Help Care for Children while Celebrating Your Birthday

The Birthday Offering is one of the most enduring traditions at the Children’s Home. The giving of an offering at birthday time has been a regular part of Missouri Baptist life since 1890 when William S. Crouch of First Baptist Church, Carrollton donated a penny for each year of his life in celebration of his birthday.

Since that time, individuals and churches have used the celebration of birthdays to bless children. This offering provides a way to recognize people on their birthdays while sharing in a mission work by helping children and youth at the Children’s Home.

Those giving at least $1 for every year of life on their birthday can receive a unique Birthday mug by requesting it when they send in their birthday offering. The design and color of the mug is changed annually. This year’s mug is black with a white and gold design

A variety of other materials are available to help promote the Birthday Offering, including:

  • Full-color birthday cards
  • Birthday pencils
  • Pew envelopes
  • A house-shaped Birthday Offering Bank.

If your church needs any MBCH birthday supplies, please call 1-800-264-6224 or go to www.mbch.org/bd_orderform.php. You can see samples and order birthday offering supplies on-line.
