The first observance of Baptist Men’s Day – in 1933 – marked the 25th anniversary of Royal Ambassadors. In 2006 the Southern Baptist Executive Committee changed the observance of Baptist Men’s Day to Father’s Day. Since that time the North American Mission Board’s Baptist Men On Mission has provided resources to celebrate Father’s Day as Baptist Men’s Day. We trust you will find these resources helpful as you honor the father’s in your church.
This year Father’s Day is Sunday, June 17. Because the observance of Baptist Men’s Day now falls on Father’s Day each year, your church may need to make an effort to recognize the single men in your congregation, too. These men should not be forgotten in your plans to recognize the work of men in the church.
Another way to honor men is through the message that their pastor will bring on BMEN Day. This sermon can be used as an outline and pastors can substitute their own illustrations and examples.
Take Dad to Work Day. This father-child event is designed to give your children a greater appreciation for your vocation, help them catch a vision for how God can use their skills in the future and allow for a fun time of fellowship.
