Georgia Baptists send more than $30M to SBC in past 12 months to get the gospel to the nations

Georgia | November 1, 2021

Georgia Baptists have sent more than $30.4 million to the Southern Baptist Convention over the past year to get the gospel to the nations.

“This shows just how committed Georgia Baptists are to the cause of Christ,” said David Melber, chief operating officer for the Georgia Baptist Mission Board. “Our churches and our people have given sacrificially to make sure everyone has an opportunity to hear the gospel.”

The total given between October 1 and September 30 for use outside the state of Georgia was $30,462,390. That includes $15,430,284 through the Cooperative Program, $9,698,461 to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, and $5,333,645 to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering.

“You have to keep in mind that the world was in the throes of a pandemic throughout this reporting period,” Melber said. “In such a time, with people around the world dying from COVID-19, our churches could see just how urgently the world needs Jesus, and they responded with this incredible show of generosity.”..

RNC, Paris Dennard Open Black American Engagement Center in College Park

Georgia | October 21, 2021

Building on what they call “positive gains made with Black voters,” the Republican National Committee is opening a Black American Engagement Center outside Atlanta in College Park, Ga. The RNC insists that it is serious about engaging in strategic and sustained Black voter engagement.

RNC National Spokesperson and Director of Black Media Affairs, Paris Dennard, said the re-opening of party offices branded as “community centers” is a sign of that commitment. “We use the summit centers as an opportunity for us to do specific sustained engagement,” he explained. “This Wednesday, we’ll be in College Park re-opening. And I use the term re-opening because while we are in different locations, this is not just the first time we’ve been present.” Dennard explained the party had a Black outreach center in Mableton and attends to open many more around the nation. The Republican party opened a similar center earlier this year in Cleveland. McClatchy previously reported the leases on the prior centers expired at the end of the 2020 election cycle. Dennard said the party’s engagement will run through the 2022 midterm cycle. He also noted that the party recently opened a center to engage Asian and Pacific Islander voters in Georgia. According to Dennard, these centers serve as a place for potential voters to gather, engage and connect with the party.

“We know that there are Black Republicans, and we are not a monolith when it comes to our vote bloc,” he said. “And so we use it as a place where people could come and get information.”… (Excerpts from the Atlanta Daily World)

Democrats fret as longshot candidates pull money, attention 

Georgia, Kentucky | October 14, 2021

Longshot challengers to Democrats’ most reviled Republican foes are starting to be seen as threats by some in their own party who fear they are distracting from midterm efforts to protect the majority. Just over a year out from what will be a referendum on President Biden’s first two years in office, Democratic strategists are expressing frustration that a handful of candidates looking to oust some of the GOP’s most high-profile incumbents – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) among them – in deep red areas are using valuable resources that could otherwise be used to strengthen the party’s hand in more competitive races…. (Excerpts from The Hill)

Newt Gingrich: GOP will win in 2022 by targeting Democrats as ‘big government socialists’

Georgia | September 16, 2021

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Wednesday that Republicans can’t afford to blow a once-in-a-generation campaign opportunity to tag all congressional Democrats as “big government socialists” by supporting President Biden’s $3.5 trillion social welfare spending package.

“To have an issue of this size involving $3½ trillion in spending and about $3 trillion in taxes, and to have every single Democrat having voted lockstep in favor of it, gives you a weight of argument unlike anything I’ve seen in recent years,” Mr. Gingrich said in an interview with The Washington Times… (Excerpts from the Washington Times)

Trump announces rallies in Georgia, Iowa as 2024 speculation mounts 

Georgia, Iowa | September 8, 2021

Former President Donald Trump will hold two more campaign-style rallies in the coming weeks — one in Georgia and one in Iowa — as speculation continues to grow that he will make yet another run for the White House in 2024. Trump’s Save America PAC announced Tuesday night that the 45th president will hold a rally in Perry, Ga., approximately 100 miles south of Atlanta, on Sept. 25. A few minutes later, the organization announced that Trump would speak in Des Moines, Iowa on Oct. 9. The events will be the fourth and fifth rallies Trump has held since leaving office in January. He previously drew crowds in Ohio, Florida and Alabama. Trump’s visit to Georgia will mark his first appearance there since Republicans lost both of the state’s US Senate seats in a pair of special elections in January, handing Democrats full control of Congress and the White House…(Excerpts from the New York Post)
