Church Bulletin Inserts

Use these bulletin inserts to promote Baptist History in your congregation. Some can also be used for small group discussion.

Print out the bulletin on 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper to make a master sheet. (Using a smooth, bright white paper will give you a crisper image.) Photocopy doublesided, using your copier’s automatic settings or manually. Cut in half to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ insert size.

Preserving church resources

Is your church planning to celebrate an anniversary?

Church Anniversary Certificate

The American Baptist Historical Society would like to recognize your special event with a letter and personalized certificate for your congregation. The certificate can be sent directly to the church. Or, if a representative of the regional office is attending your celebration, the certificate can be mailed to their office.

To request a certificate, fill out the anniversary certificate request and fax or email it according to the instructions on the form or mail your request to ABHS Church Anniversary, 3001 Mercer University Dr., Atlanta, GA 30341.

Please request a certificate at least three weeks prior to your celebration to allow time for you to receive the certificate.

Your church might be eligible for the George Younger Award which is given for excellence in local or regional American Baptist history.  Click here, Younger Award criteria 2019, for more information and details on how to apply for this award.
