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 50 other countries. Our Congregation Mission Offerings (CMO) are the main source for funding synodical ministry.

Thank you to all congregations who gave CMO totaling more than $21,111,878 in 2018! Also, thanks to the 99 percent of congregations who submitted their 2019 CMO subscriptions by the Feb. 1 deadline! We praise God and commend you for your partnership in Christ’s kingdom! Watch the Together e-newsletter for CMO updates.
