Baptist churches and institutions are encouraged to observe Baptist World Alliance (BWA) Day on February 4 or 5, 2017, depending on whether they worship on Saturday or Sunday.
The observance is aimed at affirming Baptist identity within the worldwide Christian family. Baptists are encouraged to pray for each other and to renew their commitment to cooperate with Baptists globally through the BWA.
The 2017 BWA Day worship materials have been prepared by Karen Gwynn Massey, associate dean for Masters Degree Programs and associate professor of Christian Education and Faith Development at the McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, in the United States. She is the holder of the Watkins Christian Foundation Chair at that institution.
Worship resources are available online on the BWA website. Various language translations will be added in due course.
Congregations and institutions are encouraged to share stories of their observance and worship experience by emailing PandD@bwanet.org.
