Missions

 

Clay Pots – Missions Giving
Every year Baptist Churches do a special missions promotion. This year we have a special clay ‘perfume bottle’ that is made in Bangladesh. Our theme is ‘In clay pots’ and we encourage people to think about the treasure they have within them and the need to share that treasure. The pot has to be broken to get the money! There are all sorts of wonderful spiritual lessons in this simple object.
We have 2,500 too many pots! We’re willing to help any church or group of churches with the whole deal if they are keen to increase mission interest. Suitable for churches of any denomination. They can use it for their own missions giving and supporting their own missionaries. The pots, sermon outlines, kids activities, plays, skits, meditations, prayers… the works!! Cost is only $2 per pot (one pot per family). If you want to double your mission giving and create a service or series of services that your congregation won’t forget in a hurry. Email us for orders or more details. kilpatrickr@baptist.org.nz
