    Mission Dignity Sunday is June 24th.  What is Mission Dignity?   Since 1918, GuideStone Financial Resources has been on a “Mission” to provide “Dignity” to retired Southern Baptist ministers, workers and their widows. These are men and women who have faithfully served God’s people and now find themselves struggling to meet even basic needs. Many served small, rural churches that paid only modest salaries and couldn’t afford to contribute to their pastors’ retirement. Often, these loyal soldiers of the cross had to work extra jobs just to make ends meet.  Mission:Dignity currently helps almost 1,800 people with extra money needed for housing, food and vital medications. It has also ensured a well-deserved dignity, independence and, often, the ability to continue serving.  100 % of your gift helps someone in need.  Through Mission:Dignity, Southern Baptists are providing much needed monthly assistance to these aged servants. $7 million is distributed annually with most of the funding coming from individuals, groups and churches throughout the SBC.  Just $10 provides help for one day.
