On Sunday, Nov. 22, churches are asked to receive a special offering for the 2020 United Thanksgiving Offering (UTO). The UTO benefits every department of the BMA of Texas (Baptist Missionary Loan Association, BMA Texas Missions, Baptist Progress, Jacksonville College and Texas Baptist Home for Children). BMA of Texas department directors have named the 2020 UTO in memory of Bro. Jerry Burnaman, who served as the director of BMA of Texas Missions from 1998 until 2015, as well as the business manager of the Baptist Missionary Loan Association from 1998 until the Lord called him home Aug. 13, 2020.
We are asking each BMA of Texas church to set a goal to give $1,500 toward the 2020 Jerry Burnaman United Thanksgiving Offering. Our overall goal is $125,000. If just 84 churches give $1,500, we will surpass our goal!
So please mark your calendars, Sunday, Nov. 22—the Sunday before Thanksgiving—to receive a special offering, and encourage your church to give a total of at least $1,500 toward the UTO.
