Sunday – March 25, 2018


The North American Mission Board (NAMB) exists to help every church take its next step in missions and encourage every believer to live on mission.  NAMB’s mission field is the United States, Canada and the U.S. territories of Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam and American Samoa. This region contains diverse ethnic groups, languages and religions. Approximately 269 million people in North America do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ.  Through your gifts to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering and the Cooperative Program, NAMB supports more than 5,000 missionaries and more than 3,800 chaplains who serve in difficult places where the gospel is often not welcome.  Our goal at Calvary this year is $6,500, collection time ends April 1st.  We have collected $2,563 so far.
