BPFNA Exhibiting at CBF, ABC Assemblies
June 30, 2007 | bpfna
(June 30, 2007) The BPFNA is participating in the national meetings of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF) and the American Baptist Churches USA (ABC), June 28 - July 2 in Washington, DC. The CBF General Assembly, June 28 and 29, concluded with a joint worship service that opened the ABC Biennial Meeting. The Biennial concludes on Monday, July 2. BPFNA is getting acquainted with delegates and visitors to both meetings and providing a number of important and timely resources for sale in our exhibit booths.
BPFNA also hosted a "Peace Breakfast", traditionally held at each ABC Biennial. This year's speakers were Rev. Dr. DeeDee Coleman of Detroit, MI, who is the recipient of this year's ABC Dahlberg Peace Award, and Rev. Dr. Larry Greenfield, Executive Minister of the ABC Metro Chicago Region. The text of their messages will be available soon on our website.
