WMU

WMU OBJECTIVES:

  • Pray for missions.
  • Engage in mission action and witnessing.
  • Learn about and support missions.
  • Develop spiritually toward a missions lifestyle.
  • Participate in the work of the church and denomination.

Our desire is to help our church gain a greater understanding of the importance of missions, discipleship, and involvement.  A church involved in missions is a church that is a giving church, a going church and a praying church.


Our goal is to help lay a missions foundation in the lives of preschoolers, children, teenagers, and adults and then watch our church become a church that is having a profound impact on our community and the world for the cause of Christ.


WMU offers a wide variety of entry points including Bible studies and topical studies addressing issues like prayer, leadership, and missions involvement.  


We also support WorldCrafts artisans by purchasing their fair-trade handmade products, and providing clean water for missionaries and those with whom they work.


WMU provides ways for everyone - no matter his or her age, marital status, career, or education - to be involved.  We invite you to join us as individuals who are being transformed by God as they get more involved in missions.
