The roots of the Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering (RMMO) originated in the mid-1930s, when American Baptist congregations received a Communion Fellowship Offering on the first Sunday of each month to support retired ministers, missionaries, their widowed spouses and elderly clergy within their churches. In 1977, American Baptist Churches USA launched RMMO to continue this appreciation of God’s service.
The offering is rooted in thankfulness and honors the individual acts of support and faith that recipients have shown to their congregations and communities.
This year’s theme, Extending Our Hands to Our Neighbors illustrates the importance of being there for one another and remembering we are stronger together then on our own is central to the Christian faith.
We hope you will join us in honoring God’s committed servants. Please feel free to download or print from the PDF’s provided.
