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.
The national celebration of the 65th anniversary was launched at the 2015 Women’s Day on Friday, June 26, in Overland Park, Kansas, and will conclude at the 2016 national events for women and girls in July, 2016. The purple star sapphire was chosen by the public relations team of AB Women’s Ministries to symbolize the AB Women’s Ministries 65th anniversary. Sapphires are mentioned twelve times in the Bible. The star sapphire traditionally symbolizes hope, faith, and destiny.
