World Hunger Month

October is World Hunger Month and the offering that is featured provides funding for several hunger ministries here in Indiana. There is a little-known fact about this offering and its benefits: funds are given to our state based on the number of churches that participate in giving!

Rather than funds being awarded according to the amount given from any individual state, hunger ministries are assisted according to how many churches give to the offering. That means if our Indiana churches’ gifts come from only a few churches, funds given back to us will be very limited.

Hunger funds have been decreased in recent years because fewer churches are participating. Let’s pray that the number increases this year! Even if your church does not promote giving, you as an individual or family can give and designate your gift for World Hunger relief.

Hunger relief is a great way to enable our missionaries to share the gospel with others as they provide food through on-going ministries.
