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

Please note: The cutoff date for remitting 2017 CMO is January 8, 2018. Subscriptions for 2018 are due Friday, February 2, 2018 at noon (Central).
