Collected: September 22 - october 27, 2019
Alabaster Offering is a way for us to collect funds (primarily in the form of coins) to be used for missions' fields around the world. The money goes to build churches, hospitals, pastors' homes, and schools.
What it is:
As described by the Nazarene Church's website and upheld by HermNaz, "..the entire Alabaster Offering goes toward the purchase of land and construction of churches, schools, medical facilities, and homes for missionaries and national workers." This is an offering held by the Nazarene denomination around the world.
How it works: every year we have an Alabaster offering collection time. People will often collect coins in little boxes or plastic bags.
CLICK HERE for more from the Nazarene Denomination's website about Alabaster, including story videos.
Don't forget to pray for where this offering will be taken and those impacted by it.
