Impacting Locally Through Home Missions
Atlantic Baptist Women impacts our local communities by partnering with several ministry programs and projects within the Atlantic Provinces.
Some ministries ABW regularly contributes to are:
Vacation Bible School & Grants for Camps
Hospital Chaplaincy (Halifax and Saint John)
Newfoundland & Labrador Association Project
Pregnancy Resources Centers
Home Mission Project 2022
Our Home Mission Projects are opportunities for women to reach out to others, within the Atlantic Provinces, with compassion to meet a need. Women join together, combine their resources, and help others.
Pregnancy centres are places of help and hope that provide compassionate support and education in a caring, respectful environment for individuals and families impacted by unexpected pregnancy and other pregnancy-related challenges. Their free and confidential services offer encouragement at a time when feelings of loneliness and uncertainty may be overwhelming. Through peer mentoring, support programs, counselling/health services and referrals, parenting education, material goods, and other post-pregnancy programs, pregnancy centres come alongside those experiencing pregnancy-related challenges with resources and accurate information. The staff and volunteers at pregnancy centres offer care that demonstrates how we are all wonderfully made by God, our loving Creator.
This year’s Atlantic Baptist Women’s Home Mission Project presents the opportunity of offering encouragement to clients as well as to the staff and volunteers of seven Atlantic area pregnancy centres in three ways: finances, items, and encouragement cards and prayers.
