will have two special guests, one Baptist and one Muslim.
Special guests will dialogue with one another on the
evening’s topic, then conference call participants will have
the opportunity to join in the dialogue. Monday: Taalibah

Calendar of Giving
American Baptists have always been a people of mission; mission is in our DNA.
Our United Mission (UM) contributions give concrete expression to this impulse
and help us to be the hands and feet of Christ – from the local congregation to
all parts of the world.
It is through UM, our one family offering,
that each giver is able to participate in the total ministry of our American Baptist family.
