    2015 — ABWM Celebrates 100th Anniversary of American Baptist Ministry with Girls

    May 5, 2015
    American Baptist Women’s Ministries has launched a year-long celebration in 2015 of the 100th anniversary of American Baptist ministry with girls, first organized as World Wide Guild. In 1915, Helen Barrett Montgomery, Lucy W. Peabody, and Martha MacLeish envisioned thousands of Baptist girls being united in a world-wide organization that would encourage their spiritual growth and leadership development while nurturing their desire to serve others. Alma Noble was chosen as the first executive secretary of World Wide Guild. The first chapter of World Wide Guild was organized in Nobel’s home church, Prospect Avenue Baptist Church in Buffalo, New York.
