churches gave $ 50,836.69 and we received $ 5,083.67 48% participation.


2020 – 21 LRBA churches gave $ 47,161.18 and we received $ 4,716.12 40% participation.


2021 – 23 LRBA churches gave $ 50,813.70 and we received $ 5,081.37 44% participation.


LRBA was #10 in NC for percentage of churches participating in NCMO with 44%.

LRBA was #7 in NC for amount given to NCMO with a total 23 churches giving $50,813.


Special thanks to our perennial top 4 giving churches: Intentional Love, Kennebec, South Erwin and Angier.


Please pray for and consider your NCMO giving for 2022 as we seek to reach the Harnett County area with the Good News of Jesus Christ and saturate our area with the Gospel!
