Women On Mission

WOM’s 2020 theme is Unshakable Pursuit.
Is our pursuit of Christ unshakable?
Is our pursuit to show His love unshakable?
Is our pursuit of those who do not know Him unshakable?

 

We pursue this journey through prayer, Bible study, and living our belief that each person we meet is a child of God.
We are reminded by Jesus in John 13:34, ‘ A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: Just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.’ Consider pairing with a friend to pray together once a week in February and/or March. You might also want to share a Bible passage that has drawn your attention during the week.
I am honored to serve as WMU Director. Each woman in our church participates in the work of Women on Mission in some way, as an individual or together in a group. I invite each of you to participate in a group meeting, activity, project, or mission effort. Individually we can make a positive difference; together we can accomplish great things.
Let’s make February 9, WMU Focus Sunday, an awesome day for everyone! Each woman is invited/encouraged/begged to sing in the choir that morning. (Just show up in the choir room at 10:10 with a smile.)
You are an awesome child of God!
