1-1-1 for Missions
On Wednesday, July 24, at the 67th Regular Convention of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS), there were three resolutions presented by Floor Committee 8 on Finance. One of the three resolutions encouraged LCMS congregations to adopt the 1-1-1 offering model. Thanks be to God, the resolution passed, and the good work of 1-1-1 is now being recognized across Synod!
