Retreat To The Mountains 2021

 

It was a wonderful time to "Retreat to the Mountains," and the weather was beautiful. "Rest" was the theme. It was a great opportunity to met some new women who are leaders in their church.

 

With all of the stress in our world and challenges to everyone’s mental health, you might think the Women In Ministry retreat was “heavy” and “serious,” but you would be mistaken. There was joy and laughter and a spirit of “fun” that permeated the lodge.

Lights, Camera, Action

 

At Lower Providence Baptist Church, it's still a work in progress but here's a couple pics of their new AV equipment thanks to the ABCOPAD grant. The church was able to get a new laptop, a PTZ camera with a joystick controller, and all of the peripheral wiring equipment to hardwire from the sanctuary to the first floor classrooms and nursery. There was even enough left over to buy the materials to build a new console desk for the equipment. WOW!

Blossburg Baggage

 

At FBC, Blossburg, the AB Ladies gave another suitcase headed for Brazil. Our AB Women have been absolutely amazing responding to the request for Thrift Shop items to help IM Missionary Corenne Smith and Hope Unlimited ministering in Brazil. There are so many great partners in ministry throughout ABCOPAD!

Let us arise and build

At New Hope Church in Broomall, Rev. Jeff Evans shows their new gym build. Despite the fact the gym, kitchen area, and bathrooms in the new structure are not yet complete, community groups are already approaching the church to rent the space.
