American Baptist Women (ABW)
Women are called within the Church to minister in today’s world. Programs and Circles meet throughout the year and serve the church and global community. Opportunity for service benefits the women of ABW as persons and the valuable mission projects to which the Church is committed. ABW provides opportunities for each woman to become and develop as God’s person, build God’s community, and serve God’s world. Some of their projects include serving meals for funerals, weddings and special receptions; serving in the community for Meals on Wheels, Church women United, Dayton Oaks Camp and Conference Center, Red Cross, River Hills School, Irving School, etc.; and giving financially to help with ABW projects.
