Our next TAABA Clergy meetings will take place at the American Baptist Churches of Ohio Annual Gathering in Columbus October 4 and 5. From our Moderator Rev.

It's important for us all to be there to support the incoming ABC Ohio President, our own Rev. James Willis!" All of our ministers are invited to join together for a time of fellowship and planning for the upcoming TAABA events.

A very special night is planned for November 13 at Third Baptist Church (402 Pinewood Avenue, Toledo). We will gather at 4 PM for our second annual TAABA Variety Show and dinner. It will be a night of fun, laughter and joy!
The format will be the same as last year. We are asking each church to provide two "acts." Rev. Scott Weaver has graciously agreed to be our MC again this year, so you know it will be alot of fun! Rev. Jenny Jackson will be putting the program together, so please contact her with the name of your performer, and title of their act. It's never too early to start putting acts together!
We would love to have every church participate in the Variety Show. Plan now to be a part!
