Area Gatherings

 

Each year, congregations across the ABT Synod are invited to gather together to worship, read the Word, pray, and have conversations, as well as enjoy good food and fellowship. Bring a car load from your congregation to share your stories and celebrations, to connect with others in your Area, and share your Mission in Ministry. All are welcome!
