Updates from this Year
WMU had our Extended Leadership Team (ELT) meeting at the TBC on February 4th. During the meeting, our members were encouraged to send cards and gifts to our Missionary Kid’s (MK) for their birthday. We also discussed Children’s Ministry Day, the week of prayer for North American Missions/Annie Easter Offering, WMU churches partnering with African American churches in a missions project, our annual meeting, and the Missions Education and Outreach Conference.
Children’s Ministry Day was Saturday, February 18th. Many of our WMUs provided opportunities for our children, youth, and teens to be involved in missions and share the love of Christ in their communities. Youth at LFBC helped with a ladies luncheon for single moms, widows, and veterans the prior week and were encouraged to follow up with letters, etc. on the 18th. Other churches provided meals, volunteered at non-profits, etc.
The Week of Prayer for North American Missions (NAMB) was March 5th-12th. The theme was “Together for His Kingdom.” WMU promoted the day of prayer in our churches and encouraged congregations to give to the offering. 100% of the offer goes towards support of North American missions.
The effort to connect WMU churches with African American churches for the purpose of partnering together for a missions effort is still in process, along with a possible quilt show to support the TBCH. We are excited about the possibility of collaborating with other churches to support the Lord’s work in our communities.
