“The Training Ground for Generations of Strong Fami-lies.” This is the focus of the Edna Martin Christian Center which in 1946 became a home mission of the American Baptist Churches, USA. As we think of our July 2017 mission focus for this Indianapolis Facility, let us remember their concept of “Empowering, Encouraging, Engendering a Vision of Hope.” As you consider giving this month know that your gift will go towards ministry programs for children, adults, seniors and community residents for direct assistance in their lives and to achieve their potential. If you are able to provide a financial offering, please make your checks payable to the church and mark “Edna Martin Christian Center” on the memo line during the offering. Let’s remember to keep this important facility and meaningful mission in our prayers this month and always.
