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

What an incredible time of year this is as we prepare to gather with our families and give thanks for all the blessings we receive every day from our Heavenly Father. In December we will celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. How fortunate we are to have this relationship with our Father in Heaven.

On the first Monday in November, women will come together all over the world to pray. The Baptist Women’s World Day of Prayer happens every year. It is organized by the Baptist World Alliance. It is our responsibility to tell people about the needs of women to pray for them.

Why do we do this? We know God answers prayer. When many women of the world turn to God at one time, it is POWERFUL. Lives are changed. WE encourage and celebrate unity in Christ among Baptist women of the world through prayer and service. Are you chasing the God who chases us?

In Christ,
Leslie Baker
