We are celebrating the 315th Anniversary of the Philadelphia Baptist Association. We will host our PBA Mission Banquet with the theme “Together Again” on November 12, 2022. We will gather at the Drexelbrook Event Center (4700 Drexelbrook Drive, Drexel Hill, PA) at 11:30 am.
As we gather, we will celebrate being the oldest continuing community of Baptist in the USA. At the event, in a variety of ways, we will lift up congregations with long tenures as members of the Association.
All PBA congregations are asked to fill at least one table (of 8) with church leaders/members, church historians, Young Adults, etc. Perhaps your congregation would like to include persons providing key leadership/support during the Covid 19 period of isolation and say thank you to them by purchasing their ticket.
Our Guest Speaker is the Rev. Dr. Priscilla E. Eppinger, Executive Director of the American Baptist Historical Society. This will be a fun filled event with Gospel-Jazz musicians and great food. Provisions will be made for our safety, masks are welcomed, and registration with emergency contact information for all participants will be required.
Donations for luncheon tickets are $45.00 per adult and $25 per child. The registration deadline for the banquet is Monday, October 24, 2022. Please encourage your church family to attend and help celebrate our 315 years together. Please see the flyer enclosed for additional information. We look forward to your participation.
