Thank Offering Update
Updated: May 4
Hi Ladies! Here is some valuable information about our Thank Offering!
In light of the disruption caused by Covid -19, we are extending the deadlines for Thank Offering. Congregations should send their Thank Offerings as one check to their State/Regional CGWM treasurer by August 31st. State/Regional CGWM treasurers should send one check for 60% of the total Thank Offering donations to the General Conference CGWM Treasurer by September 30th. Individuals not belonging to a CGWM group may send their offerings to either their regional CGWM treasurer or directly to Nancy Scott. All checks sent to Nancy should be made out to CGGC with Thank Offering in the memo.
Please see the website for more details: womenforgod.org or contact Nancy Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are Thank Offering Barrels and what role do they play in the CGGC?
In 1952, The Thank Offering Barrels were instituted by Grace Pierson of the Women’s Christian Service Council (WCSC) (now known as Churches of God Women’s Ministries (CGWM)). Women across the Churches of God were encouraged to drop a coin in a container as an act of gratitude and worship. It is a tangible way to acknowledge the many blessings that God provides every day. As a result of this ministry, the women have collected over $2,130,000 since the inception of Thank Offering barrels. If, on average, we dropped a quarter in our barrels each time we acknowledged our gratitude, that means 8,520,000 prayers of thankfulness have been offered. The blessings don’t stop there. These collected funds are used to support CGGC missions and ministries both locally and around the world
In 2020, our Thank Offerings will support the following ministries:
School for Girls in India (15%)
Physical Therapy School in Haiti (20%),
Winebrenner Female Students (25%),
Venezuela Bible School (15%)
Women’s Leadership Development (25%).
