GIVING TO THE MARY HILL DAVIS OFFERING
The cultural, socio-economic, and religious diversity of our state requires creative approaches in Texas mission efforts. The ministries supported by the offering reflect that. Your gift enables Texas Baptists to minister across Texas and beyond. You bring hope to a battered woman and her family. You provide medicine for a sick child at a free daily clinic. A community has clean drinking water for the first time because of your involvement. A child's life is changed because your generosity enables her to go to summer camp.
WHAT MINISTRIES DOES MY GIFT IMPACT?
Philosophy Statement for the Mary Hill Davis Offering® for Texas Missions
Adopted June 2007
Understanding that missions is what believers do to reach beyond the needs of their congregations to witness and minister for the purpose of fulfilling the Great Commission, WMU of Texas designed the Mary Hill Davis Offering to advance Texas Baptist missionary efforts to help people come to know Christ. Therefore, it is the goal of WMU of Texas to strengthen and support Texas missions opportunities through the Baptist General Convention of Texas. The offering makes possible missions ventures and sustains them until appropriately assimilated into other financial channels.
TWO WAYS TO GIVE
//OPTION ONE – PAPERLESS GIVING
This safe and flexible option is the easiest ways to give to the MHDO! This method allows you to schedule a recurring or one-time gift charged to either your debit or credit card. Plus, you can view your contribution history at any time.
//OPTION TWO – ENVELOPE GIVING THROUGH YOUR CHURCH OR INDIVIDUALLY
If your church promotes the Mary Hill Davis Offering you will have an opportunity in your Worship Gathering for you to give. You can simply place your check or cash in the offering basket as it passes by you. Or, you can simply mail in your offering to:
WMU of Texas
10325 Brockwood Rd.

Inspire generous and sacrificial giving to reach our own state for Christ. Challenge members who have never given to give something. Appeal to those who have given in the past to increase their gifts this year. The acronym SALT is an easy way to remember the four focus areas.
