Special Offerings

Special Offerings

During the course of the year, the church receives various offerings that help support many of the ministries of the Baptist State Convention as well as the Southern Baptist Convention. Here are a few of the special offerings we receive and what the funds raised go to.



  • Baptist Retirement Homes Offering


    • The beginning of February – this offering goes to support the Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina. Founded in 1951, Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina, Incorporated (BRH) is one of North Carolina’s most respected providers of long-term care. With four long-term care facilities located throughout the state, BRH provides all levels of care for Older Adults, including special programs for Older Adults with dementia-related disorders like Alzheimer’s Disease. Baptist Retirement Homes is a not-for-profit church-related organisation that has a historical relationship with the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.



  • The Heck-Jones offering


    • This offering goes to the WMU or the Women’s Missionary Union of North Carolina. The Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) is an auxiliary of the Southern Baptist Convention that was founded in 1888. It is the largest Protestant missions organisation for women in the world. Woman’s Missionary Union of North Carolina is a missions organisation whose purpose is to challenge, prepare and equip Christian believers to be radically involved in the fulfilment of the Great Commission. This offering is named after two past, beloved leaders of WMU NC. Miss. Fannie E. S. Heck and Mrs W. N Jones (Sallie Bailey).



  • The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering


    • In 1895, the first missions offering to benefit the work of home missions (now known as North American missions) was promoted and taken up by Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU). The Home Mission Board (now known as North American Mission Board) asked for $5,000 toward its work. WMU efforts exceeded that goal. From that start to today, more than $1 billion has been raised for North American mission efforts. Every dollar of the offering (named after missions advocate/WMU leader, Annie Armstrong, in 1936) goes to missionaries and their work of sharing the life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the United States, Canada, and their territories.



  • Mother’s Day Offering


    • Since 1924 North Carolina Baptists have given to the Mother’s Day Offering to “extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ, especially to the needy”. Today the Mother’s Day Offering continues that work to assist patients in financial need at Wake Forest Baptist Health.



  • NC Missions Offering


      • North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO) is a special offering received during the month of September that supports the ministries of N.C. Baptist Men, Church Planting, mission camps, associational projects and mobilisation ministry projects. NCMO is your opportunity to impact lostness as God accomplishes many wonderful things through these various ministries.



  • Baptist Children’s Home Offering


    • This offering goes to support the many ministries of the Baptist Children’s home of North Carolina. Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina (BCH) brings hope and healing to children and families in crisis.
