Dorothy Allport Network Mission Offering
For over 25 years, Dorothy Allport was a dedicated volunteer serving the member churches of NorthStar Church Network. For 77 years, Dorothy was an active member of First Baptist Church of Alexandria serving in a variety of leadership positions from Pastor Search Committee (3 times!), Secretary to the Senior Pastor, and Clerk for 30 years!
No one exemplified church more than Dorothy Allport, so in 2009, the Network Council of NorthStar Church Network established the annual Dorothy Allport Network Mission Offering. NorthStar is privileged to have a Network Mission Offering honoring this outstanding lady. Dorothy's faithfulness, tireless energy, and gentle spirit were an inspiration to all who knew her.
Each year, the offering goes to support various ministries. In 2017, the offering supported disaster relief efforts in Dominica, which was ravaged by Hurricane Maria in September. Through the Mission Offering, we raised $5,311.86 for Dominica, which was in addition to $46,058 raised for Dominica Disaster Relief.
In 2018, $13,128.02 was raised to go towards NorthStar's new mission center to help with many supplies needed to get the Mission Center ready for groups. In 2019, the offering totaled $20,342.69 and supported both the Mission Center DC and the upcoming Food Fight.
In 2020 & 2021, the Mission Offering will go towards the Food Fight events supporting Feed My Starving Children. Please consider donating to help make these events possible.
