America for Christ Offering

March Mission Offering: America for Christ 2017

America for Christ 2017

March is the month when we take our America for Christ Offering. The theme for 2017 is “Cultivating leaders, Equipping disciples, Healing Communities”. Dating back to 1824, American Baptists have a legacy of mission and ministry, declaring the good news of the Gospel through words and deeds. The work of the Home Mission Societies cultivates “leaders and disciples who impact the continually changing society in the United States and Puerto Rico with the Gospel that heals and transforms.”

“Through your generous donations and partnership, American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) is committed to cultivating dynamic Christian leaders who are culturally and spiritually competent, in touch with their churches and communities, and passionate about ministry and helping people. Highly developed Christ-honoring leaders are called to advance the mission of peace, hope and love in their churches and communities with resilience, faithfulness and proficiency.”

With this year’s focus on developing leadership, the offering reminds us that service is a way of life for Christ’s church and cultivating leaders to help us in that call is an important part of the work.

We have received $450 of our $850 goal. Please be as generous as you can in our effort to support the work of ABHMS.
