Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering
RMMO is a tangible way the American Baptist family demonstrates their appreciation for the commitment, service and spiritual guidance of retired ministers, missionaries and their widowed spouses. This offering supports those who have devoted their lives to God’s service by providing emergency assistance in times of need and a thank you check at the end of each year. Information and envelopes will be available in the auditorium during the month of December.
