American Baptist Churches of Pennsylvania and Delaware


    Welcome to the website of
American Baptist Women's Ministries of Pennsylvania and Delaware!

Greetings to our ladies across the Region! We pray that you are staying safe and healthy in these unprecedented times. Your leadership of ABWMOPAD has tried to keep in touch via Notes and News, the ABCOPAD website, Constant Contact emails and social media. We wanted to send a newsletter just to give one more touch point with information for our ladies.

Thrive 2021 Conference ... Virtual!
June 18-19, 2021

The 2021 Thrive Conference featuring our own Rev. Kelly Legg will take place virtually on June 18 and 19.  The ABWM Thrive Conference planning team will be meeting soon to begin preparations for the Conference. While there is some sadness the group won’t be meeting in person, there is also great excitement to explore this new method of doing significant ministry via technology in our Region.
Your ABWM leadership Team wants to encourage our ladies to use the Christine Caine 20/20 study and have thoughts of adding links to watch some of her teaching. We are rolling the 2020 THRIVE Conference Project forward as well, so bring items for those three missions to THRIVE 2021.
Region Project money (goal $15,000) will still be collected and dispersed after THRIVE 2021 Conference for Brazil. Please mail your giving for Brighter Days for Brazilian Youth to: ABWM Treasurer Cynthia Carter-Wedgewood, 2524 West 18th Street, Wilmington, DE 19806. Or give online at
