Important Announcement on the ABA Messenger Meeting
Brethren, it is with great sadness that I announce that the Messenger Assembly of the Churches of the American Baptist Association will not meet this year in Springfield, MO. The Corona Virus Pandemic created the caution and cancellation of this event. Bro. Edgar N. Sutton and I, in consultation with the convention bureau and the hotels, reached this conclusion on May 1, 2020. The hotels will refund the one night you have been charged. However, please do not call the hotels. They have an understaffing problem and will make certain everyone receives their refund.
Thank you for understanding. We hope we are able to have our meeting in 2021. We will have further announcements about this at a later date.
We ask that you continue to send in your letters so we can still have an updated directory. Please send them to the Missions’ Office. We still have salaries to pay and other expenses.
