• Sep 24  Alabaster Offering
    Alabaster funds help provide for land and construction of churches, schools,
    medical facilities, and homes for missionaries. Our next Alabaster Offering will
    be collected Sunday, September 24th. There are still many people worldwide
    who have yet to hear of Jesus. Please continue to give to this vital ministry.

    History of Alabaster ~  In 1948, Rev. Elizabeth Vennum, Global Council
    member, was asked to think and pray about a challenging project for NMI.
    Rev. Vennum knew if God wanted the project to take place, He would
    provide the plan. On the return trip from Kansas City, God gave her His
    plan of giving "love" gifts.   Now, more than 60 years later, Alabaster is
    still strong, having provided more than 9,000 projects since 1949. Faithful
    Nazarenes around the world have given over $100 million dollars for this
    much-needed ministry.  While we understand the church consists of the
    people of God and not a building, buildings erected for the purpose of
    ministry help provide a sense of permanence, functionally enhance
    ministry efforts, and convey an attitude that the Church of the Nazarene
    intends to "put down roots." Alabaster funds help provide for land and
    construction of churches, schools, medical facilities, and homes for
    missionaries and national workers. Our next Alabaster Offering will be
    collected in early fall.  There are still many people worldwide who have
    yet to hear of Jesus.  Please continue to give to this vital ministry.
