American Baptist Churches of New York State is made up of individuals, individuals who have a story on how the Region and Region programs have impacted their lives. So for 2017, we are showcasing a few of them. Here are their stories, in their words.
**Brochures were mailed to churches March 17 - if you did not receive one, please contact Christy Siau at firstname.lastname@example.org**
· [Coming soon] Pass out the Region Offering Sharing Calendar (below) to each family in your congregation. By following the calendar, each family will gather coins based on each day’s theme. This file is printed on 8x14 paper.
· [Coming soon] Print out the 2017 Region Offering poster (below). Printing out one (or more) can help your church keep track on how they're doing towards their goal. Instructions for the poster are located on the second page of the file. This file is printed on 8x14 paper.
