ABW Continues to Work

Our ladies are continuing their two mission projects even though they are not meeting. They are collecting used postage stamps for one project. There is a container on the counter in the church office for these. The other project involves collecting quarters for Weirton Christian Center for their Quarters for Grades program. This program helps the Weirton Christian Center award their children for good grades which motivates the children to keep on the right track. These donations can be dropped off at the church office.

American Baptist Ladies Here at FBC

The ladies of the A.B.W. have not resumed meeting in person yet but nevertheless we are still working. We are still collecting used postage stamps which we send off as part of one of our mission projects. The other project that we are involved in is at Weirton Christian Center.

A Message from the Executive Director of ABW Ministries

As we approach the Advent Season, let us continue to count on God, prepare inwardly, and share actions of grace and generosity. Let us stay united in ABWM’s mission, vision, purpose, and core values. Our ministries are adaptive and relevant, allowing us to sustain our core programming and proactively and reactively initiate new programming. Generous donors like you have supported our mission and ministry. You recognized that we urgently and thoughtfully address issues that weaken our communities and disproportionately render women and girls despair. May the peace of God be within you!

Rev. Dr. Gina Jacobs-Strain
Executive Director, ABW Ministries

Lizzie Lewis Circle is Still at Work!

Even though our Lizzie Lewis Circle is not currently meeting, we are continuing to work on our mission projects and thank you for your help.

We are collecting used postage stamps for one mission project. There is a container in the church office on the counter where you can leave them. We are also involved in a great program at Weirton Christian Center where we collect quarters for a program called “Quarters for Grades” at the Weirton Christian Center. These quarters are sent to them on a regular basis where they are used as incentives for the children who come there to get good grades. What a way to help a child’s education.

ABW: Receiving and Offering Gifts

American Baptist Women’s Ministries is Christian women receiving and offering gifts in response to our commitment to God. The world and the church need women strong in the Lord, responding to one another and to the needs we see around us. Today, that is the ministry to which God calls us.

Our ladies here at FBC are continuing to support their mission projects even though they are not meeting through the Quarters for Grades program at Weirton Christian Center as well as collecting used postage stamps where they turn into support for various mission projects. As an ABW woman, which all ladies are, we strive to help in any way we can to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to our home mission projects as well as our international projects. We may be small right now, but we are mighty when we band together.

ABW is Hard at Work

Even though our ABW ladies have not been meeting in person, they are still hard at work. They have two projects ongoing. The first is our Quarters for Grades project for Weirton Christian Center and the second is our used postage stamp mission project. These projects have been part of the ABW for quite a few years. There is a box on the counter in the office for your used postage stamps. Donations for the Quarters for Grades project can be turned into the church office. The ladies are anxious to get back to meeting in person for their monthly meetings and helping with the ABW projects.
