May Benevolence – Blood: Water Mission

Blood:Water Mission is a community, motivated by the love of Christ, to create lasting change in Africa. We give our lives to serve local leaders and join them in the fight to end the HIV/AIDS and water crises.  Since our launch in 2004, Blood:Water has raised over $27 million through the creative efforts of tens of thousands of individuals seeking to make a difference. We believe that Africa holds the leadership, creativity, passion and resolve necessary to address the HIV/AIDS and water crises. That’s why we’ve spent the past ten years working alongside more than a dozen African organizations to bring clean water and HIV/AIDS support to 1 million people in 11 countries (taken from their web-site).

THE SHAPE OF OUR FAMILY

Join the ABCNJ Regional Ministry team on May 17, 24, & 31 at 7PM as it leads an exploration of our American Baptist family.  This three week class will help us better understand our family connections, and the peculiar nature of how Baptists “work.”  Ponder the associational principal, explore our role in ordaining pastors, and see how our relationships are impacting the Kingdom of Christ across the globe!
