Calendar of Offerings

In this plan, separate offerings are promoted and received during the worship service following the approved calendar of offerings as voted by the General Conference committee every year. About 26 Sabbath offerings of the year are assigned to the "local church," and these offerings help support the budget of the local congregation. All loose offerings (not in marked envelopes) will go to the offering of the day. A typical month would look like this:

August 2015:

1…….…….Outreach/Church Budget
8…….…….Division
15…….…….Church Budget
22…….…….Conference/Union
29…….…….Church Budget

Other categories, as well as institutions and special offerings, feature over the weeks of the span of each year. Other distinguishing features of this plan are: In this plan, 100% of the mission offerings taken at Sabbath School are passed on to the General Conference for world mission. This plan makes provision for giving towards "special projects" and needs, and one is to write down their choice of project on the tithe and offering (or other) envelope. accordingly. All plans assume that God's tithe has taken first place in the financial priorities of the faithful steward.

Divisions using this plan include: EUD, Israel Field, MENA, SPD, TED
