Women’s Missionary Union
“For we are God’s fellow workers” (1 Corinthians 3:9, NKJV)
Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) is an organization dedicated to supporting missions through praying, studying, teaching, donating time and money, and participating in projects that benefit many people. During the year, our members have numerous opportunities to attend various retreats and mission studies. The WMU also sponsors several church wide special offerings during the year. These include the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions.
The WMU at FBCM is organized into three different groups, meant to meet the interests of all women ages 18 and older. Contact the church office to find out more about getting connected to one of the groups listed below.
Avis Dempsey Group: This group sets aside time at 10:00am on the third Wednesday of each month to pray for each other, church concerns, and the needs of the community.
Contemporary Baptist Women (CBW): This group meets at 6:30pm on the first Wednesday of each month at the church. They sponsor semi-annual dinners for missions and a variety of community helps for those in need.
Night Baptist Women: This group meets at 7:00pm on the Monday evening following the third Sunday of each month. The meetings are held in a home of one of the group members. Each meeting consists of a devotional, prayer, a program, and a time for fellowship with refreshments. Mission emphases for this group include the Operation Christmas Child with Samaritan’s Purse, Jail Ministry, Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center, Klothes4Kids, Patrick Henry Family Services, Angel Tree, and other local community ministries. We always welcome new members!
