State Goal: $1,850,000
As believers and followers of Christ, Southern Baptists recognize our relationship with Him is our most basic and important need. Helping others recognize this need in their lives is a priority for missions. Across South Carolina, we are focusing on the Season of Prayer for State Missions with "Pray Radically" as our theme for 2015. Our focal Scripture passage, Acts 4:31, reminds us to prioritize our activities with prayer, "After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly." As we learn more about this year's mission focus areas, we can choose to "Pray Radically," to speak the truth of God boldly, and to give generously. Through this time of focus, South Carolina Baptists can know better how to pray and give. God is providing opportunities and bringing together people from other countries and across the state so South Carolina Baptists can meet their needs, building relationships that will allow the Gospel to be spoken boldly. Through this year's week of prayer, we want to open eyes to what is God is doing. We are reminded that He is still able to shake the ground. As you learn more about this year's focus areas, you are asked to pray radically and to give generously to the Janie Chapman State Missions offering so the Gospel can continue being shared.
