Congregation Mission Offerings

Our congregations carry out the Great Commission both locally and by joining together as a synod to reach “all nations” by training, equipping, sending, and supporting workers in the U.S. and 44 other countries. Our Congregation Mission Offerings (CMO) are the main source for funding synodical ministry.

Please note: The cutoff date for remitting 2022 CMO was Monday, January 9, 2023. Subscriptions for 2023 are due Friday, February 3, 2023 at noon (Central).
