Upcoming Events

2017 Region Offering

We invite our churches to receive the Region Offering during whatever month in 2017 that works best. Many churches choose to do so in May so as not to compete with the national American Baptist offerings (AFC, OGHS, WMO, RMMO). However, you may promote and receive any of the offerings at a time that works best for your church.

American Baptist Women's Conference

Save the date! The annual ABW conference will be held June 2-4, 2017 at St. Francis Retreat Center, Dewitt, MI.

Share the Transformation Story of your Church!

Leading up to the 2017 Biennial Mission Summit, American Baptist Churches-USA wants to hear from YOU! Do you have a story of transformation in your local church or community? Tell us about it! By sharing Transformation Stories, local churches can learn from one another as they watch/read about stories that may generate ministry ideas for outreach in their local church communities!
