Change a Life. Change the World.
Woman’s Missionary Union® is an organization which strives to challenge Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God. Since its beginning in 1888, WMU has been true to its basic purpose: missions.
WMU strives to meet Christians' needs and interests by providing missions information, resources, organizations, and opportunities. WMU, through its Web sites, hopes to encourage and enable Christians to become involved in missions, both individually and as a member of a Christian group. WMU has provided missions-related information online since 1996.
The women of Faulkville Baptist Church are proud to be affiliated with WMU and its missions. Please join us for fellowship and fun as we work together to help others, while sharing the love of Christ. We meet monthly on the second Thursday at 7:00 p.m. - visit the Church Calendar for meeting details.
Our Faulkville Baptist WMU ladies group has proudly participated in many different outreach efforts over the years. We have reached out to the homeless, pregnancy centers to support-life-affirming choices and promote healthy relationships by serving and caring for women and families in pregnancy-related circumstances, collected food for families during the holiday season, made gift boxes for our military serving over-seas, along with many other projects.
As outreach efforts arise, details will be posted here as well as in the Weekly Church Bulletins - please be a part of these outreach efforts if you are able. You will surely feel blessed by being a part of such wonderful projects.
Annually, we support several missions:
Who is Annie Armstrong? Each year, we honor the life and work of Annie Walker Armstrong (1850-1938) when we give to the annual offering for North American missions named after her. As a tireless servant of God and a contagious advocate and supporter of mission efforts throughout the world, Annie Armstrong led women to unite in mission endeavors that ultimately led to the formation of Woman's Missionary Union, for which she served as the first corresponding secretary. Annie rallied churches to give more, pray more, and do more for reaching people for Christ. As we continue to unite to make her vision a reality in North America today, we can be confident that her legacy will also be ours. This offering takes place near the Easter holiday.
What is the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering? The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering supplements Cooperative Program giving to support more than 5,000 Southern Baptist missionaries as they share the Gospel overseas. The focus is on celebrating what God has done in recent years, praising Him for allowing Southern Baptists to be a part of His work, while emphasizing that reaching those who remain untouched by the Gospel is a doable task, but these will be the hardest people groups to reach—requiring that believers pray, go, partner and give as never before! Southern Baptist churches collect the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for the sole purpose of supporting international missions. Every penny of the offering goes to the International Mission Board’s overseas budget, thus supporting our missionaries and their work.
What is the State Missions Season of Prayer and Offering? It is an annual emphasis drawing the Georgia Baptist family together for concerted prayer for our state and for the ministries and mission work of the Georgia Baptist Convention. Where does my money go? Gifts to the State Missions Offering are at work every day in evangelistic and mission efforts across our state. Statistics show that more than 70% of the population of Georgia are unreached by the gospel. Your gifts make it possible for people to be reached with the Good News of Jesus Christ. This offering takes place annually in early fall.
PRAY… for the ministries that are touching lives across Georgia, and how God can use you.
GIVE… to the Mission Georgia Offering which supports ministry, missions, and evangelism in Georgia.
GO… make a difference each day as you share Jesus everywhere you go.
