Be a witness to your congregation on Sunday, September 20, and let them know the amazing things that happen because of American Baptist Women’s Ministries. Materials based on the 2015-2017 Ministry Focus "See. . ." are available for your use. You will also find links to 65th anniversary materials and a bulletin insert.
It's that time of year again! Our annual "Shine the Light" award honors exemplary women/ women's groups from local American Baptist churches for how they shine Christ's light in the world. Is there a woman or a women's group that you would like to see recognized? Read the criteria and submit nominations before January 31, 2016.
We're taking registrations for the next virtual mission encounter, "Sacred Space: Bullying in Church Youth Groups." This virtual mission encounter is planned and led by the national leadership team of AB GIRLS. Join us September 21-25 to learn more about the ways that our church girls' ministries and youth groups can unintentionally become places of bullying and, conversely, how they can become places of healing and hope!
Our 2015-2016 mission focus is "See...The Beloved Community: Transformative Relationships." Join us as we explore how we are drawn into reconciliation with God through the cross; how we, together, are co-creators of the Beloved Community through authentic relationships with one another; and how our ministries and congregations can lead our neighborhoods, towns, and cities in becoming the Beloved Community.
