Camp counselor Melissa Ringwalt of Rowland Springs Baptist Church in Cartersville teaches the girls about life in Mozambique and how Southern Baptist missionaries are reaching the population with the Good News about Jesus Christ. Culture Camp, a session where the girls learn about international missions through interactive experiences, is a long-standing highlight of the week. Nearly 900 campers, a 9% increase from 2014, participated this year. JOE WESTBURY/Index
As 2015 draws to a close the year also brings a transition in the publication of The Christian Index. The issue sent out this week is the final edition of the bi-weekly 11” x 17” print format. Earlier this year we announced that we removed the pay wall to our online site to enable more readers to access content without a subscription. Effectively immediately that is the primary way to access Georgia Baptist news and feature information about how your Mission Georgia and Cooperative Program gifts are being used. Two new print editions will be available in early 2016. More information will be forthcoming. We invite you to enjoy this look back over the covers of The Christian Index for 2015, and look forward to seeing you online and through our social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, and LinkedIn.
