The Acts 1:8 Strategy
Acts 1:8 (HCSB) “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
As Magnolia Church carries out the Biblical mandate to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, our congregation is actively involved in giving and praying and going. Teams of students and adults regularly minister in our neighborhoods and around the world. Our church has specifically targeted these areas:
- Jerusalem = Riverside and the Inland Empire
- Judea = California and the West Coast
- Samaria = Mexico and the rest of North America
- Ends of the Earth = South Asia and the World
Blood for Missions
Thank you for being a faithful blood donor. Our regularly scheduled blood drive was set for April 5. As you know, our state officials have asked that we put on hold all of our church gatherings until further notice. However, our LifeStream representative asked that we do not cancel because they are in desperate need of blood. LifeStream will honor their $20 donation towards missions, as long as our donors go directly to the LifeStream facility, now through April 11. At the time you arrive and check-in, please give them our church code, RMAG, to receive credit for your blood donation.

The team worked alongside our field workers in Birmingham, United Kingdom, ministering to the refugees’ community through Holliday Club (Vacation Bible School) and leading workshops.
The goal of the workshops was to teach adults how to maintain a healthy lifestyle, practical tools in facing various mental health issues, and parenting skills. The time in the UK was very productive and helpful to our field workers.

2020 California Mission Offering (CMO)
California’s unsaved population of 33 million is equal to the combined population of 10 western states – Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
The four-fold purpose of the California Mission Offering is to:
Educate California Southern Baptists about mission and ministry projects funded through their gifts to this special offering and to create an awareness of the urgent need to reach California for Christ. About 87 percent, or 33 million, of the more than 38 million residents of the Golden State are considered unchurched.
Encourage California Southern Baptists to pray for California missions and missionaries.
Encourage California Southern Baptists to go and share their faith daily and through short- and long-term mission projects.
Encourage California Southern Baptist churches to participate in giving to missions through the California Mission Offering.
Magnolia Church Goal – $12,000

2019 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering (LMCO)
Every Church. Every Nation.
It’s more than a catchphrase. It’s at the core of what we do. We believe every church—and every church member—has a critical role to play in bringing the gospel to the world. Your church’s participation in the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is a key part of that.
Your Gifts Transform Lives
Because you and your church give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, IMB missionaries can take the gospel to unreached peoples around the world. Every dollar you give makes a difference because 100% of the money collected goes to the work of reaching every nation.
The Story of Lottie Moon
In the 1800s, a missionary named Lottie Moon wrote letters from China urging American churches to fund more overseas workers. After Lottie’s death on the mission field, an offering was started in her name. The offering was established to empower international missions efforts for Southern Baptists.
Magnolia Church goal – $65,000
