Hey BRN Family, Elizabeth here and it’s time for the February Top 5!

#1- The Annual Church Profile (ACP) enables the Baptist Resource Network to gather basic information from our churches and is critical for partnership support. The easiest way for each church to submit the information is directly online at www.sbcworkspace.com or through Survey Monkey. Please contact the BRN at helpdesk@brnunited.org if you need assistance. The deadline is February 15. Thank you!

#2- What if this pandemic season we’ve been going through is not an interruption but a disruption? What if it’s not a temporary time brought on by circumstances beyond our control, but rather a transition brought about by the one Who is in control? Those are the questions Pastor Dan Nold of Calvary Church will examine during a Feb. 17 webinar, entitled, “Pivot: Leadership for the Next Chapter.” Pastors are invited to the virtual conversation at this link.

#3- The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering and Week of Prayer is March 7-14. One hundred percent of gifts are used to support Southern Baptist missionaries serving across the United States and Canada. Offering materials were mailed out earlier, but if your church needs additional prayer guides or envelopes, please contact us at the Helpdesk at helpdesk@brnunited.org.

#4- February is Black History Month, and we give thanks to God for the work He has done in bringing unity among African American and Anglo pastors here in the Philadelphia area and beyond. Did you know Sunday, February 7, has been designated as George Liele Church Planting, Evangelism, and Missions Sunday? Celebrate the life of George Liele and other great African American heroes of the faith who have advanced God’s Kingdom! Resources, including videos, promotional pieces and a children and family activities book, can be found at www.imb.org/heroesoffaith.

#5- The Baptist Resource Network has a new podcast, “50 Stories of Transformation.” This series, told in honor of the Baptist Resource Network’s 50th anniversary, highlights the many ways God has moved throughout Pennsylvania, South Jersey and beyond. Listen today on Spotify, Google podcasts, Breaker, and anchor.fm, among others!

That’s all for February. Thanks for watching, BRN Family. We appreciate you and we are thankful for you!
