WMU

wmu-225x225Our WMU Objectives Are:

Pray for Missions
Engage in mission action and witnessing
Learn about and support missions
Develop spiritually toward a missions lifestyle
Participate in the work of the church and denomination

Our theme for the year 2016-2017 is ABy All Means@ and our watchword is I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel that I might share in its blessings. (I Corinthians 9:22b-23)  Every year there are many ministry opportunities for the Women on Mission to network together for outreach ministry.
