Annie Armstrong Easter Offering

Portrait of Annie Armstrong

Annie Walker Armstrong (1850-1938). The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering is primarily in support of North American missions. On May 14, 1888, women from 12 states met in Richmond, Virginia and formed the Executive Committee of Woman’s Mission Societies, which later became the Woman’s Missionary Union. In 1888, Annie Armstrong was elected executive director and served until 1906. In 1934 the offering for the Home Mission Board was renamed the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for Home Missions.
