the mite offering

Every offering counts

In Luke 2 and Mark 12, we are introduced to an unnamed woman, an overlooked character, a forgotten widow.

As Jesus is in the Temple observing givers give their offerings, he witnesses this widow give two small mites (coins). Hear the power of Jesus' statement of this woman's act:

"...This widow has given by far the largest offering today. All these others made offerings that they'll never miss; she gave extravagantly what she couldn't afford - she gave her all!" Luke 12:1-4 MSG 

The beauty of this solitary moment in history is that we see this woman give sacrificially, out of her love for God. And more than that, God saw and took note - not just saw, but recorded it in the pages of history.

Annually, the Women's Ministry of Indiana are going to "adopt" a cause, a project, a group that we are compelled by God to bless with an offering. Our challenge to you is to give, to give your best, to give a gift, not from your surplus, but from your heart. And trust that God will see and will acknowledge for all time your sacrifice of love.


2019 Mite Offering Recipient

ReMade is passionate about empowering Indian women through sustainable, respectable work, fair income and benefits, and education and training in areas around Calcutta, India. The goal is to not just have vintage saris remade into one-of-a-kind products; but to see women's thoughts, self-worth, and lives remade as well.

It costs $5,000 to create a ReMade center and sustain it for one year, at which point it becomes self-sustaining. As Indiana District Women's Ministries, we would like to build 3 ReMade centers. Will you bring your Mite Offering to Vital Conference and help us raise a miracle offering for this cause?

our 2017 recipient

lake placid conference center

Last September at Vital, we all came together and contributed towards new bunk bed sets for Lake Placid Conference Center. Our goal was $10,500 - or 21 complete sets ($500 per unit). We are excited to announce that the ladies of Indiana went far above the goal! Kathy was able to present Jack & Teri Shiflett (our Camp Directors) a check for $17,434.35 at Minister's Conference in October. This will bless countless children and teens as they spend their summers at camp. Thank you Indiana Women's Ministries for bringing your best and being a blessing!
