100 years ago our global Baptist family stood together by giving the first Baptist World Aid gift to communities suffering in the aftermath of the Spanish Flu pandemic. One hundred years later, we are asking you – our Baptist sisters and brothers – to respond again to a global church that is suffering. As the Spirit moved in power at Pentecost, we invite you to stand together as a global family this Pentecost weekend (May 29-31). Imagine the mountains God will move if every Baptist church in every region of the world unites together in worship, stands together in prayer, and gives together to help those in need. You can participate by standing...
TOGETHER IN WORSHIP Encourage your church to participate online in the Friday and Saturday global worship experience featuring music, prayer, and testimonies from every region of the world.
TOGETHER IN FOCUS Commit to stand together with a global and suffering church during your worship service through an action of your choice such as a guided prayer time or a global focus in the sermon.
TOGETHER IN GIVING Designate a portion of your offering on Pentecost to the BWA to support the Standing Together Global Response Plan that has already reached more than 100,000 people in 50+ countries.
