"Let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest-time, if we will not give up." Galatians 6:9
Dear American Baptists (AB) Pastors and Church Leaders in the Greater Bay Area,
We know that planning events for your churches and ministerial associations takes a lot of work, and often times you find out late in the planning that there is another event planned for the same day that may draw a similar group of participants.
In an effort to help avoid some of these conflicts and to also foster greater ministry collaboration and collegiality within the AB family, an online Google calendar has been created entitled:
"Greater Bay Area American Baptist Master Calendar of Events"
We have various American Baptist groups who minister in the Greater Bay Area participating in this calendar by posting their events:
Evergreen Association, American Baptist Churches of Oregon (ABCO), ABC Northern California Association, Pacific Coast Baptist Association (PCBA), Ministers Council of the Greater Bay Area (MCGBA), Northern California Asian American Baptist Caucus/Alliance, Redwood Glen Camp, ABW - Amerian Baptist Women - East Bay, ABW of the West, Seafarer's Ministry, American Baptist Seminary of the West (ABSW)
CLICK HERE to view the calendar.
#1: If you do not want to go through the ABSW website each time to view the calendar, you have two options:
a. once you get to the calendar, save that URL to your "Favorites" and you can then link directly to the calendar that way.
b. if you are a user of Google calendars, once you get to the calendar, you will see an icon on the bottom right corner of your screen. If you click on that icon, you will see the option to add this calendar to your Google calendar list.
#2: We do not currently have the capacity to post individual church events on the calendar. Each of the groups listed above has a calendar point person. If you wish to post your church event for the purpose of inviting other AB folks, please request one of the groups above to post the event on your behalf.
#3: If you are a representative of a group that ministers with American Baptist clergy and/or churches in the Greater San Fransico Bay Area and would like to post your event to this calendar, please contact the Calendar Administrator.
