American Baptist Churches of Pennsylvania and Delaware

America For Christ 2019


We live in a time when polarization and alienation are common. Diverse persons in our society often feel shunned, and differing voices are at times muted. American Baptist Home Mission Societies' (ABHMS) America for Christ (AFC) Offering 2019, "Healing Communities" —based on Galatians 6:9-10 ("Let us not become weary in doing good")— reminds American Baptists that mission and ministry are rooted in service and that God's grace extends to all, regardless of location.

Through generosity, American Baptists minister as God's heart and hands, healing the broken and the downtrodden. Congregations and individuals serve on the front lines of local communities, opening wide our doors, intervening amid the messiness, healing the broken-hearted, and caring for others amid disaster and devastation. Through our caring actions, Jesus touches those who are hurting and dying.

Your gifts to the AFC Offering impact thousands—through ministries with marginalized children, disaster response, prisoner re-entry and aftercare, immigration and refugee resettlement, public witness and advocacy, resources that equip Christian leaders, chaplains who bring comfort to those in hospitals and nursing homes, and so much more.

Thanks for partnering with us and for being involved in a "Healing Community" that reflects God's redemptive love, transforming lives and communities. Thank you for your generous gifts to the AFC Offering 2019.
