Offering Religious Liberty
Religious Liberty Offering - January 27
This is not just a time to promote the Liberty magazine, but it is a time that as a Church we are reminded of the cost of freedom and that the day is coming when the freedoms that are enjoyed today in this country will be taken away. This offering helps litigation in behalf of church members who may have lost a job because they chose to honor the Lord in keeping the Sabbath. It also sends the Liberty magazine to government officials, attorneys, and local leaders. We need to keep ‘ringing the bell” for freedom now so that we can continue unimpeded the work of evangelism for as long as possible.
