- Life Groups Kick-Off the week of Sept 11
- Sunday, October 15
- The offering name was based on the story of the woman pouring perfume on Jesus from a container carved from soft alabaster stone (Matthew 26: 6-10)
- The entire Alabaster Offering goes toward the purchase of land and construction of churches, schools, medical facilities, and homes for missionaries and national workers.
- The tradition is to put loose change in a small cardboard box over a period of time. On Alabaster Offering Sunday the small boxes are emptied into large cardboard Alabaster boxes during worship
- If you would like to pick up an Alabaster box to put loose change in, stop at the table in the foyer
- You might not think your loose change will amount to much, but this is a worldwide offering among Nazarene Churches
