Throughout the year, we take offerings to help our national and global brothers and sisters. These offerings are listed below.
In addition to these offerings, we support Ruth and Chuck Fox, who are American Baptist missionaries in Thailand. You can read more about their activities by clicking here.
American Baptists have always been a people of mission; mission is in our DNA. Our United Mission (UM) contributions give concrete expression to this impulse and help us to be the hands and feet of Christ – from the local congregation to all parts of the world. It is through UM, our one family offering, that each giver is able to participate in the total ministry of our American Baptist family.
America for Christ
The America for Christ Offering is the American Baptist response to the needs of home missions within and beyond the local congregation in witness and service for Christ as mandated by the Great Commission. Gifts are channeled through National Ministries and Regional Ministries to fund home mission, education and local community ministries.
One Great Hour of Sharing
The One Great Hour of Sharing offering is the American Baptist response to worldwide disaster relief and development. One Great Hour of Sharing in cooperation with other denominations, is a channel for national and international aid in times of crisis.
