American Baptist Women's Ministries is a diverse community of American Baptist women and girls serving in ministry in Christ's name. With local, area, region/state, and national levels of ministry, AB Women's Ministries creates a community of passionately faithful, mission-minded women and girls engaged in worship, service, and friendship.
The ABWM NYS is a Charitable Non-Profit Corporation/Organization under the umbrella of American Baptist Churches of NYS; which is under the umbrella of American Baptist Churches of USA. We have our very own ByLaws and operate as our own entity under the umbrella of ABC NYS.
All 38 states that participate in the organization have their own presiding President who represents their particular state at all local, national, and international conventions, bi-annual gatherings, and national meetings,
As the President my duties include conducting all meetings, develop all agendas for the year and oversee 52 women on the ABWM NYS Board as we host a State Convention each year.

Dear Sisters of the East,
It was a blessing to see so many of you on Saturday at our annual board meeting. Thank you for your kind words and again it has been a privilege and pleasure to serve ABWM, to serve you, represent you and get to know so many of you. I look forward to the day when we can meet in person.
Please invite your women to our annual meeting for ALL ABWM women on July 17. Info is at the end. I’m also attaching info about the ABGIRLS summer STEAM event. I helped last year in one of the Zoom break out rooms and the girls were engaged and had so much fun. They also had Bible Study and discussion. Scholarships are available.
THEME SCRIPTURES FOR Let the Walls Fall Down:
Ephesians 2:14, Micah 6:8 , Isaiah 1:17, John 13:34
Attached are the Candle lighting piece to use as our Monday prayer focus. You can use it at your meetings if you want to. I chose the scripture, wrote the prayer and adapted the litany from the prayer of St Francis of Assisi before we voted on the scriptures for our theme and then this was one of the scriptures we chose. That’s God at work! May we truly be instruments of God’s peace, mercy, justice, kindness and walk humbly with our God.
Micah 5:6, 8. (NRSV)
6. With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old?
8. He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
