Our 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 team met on July 27, 2019 to make plans for the 2019/2020 church year. The WMU Emphasis for 2019-2020 is Unshakable Pursuit. The critical issue is “Refugees”.
Our Watchword is, “My dear friends, stand firm and don’t be shaken. Always keep busy working for the Lord. You know that everything you do for Him is worthwhile.” (1 Corinthians 15:58 CEV).
