Plan to join us for food, fun, and fellowship and help the youth raise funds for future activities. Sign up to bring a soup on the sheet on the window or call Brian or Rhonda Johnson.

February Mission Focus-Campus Ministries

The February mission focus correlates to “campus ministries” of the American Baptist Churches. This is a time to think of our own college students and the continuation of their walk with Christ while they are away from home and away from their home church.

According to the American Baptist Church website, the “…American Baptist have a long and rich history of enduring conversations and transforming associations with students at American colleges and universities.” Obviously, it’s not just about our youth. It is also about the support for other youth who may first encounter Christ while at school. Can you think of anything better to happen to a young adult as they pursue future goals and dreams? As theologian R.L. Dabney once stated, “The education of children for God is the most important business on earth.”

If you are able to contribute to the Campus Ministries of the American Baptist Churches, please make your check payable to the church and mark the memo line for Campus Ministries ABC. Thank you for your prayers for our youth as well as any financial support you might provide!
