America for Christ Offering 2021


The America for Christ Offering 2021 campaign—“For the Purpose of Equipping Saints,” based on Ephesians 4:11-13—focuses on the discipleship and leadership empowerment ministries of the American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS). These ministries nurture the faithful followers who find their call and life’s work as the hands and feet of Christ.

Thanks to your America for Christ (AFC) Offering contributions, the ABHMS supported communities distressed by the devastation of COVID-19 last year, as the pandemic swept our country and Puerto Rico. We helped families who lost homes to floods, wildfires and storms, along with children living on the edge because of poverty, and seminarians preparing to devote their lives to sharing the Good News.

Your contributions share God’s love by:

  • Cultivating Leaders — Strong leaders advance the mission of faith communities.
  • Equipping Disciples — Broadening the understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
  • Healing Communities — We believe the power of Christian love can—and will—change the world.

The AFC offering is being collected at First Baptist, Marion, IA, through April 2021. The goal is $500. You can give online through our church’s e-giving tool by clicking on this button and selecting AFC on the “To:” pulldown.

Please help us continue to bring healing and hope to communities, families, children and Jesus’ disciples in 2021 by supporting this year’s America for Christ Offering.
