Campaign for the ELCA - Million Dollar Mission Jar Challenge
Skip Navigation Links

MDMJ Challenge
We invite you to prayerfully consider supporting Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA to continue and grow the work of the Church around the world. This year’s emphasis is Global Mission!

 

What can you do? How can your set this challenge in motion in your congregation?  

  • Pick up a jar from the table at synod assembly and bring the jar back to your congregation. Introduce the Million Dollar Mission Jar challenge to your congregation (pastor, council, ministry teams, circles).

  • Look at the insert and notice that it is designed for individuals to personally choose which area(s) of the campaign they would like to support.  This is where their hands will follow their heart.  Individuals will be asked to send their payment directly to the synod, noting their congregation on the form.  This simplifies the process for your staff.

  • At the end of the challenge, your congregation will receive a report of the total funds and how they were designated.   

  • Visit the Synod website for downloadable resources, ideas for keeping the challenge going, and information on where you can purchase supplies.  Watch the synod e-newsletter, What Matters, for the announcement of when these resources will be ready!  (Mid-May)

Million Dollar Mission ChallengeWhat can you do? How can you personally participate and support?

  • Create your own jar and decorate with the Million Dollar Mission Jar Challenge insert.

  • Place the jar in a space where it will be seen: a kitchen counter, dining room table, night stand, etc.

  • Be reminded each time you see the jar to pray for families and communities near and far and consider how just a dollar a day will change lives.  Fill the jar!

  • When you are ready, remove the insert and tell us where you would like to designate your offering.  You can divide it or give to one initiative...this is where your heart and your hands meet.

  • You’ll need to convert your coins to a check and send it to the synod office at the address on the front of the form by March 31, 2018 to be counted in this year’s challenge.
