Be Part of the Impact
2021 Home Mission Project
Faith, Fellowship, Food, Fun, and Friends! This is the essence of camping ministry. Camp is a place
for people of all ages, especially children and youth, to discover and develop a growing relationship with Jesus Christ in an inviting and safe environment. At the same time, camp offers personal growth through relationship building among staff and campers in meaningful, yet wonderfully wacky ways.
The pandemic has posed many challenges for camping ministry, and as Atlantic Baptist Women, we
have the opportunity to come alongside and be an encouragement to the 14 camps within the Atlantic
Baptist family. We can do this through our prayers and through the donating of gift cards and items used by camps.
Find out how you can be an encouragement and support this project in 6 simple steps here:

At this year's annual CBW event, women across Canada
will meet together to share the Bible study and participate in a mission project.
The 2021 mission project offering will provide support for the counselling services of a psychologist at Casa de la Amistad, a ministry for children in Bolivia. Children will receive support and encouragement. Thank you for your participation!
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.
Pray, discuss, and decide on a project that would show kindness and be of help to people in your community.
Choose a date and time.
Inform and invite women of the church to participate.
Organize the event’s details and bless others by being their neighbour.
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 Some stories and pictures may be printed in Tidings Magazine or shared on the Atlantic Baptist Women's Facebook page.
Standing together, unified amidst our beautiful diversity!
Join Baptist Women around the globe on the first Monday of November to pray and to provide an offering that will support important ministry projects that will benefit women and their families. A program that includes Bible studies, testimonies of women, and prayer requests from each continent is provided to help you create an effective Day of Prayer event.
For more information on participating or hosting a Day of Prayer event, see the Baptist World Alliance Women’s website:
