65th Anniversary of ABWM
2016 is the 65th Anniversary of American Baptist Women’s Ministries! AB Women's Ministries is taking the celebration of our 65th anniversary as a time to honor our past and all those visionary, courageous women who have come before, and to look towards the future that God is unfolding in us, through us, and for us!
2016–2017 Mission Focus "See…The Suffering: Drug Addiction"
Our 2016–2017 mission focus is "See…The Suffering: Drug Addiction". The 2016–2017 mission focus "See…The Suffering: Drug Addiction" invites American Baptist women and girls to explore:
- The difference between understanding drug addiction as a moral failing versus understanding it as a disease;
- How people become addicted to drugs;
- What impact that addiction can have on them and on everyone around them;
- How our faith calls us to respond.
