Top 50 LMCO reported
A freshly printed copy of the Biblical Recorder is in the mail this week. It includes the two final stories from November’s annual meeting of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. One of those stories is a summary of convention president Cameron McGill’s sermon. The other is a summary of the Reformation panel discussion, sponsored by the convention’s Historical Committee. It normally takes about three issues of the Recorder to report on the annual meeting. This is the third post-convention issue, so this should wrap up coverage of the event.
The print edition also includes a list of 50 churches in North Carolina that led the state in gifts to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions (LMCO). The list will be posted on the website later, so if you want to see it now, you’ll need to get a copy of the Recorder, or if you have access to the Digital Edition, click here and you can see it now on page 12.
