ABCCONN's Department of Educational Ministries invites you to a screening of the movie Amish Grace on Sunday, October 19th, from 3pm to 5pm at the First Baptist Church of Meriden. A discussion will follow.
Since 1952 with the support of American Baptist Women, the Special Interest Missionaries (SIM) Program has strived to personalize American Baptist mission, acquaint congregations with missionaries and their ministries; and cultivate prayer and financial support for mission work in the United States and other countries.
ABCCONN's Special Interest Missionaries are listed below. When possible, these missionaries will be available to speak at events within our region. To get to know more about them, visit the American Baptist Home Mission Society and International Ministries. Journals and newsletters from the missionaries are available on these websites. Our hope is that you can share these journals with everyone in your congregation, so your church as a whole can pray for the missionaries, send messages of encouragement and, if you feel led, support them financially.
"Fearless Generosity" is a four-week stewardship emphasis that invites your congregation to consider fearless living, service, sowing and giving. It encourages you to learn and grow together by inviting persons to share their testimonies and by engaging in congregational challenges that can strengthen your ministry throughout the year.
The "Fearless Generosity" digital Companion Resource provides additional worship and study materials for the "Fearless Generosity" stewardship emphasis theme, based on Ephesians 3:20-21.
The Companion Resource contains a wide variety of worship resources, including:
It may be ordered from Judson at 1-800-458-3766 or downloaded at www.stewardshipresources.org at a cost of $24.99.
