Second Mile Award
Beginning in 1992, the Second Mile Award was created to acknowledge individuals who have gone beyond the norm of what is expected. These are Sunday School and small group teachers and leaders, pastors, and laity who have given of themselves. Some have been publicly visible and some have been behind the scenes, quietly making a difference in others’ lives. They have been Christlike disciples, followers of Jesus, who have helped others become more Christlike.

Annual Bible Society Offering
The Church of the Nazarene designates the second Sunday of December of each year as a special time for the taking of an offering for each nation’s Bible Society. All churches should consult their district office for instructions regarding how to send their contributions to their respective country’s Bible society. (See 2017-2021 Manual, paragraph 908, 2.) The SDMI office is glad to engage district leadership in strategic planning regarding Bible society offerings, if desired.
