Janie Chapman Offering for State Missions


2016 JC Yes Lord Header

September 11-18, 2016
State Goal: $1,850,000 


In John 21:17b, Peter passionately exclaims to Jesus, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus’ response to Peter is one of equal passion - “Feed My sheep.” Through the Janie Chapman State Missions Offering, we, as South Carolina Baptists have the opportunity to give and pray so that more may be “fed” – physically and spiritually, through a variety of ministries.

Placing aside the fact that Jesus commands us to love, serve, and care for others, we should be well motivated and inspired to pray more effectively and give more abundantly as we read and learn more about the ministries that are supported through the Janie Chapman State Missions Offering. The missions focus areas for 2016 are South Carolina Baptist Disaster Relief, the Detroit Partnership, School Partnerships, and Church Planting.

The missions opportunities are here in our state. The ministries and the people leading and participating in the ministries are changing lives across the state of South Carolina. Human and physical resources can only continue to thrive if we, as South Carolina Baptists, do our part. What does it require? What do we have to do? Be obedient and respond, “Yes, Lord!”

Information on all of these focus areas and ministries can be found in the 2016 Season of Prayer for State Missions materials. Order forms for free resources: posters, prayer guides, Family Missions Page and Janie Chapman Offering for State Missions, Missions Education, and Great Commission Living envelopes were sent to WMU directors. The Season of Prayer DVD was mailed to pastors, ministry assistants and WMU leaders on the South Carolina WMU mailing list. In addition to state missions videos, the DVD contains printable copies of the Sermon Outline, Churchwide Observance, Children’s Sermons, Clip Art Sheet, Family Missions Page, South Carolina State Missions Facts, and allocations sheet.
