Our annual conference will be held May 31-June 1, 2018 at Smoke Rise Baptist Church in Stone Mountain, Georgia, and will focus on the theme "Baptist Women in the Twentieth Century: Missionaries, Mission Leaders, Churchwomen, Civil Rights Activists, and Ministers." Keynote speakers include Melody Maxwell, Molly Marshall, and Mandy McMichael, and Walter Shurden will speak at a breakfast gathering of the Fellowship of Baptist Historians.
Visitors to the auditorium are greeted by a Noah's ark and Jesus, life-size and complete with cross and crown of thorns, made from balloons by a group of self-described "balloonatics."
