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

Can you believe it is FALL? Our WOM groups are in full swing. The leadership team is working together until we can welcome our new director. For those of you who have not heard, Margaret Honeycutt has accepted our invitation to become our new director starting in January. I know how you have supported me and our mission projects and that you will continue that support for Margaret and the team.
A question we should ask ourselves is, “Are we meeting the critical needs in our community, state, and the world?” Women’s Missionary Union addresses these issues daily through: Project Help-Refugees, World Crafts, Health Care and Clean Water-Pure Water Pure Love. We also help with these crisis through our special offerings. World Hunger day is coming up on October 13th and we address this issue in our monthly support of the food pantry at FISH. WOM are always open to your suggestions of how we can help meet other problems in our community. I want to thank everyone who supported the GAs church wide summer mission project. Your pocket change totaled $238.78. The girls will shop for items needed by our wounded Vets at the Hampton Veterans Hospital.
Our mission groups extend an invitation to all women in our church family to come and join or just visit any of our three groups. We meet the second Tuesday each month. These meetings, with location and times, are also listed in the bulletin. Blessings, Leslie Baker and WOM the Leadership Team
