Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the staff of the American Baptist Churches of Vermont & New Hampshire.
The Region office will be closed December 24 – January 4 for the Christmas Holiday.
HELP NEEDED – CALLING ALL WRITERS:
In preparation for our Annual Meeting in May, 2015, Rev. Dale Edwards will be calling on our Region to enter into 60 Days of Prayer for our Region, beginning March 2nd. As part of that, a devotion booklet is being prepared using the Psalms of Ascent (Psalms 120-134). Many of our retired pastors have contributed reflections, but we are still in need of 15 reflections. If you would like to write a reflection on one of the Psalms of Ascent, please contact Malcolm Hamblett right away for details and Psalm assignment.
All reflections need to be submitted by mid-January. Contact Malcolm at 802-824-6913 or email@example.com.

The December 2014 e-Newsletter is filled with inspiration for the Christmas season as well as the total for this year’s Annual Appeal. (Note: It’s surprising–in a good way!)
There are several new pastors around the Region and we hope to feature each one here on the Region’s website and say WELCOME (albeit, belatedly) and thank them for the energy and love that they pour into God’s work.
First up is Rev. Craig Ray:
Pastor Craig received his Bachelor degree in Ministry from Antioch School of Church Planting and Leadership Development. It was through this education experience and his hands-on internship at the Antioch Community Church of Minneapolis, MN (Where he married his Wife Brianna) that his skills and passion for church renewal were developed.
Upon returning to New England, Craig’s desire grew to help churches thrive. He also established a relationship that he will maintain with an organization dedicated to church renewal in New England called Overseed. Craig grew up in Maine and spent the last three years in Massachusetts so he understands the culture of New England.
Craig possesses a strong passion for ensuring that churches are founded on the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. He has a joy for increasing his knowledge of God’s Word, preaching, teaching and developing leaders within the church.
Welcome and God bless, Rev. Ray!
