Women On Mission

Our WOM challenge this year is for Christ followers to:

  • Follow His example
  • Step into the world around us
  • Cultivate relationships
  • Create opportunities to demonstrate the love of Christ by all means possible

As Christmas approaches, our Women on Mission get busy helping decorate our church by putting up the Chrismon tree with our amazing handmade ornaments. These ornaments help Christians to remember that Christmas is the celebration of Jesus’s birthday. The word Chrismon is a combination of Christ and monogram (meaning symbol). All of the ornaments are Christian symbols.

We will also set up our Lottie Moon Post Office. Instead of sending your cards to your church family through USPS bring them here and help keep our international missionaries in the field. The postage is the same as last year, thirty-five cents per card. We support international, state and national missionaries through your giving and prayer.

In January, we focus on the Biblical basis of living on mission.
1. What are we commanded to do? Matthew 28:18-20,
2. What is our responsibility? 1John 3:16 & Matthew 23:11-12,
3. What does living a mission lifestyle mean? Romans 12:1-2, Colossians 2:6-8 and Philippians 2:12-13,
4. Are there resources for obeying God’s command to missions? Psalm 25:4-5, James 1:5

Use these questions and answers from the Bible to figure out how you can be effective in reaching others with the gospel. Your Women on Mission would like to thank the church family for their support of the Alma Hunt State Mission Special Offering.

The Acteens will also continue studying about refugees. They will also begin the mission projects for the new year.

Please continue to support and pray for our children as they become more involved in missions. We are still in need of a GA Leader. If God is leading you toward this amazing opportunity, come and talk to Leslie Baker.
