Aligned with American Baptist values, American Baptist Home Mission Societies’ (ABHMS) “Discipleship Matters” topical inserts are available for free download for inclusion in church bulletins.
Covering a variety of subjects—including children, education, discipleship and family life—these practical, downloadable inserts are produced with black-and-white typeface and limited graphics for cost-effective, efficient and ecologically friendly printing and copying.
Based on a theme—such as nature’s seasons or highlights from the church calendar—each insert features brief, easily digestible articles, related scripture and other famous quotables. Subjects range from suggestions for parents and other caregivers to tips on Christian education and discipleship formation, all presented in an interculturally sensitive manner.
