give to support home mission
We are currently collecting our annual offering to support home mission efforts through the American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS) and the Alliance of Baptists. Our giving to ABHMS in 2020 supported communities distressed by the devastation of COVID-19. We also helped families who lost homes to floods, wildfires and storms, along with children living on the edge because of poverty, and seminarians preparing to devote their lives to sharing the Good News. These are just a few of the ways ABHMS ministers to those in need; there are many more. Help ABHMS continue to bring healing and hope to communities, families, children and Jesus’ disciples in 2021 by supporting our home mission offering. Give online selecting America for Christ for ABHMS or Bridges of Hope for Alliance of Baptists. Or you can mail or deliver your contribution to UBC. Learn more here.
