The Mite boxes remind us to share our blessings from God, to pray for mission projects, to thank the Lord for such mission oppurtunities, to recognize what our mites can do when joined together.
75% of our mite box funds go to district programs and projects
25% support international programs
In fervent gratitude for the Savior's dying love, and His blood-bought gift of redemption, we dedicate ourselves to Him with all that we are and have, and in obedience to His call for workers in the harvest field, we pledge Him our willing service, wherever and whenever He hath need of us.
We consecrate to our Savior
our hands to work for Him,
our feet to go on His errands,
our voice to sing praises,
our lips to proclaim His redeeming love,
our silver and our gold to extend His kingdom,
our will to do His will,
and every power of our life to the great task of bringing the lost and erring into eternal fellowship with Him.
