afc-2014_logo_button_150x145America For Christ Offering
Our American Baptist Family has a profound heritage as a compassionate, engaging and benevolent people. Since 1824, American Baptist Home Mission Society (ABHMS) has been declaring and heralding the gospel of our Lord. Today, ABHMS remains in that Word and is committed to responding to the changing needs of our ever-changing world. The Theme for the America for Christ Offering 2014 is an appeal to “Seek Justice” based on Isaiah 1:17, which states: “Learn to do good, seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow” (NRSV).
 
shoesInternational Ministries World Mission Offering
In 1813, missionaries Adoniram and Ann Judson, landed in Burma (now called Myanmar) in southeast Asia. Their vision as the first commissioned American Baptist missionaries inspired American Christians to become part of some of the most significant mission movement in Christian History. Now 200 years later, you are still part of this movement! Today, through International Ministries (IM), the Holy Spiirit continues to work in and through missionaries, churches and people like you to bring God’s blessing to all the families of the earth. When you minister to an IM missionary in prayer…when you fund a global project…when you assist a missionary as a volunteer…when you learn at a World Mission Conference…when you serve alongside an international partner – you are serving as hands and feet of Jesus in mission!

The roots of RMMO go back to the mid-1930s, when Amrican Baptist congregations received a Communion Fellowship Offering on the first Sunday of each month to support retired ministers, their widowed spouses and elderly clergy within their churches. In 1948, churches began donating to the November Communion Fellowship Offering. Finally, in 1977 American Baptist Churches, USA launched the Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering (RMMO) to continue this tradition of thankfulness.
