Since 1935, American Baptists have contributed to special offerings received in their churches for retired ABC ministers and missionaries or their widowed spouses. In 1977, American Baptist Churches USA launched the Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering (RMMO) to continue this tradition of thanks.
Today, RMMO is a tangible way for the American Baptist congregations to say “Thank you for …” the commitment, service and spiritual guidance of retired ministers, missionaries and their widowed spouses. This year, we have redesigned the structure and theme of this offering to make it both more meaningful to church members and easier to administer. This year we are continuing the tradition of saying Thank You. Our materials will provide opportunities for your congregation to showcase their thankfulness and generosity, attributes that define us as Christians.
The offering supports those who have devoted 15 or more years of 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. We hope you are inspired to make RMMO and its culture of gratitude a tradition in your congregation.
Please feel free to download or print from the PDFs provided or contact Judson Press at 800.458.3766 for hard copies of the materials.
Thank you for…your support.
