Women on Mission

 
 
 
Women on Mission (formerly Women’s Missionary Union or WMU) is a group of women meeting together to grow spiritually, learn about missions and do missions. We meet the first Wednesday evening of each month at 7:00 pm.
 
We encourage all to pray for the missionaries whose birthdays are on the Prayer Calendar in our magazine "Missions Mosaic". 
 
We organize the setting of goals and the collection donations for various special worldwide mission offerings, such as Foreign Missions (Lottie Moon Christmas Offering); Home Missions (Annie Armstrong Easter Offering), and State Missions (Alma Hunt Offering.)
 
We also participate in various projects throughout the year such as: 
  •      Supporting the C.B.M. Ministry (Rolling Chapel) monthly
  •      Campus Crusade for Christ, International (monthly)
  •      Send Christmas gifts to Lynchburg Training Center and the women of Goochland Correctional Center
  •      We sponsor and help collect food for the Culpeper Food Closet
  •      We help send children to the CBM Camp
  •      We also send shoes boxes filled with Christmas presents through the "Samaritans Purse" Program, sponsored by Franklin Graham      Ministries
Women on Mission have the opportunity to go to mission meetings throughout the year at different churches, also to the State meeting. We rejoice in the opportunity to become mentors to young women.
