2023 Home Mission Project

 

Dignity Bibs for Nursing Homes

 

It is time to get creative!  


Atlantic Baptist Women are going to make or purchase adult bibs or aprons for nursing homes as the ABW 2023 Home Mission Project. Sometimes these items are referred to as “dignity bibs” because they are designed to protect clothing from mealtime mishaps while providing dignity to the wearer by not looking like traditional bibs.

No sewers in your group? Consider collecting gift cards so that a seniors’ home of your choice can purchase bibs or other needed items.

 

This year’s Atlantic Baptist Women’s Home Mission Project presents the opportunity of offering encouragement to nursing home residents as well as to the staff.  

Find out how you can be an encouragement and support this project HERE

Great Canadian Bible Study 2023

 

Deborah and Jael: Women of Courage - FIND HERE

2022-23 mission project info -  FIND HERE

     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. 

The 2023 mission project offering will provide support for vulnerable Bolivian women with husbands in prison. Your giving will help them receive sewing training and life skills workshops to start their own businesses. These women 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.
