Awakening is a new program we are offering to the smaller churches of the American Baptist Churches of Indiana and Kentucky. Designed for churches with an average attendance of under 110, Awakening will examine seven aspects of church life: Health, Transformation, Vision/Mission, Structure, Discipleship, Worship, and Stewardship. Pastors and three lay leaders will be invited from each of our smaller churches to participate in this 18 month emphasis. Along with the seven sessions we will provide additional resources for Bible study and sermon preparation plus provide a coach for each pastor for the duration of Awakening. This program will demand a lot from the participating churches, but it will also provide a lot. If you are a member of a church that averages 110 or less in the ABC of Indiana and Kentucky I encourage you to participate in Awakening. It will transform your church. The deadline for registering is fast approaching so I urge you to act now by going to http://www.abc-indiana.org/ for registration information.
