    Legacy of the Prophets: A Dialogue about Scripture from Baptist and Muslim Perspectives
    Monday, March 12, 2018
    Join us for this one-time, free one-hour webinar as Muslim and Baptist women consider together the concept of prophecy and its similarities and differences between Islamic and Christian perspectives. Baptists and Muslims revere many of the same prophets, and both traditions seek to learn from the lessons of these prophets.  In this webinar, we will study messages and prayers of the prophets from both the Baptist and Muslim traditions, including Isaiah, Abraham, Moses, and others. We will discuss Jesus and Muhammad, too. Click here for more information.
     
    The Women and Girls Mission Fund is a life changer for hundreds of women and girls in the U.S. and around the world. Since the Fund was created in 2011, AB Women’s Ministries has extended nearly $125,000 in grants to 35 new ministry projects that are empowering women and girls to experience healing and wholeness and opportunity to experience God’s desire for their well-being. These are small-sized grant requests for small-sized projects that benefit women and girls; they might typically go unnoticed or disregarded in other contexts because their focus is on women and girls. Our unique mission is with and for women and girls; our call to Christ’s mission is proclaimed in Luke 4:18-19; these “small” grants are funding “mighty” ministries that are bringing new life and hope and wholeness to women and girls worldwide.
