One of our church's highest values is supporting missionaries and mission projects, both internationally and in our local community, to the extent that approximately 20% of our church budget goes outside our congregation to missions each year.
Consider being part of our American Baptist Women's Ministry, which is a prime support group for missions within the congregation.
