See the 2021 One Day: Serve Local Highlight Video at the bottom of this page!
On almost any given day throughout the year, Arkansas Baptist churches are actively meeting needs and sharing Jesus in their local communities. Imagine the Kingdom impact across our state if an opportunity existed for all ABSC churches to engage their communities in missions and evangelism on the exact same day. That opportunity is now a reality and we call it One Day: Serve Local.
One Day: Serve Local was launched in October 2020 in response to the decision to cancel the annual One Day Acts 1:8 Missions Experience due to Covid-19. At least 115 churches participated in the first Serve Local on October 2, 2020. Throughout the day they shared pictures, videos, and testimonies of their experiences on social media which was accessible to all churches through a shared hashtag. This created excitement and helped Arkansas Baptists understand they were participating in movement of God across our state. Of those registered, 72 churches reported the following:
- Members Serving 1,662
- Ministry Sites 267
- Gospel Conversations 1,269
- Salvations Recorded 72
Plan now to participate in this cooperative-missions effort as Arkansas Baptist churches meet needs and share Jesus in local communities across our state on Saturday, April 9, 2022.
