WMU began the 2014 year with the same officers that we had in 2013. These officers are doing such a fine job that we voted to keep them the same as 2013. We have seen an increase in our attendance, largely due to appearances by Professor VonNutt at our Sunday morning services appealing to the ladies of the church to attend our meetings! WMU has been busy so far this year, having several mission projects in the works or completed. We contributed to the Ronald McDonald House and Hospice House in Huntington as well as Lily’s Place in Huntington. WMU continues our support of the Napier family in Uganda with monthly contributions. We also support the Wayne County Gideons and Spring Valley High School teen group. Beginning Mother’s Day through Father’s Day WMU is sponsoring the Baby Bottles of Blessing for a New Beginning Pregnancy Crisis Center and ask the whole church to get involved in this worthwhile project. We are planning a Mother’s Day outing for May 5 at 6:30 p.m. See any WMU member for details.
Since its beginning in 1888, Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) has become the largest Protestant missions organization for women in the world, with a membership of approximately 1 million. WMU’s main purpose is to educate and involve adults, youth, and children in the cause of Christian missions. WMU’s key Bible verse is 1 Corinthians 3:9, “For we are labourers together with God.” (KJV)
