A Church of Faith, Fellowship, and Love

WMU

The Women’s Missionary Union (WMU)  is our ladies’ mission organization.
 
  • Purpose:  To discover the joy of missions
  • Goal:  To encourage our Church to reach beyond its walls to our community, town county, state, nation and world.
  • Vision:  To grow our relationship with our Heavenly Father and become the missionary God desires each of us to be.
The WMU consist of a Council, Women’s Groups, GA’s and Mission Friends.
 

We have two WMU groups that meet each month:

  1. The Bernice Lane missionary group is a group of middle aged women who learn about missions so they can minister. This group meets the 2nd  Monday of each month at 7:00 PM at members homes.
  2. The Ethel Wilson mission group is a mixed aged group of women who have a heart for missions. This group meets in members homes the 1st Monday of each month at 7:00 PM.

GA’s, Mission Friends and RA’s

Meet each Wednesday night after Family Night Supper at 6:45 p.m.  Children have an opportunity to discover what missions work is and how they can become involved.
