Companions on the Journey: Coming Alongside Children and Youth

2024 Home Mission Project

“we will tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.” Psalm 78:4

Scripture is filled with exhortations and examples of sharing faith with the next generation. Yet adults often struggle to develop meaningful relationships with children and youth that provide opportunities to share their faith.

Atlantic Baptist Women’s 2024 Home Mission Project focuses on becoming trusted adults for children and youth. It offers stepping stones to initiating meaningful relationships and building blocks to strengthen those relationships. There are three steps in the project: consider, connect, cultivate.

     In this Canadian Baptist Women's initiative, women across Canada meet together in their local areas to share a study on women from the Bible and participate in a mission project. Gather some friends and host your own study, knowing that women across Canada are doing the same.

Find other studies in the GCBS series here

The 2024 mission project offering will provide support for health and mentorship programs for girls and boys in Kenya.  Your giving will help them receive personal hygiene kits as well as counselling from trained mentors.  These youth will be encouraged by you. Thank you for your participation! 

 

  

 

 

 

ABW Elective 

ABW Elective is an opportunity to engage women in a 6 - 10 week study which includes a project that will involve them in mission either locally or globally. 

ABW Elective is not to replace an existing WMS /ABW group in your church. It is a different style of a group, more suited to women who are busy with work and raising families yet desire to connect with women in a spiritually enriching and mission minded way.  ABW Elective provides a wonderful opportunity for women, who already participate in ABW, to involve other women who do not come to an existing group. 

ABW Elective is a new initiative. Invite the women of your church to join together for a small group study for a specific number of weeks, and involve the group in a mission project. The mission project will support  an ABW home mission within the Atlantic Provinces or a Canadian Baptist Ministries project.

"Be a Neighbour" Community Projects

 

 

Engage women from your church, as well as the Woman’s Missionary Society or Atlantic Baptist Women’s group members in a “Be a Neighbour!” community project that will demonstrate kindness and God’s love. Be creative! Determine to meet a practical need for those living in your community.

 

Ask God to show you a specific need that the women of your church can meet and pray that you will hear what he is calling you to do. Pray that those to whom you will show kindness will see Christ’s love evident and that the Holy Spirit will draw people to our Heavenly Father. Perhaps you could visit places that provide community services in your area to learn about their needs for volunteer help and what needs are in the community that have not yet been met.

 

  1. Pray, discuss, and decide on a project that would show kindness and be of help to people in your community.
     

  2. Choose a date and time.
     

  3. Inform and invite women of the church to participate.
     

  4. Organize the event’s details and bless others by being their neighbour.
     

  5. Debrief with those who participated. How was the help received? What went well? What needed improvement? How did you see God at work as you served others?

Send a brief story of your project and, if possible, a picture to the ABW office at atlanticbaptistwomen@gmail.com Some stories and pictures may be printed in Tidings Magazine or shared on the Atlantic Baptist Women's Facebook page.
