JACKSONVILLE (FBW)—Each year, the Maguire State Mission Offering includes an opportunity for local associations to receive a portion of the offering receipts to benefit local mission and ministries causes. By setting and achieving a goal for their churches, association leaders will receive a percentage of the gifts from that association. Association leaders determine how their money will be used. As of July 1, 2007, the associations listed below have notified the state convention offices of their intention to participate in this year's Shared Receipts.
