    American Baptist Women's Ministries' Women's History Month Gatherings are free. Donations are welcome. Your donation will allow American Baptist Women's Ministries to continue providing programs, resources, and leader training for ministries with women and girls.

    Real Connections invites churches to move authentic relationships to the center of congregational life and ministry with the community. The book equips church members and leaders to invest in deeper, more diverse relationships in a variety of contexts: within the congregation; with other churches; with community partners and residents; with people who are isolated or struggling; and across differences. Click here to learn more about Real Connections.
