WOM – Women on Mission
Meets second Monday of each month at 1:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall.
A full schedule of activities for WMU can be found on our church calendar Online
All women are welcome, invited, and encouraged to come. At the meetings we learn about and pray for Southern Baptist Missionaries ministering throughout the world.
We work on many different mission projects—some involve the entire church. Several recent projects include: making prayer quilts, Bible verse pillow cases for a local women’s and children’s shelter, coloring packets for children waiting in hospital emergency rooms, and organizing the FBCB Operation Christmas Child shoebox drive.
WOM is a great way for women to fellowship and get to know one another better while serving the Lord.
Year Round Mission Support
WMU is Mission minded because a mission minded lifestyle is LIFE CHANGING!
The important thing is that all people have the opportunity to radically participate in the mission of God.
WMU is committed to Mission Support.
Throughout the year our team of women help to coordinate fundraisers within our community to support mission work around the world. Twice a year, WMU emphasizes specific Mission Support opportunities: The Lottie Moon Christmas offering for International Missions and the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions.
Christmas and Easter are significant holidays celebrating the work of Jesus Christ in the lives of believers. That makes these two times of the year the ideal times to focus on Mission and Mission support.
