Missions Offering

Missions is at the heart of South Main and is what makes our heart beat faster. Simply put, God asks us to be neighbors to those around us. One of the major goals of South Main Missions is to build that sort of neighborly kinship through sustainable partnerships which allow us to extend the hands and feet of Christ from our campus to the needy, whether they are down the street and around the world. To that end a Missions Offering is taken each year culminating on Pentecost Sunday which is May 20, 2018. Please plan to give on or before that date to help extend the crucial work of the partners listed below.

The gift should be designated to Missions and can be made in any of the following ways;

The Missions Offering supports the following;

Operación San Andres: SMBC’s long term mission in Collique, Peru which impacts the lives of hundreds of women, children and families through spiritual formation, food programs, medical care, education and construction efforts.

Sodzo International: The South Main supported mission effort in Kenya aimed at serving the street orphans in the city of Maua. Sodzo’s programs are designed to improve the health, education, social skills and spiritual well being of 35 boys at a time on a recovery farm outside of town. Simultaneously, as many as 2500 families in the area have committed to participate in a long term family strengthening programs in the region.

Texas Baptist World Hunger Fund: Through SMBC’s gift to the Texas Baptist World Hunger Fund, BGCT is able to more robustly respond to hunger and nutrition needs of the poverty stricken and hungry throughout the world.

Mission Scholarships: South Main’s mission scholarship fund assists South Mainers who wish to participate in mission projects or trips, but are not financially able to do so without the assistance.  Such funds support the developing passion of members of the congregation while furthering the progress of the mission project and meeting needs, especially globally.

Local Mission Projects: Your mission offering contributions also fund our church’s efforts to help our local mission partners such as MacGregor Elementary, our developing partnerships in the 5th Ward, construction work performed for those in need in our area and other congregational efforts designed to meet ongoing needs in our community.
