What IS WMU, you say?


It was 1888. A group of ladies decided that not only did they want to pray for missionaries, but they wanted to help them with their physical needs!! May in Richmond, Virginia, is beautiful, and these ladies were ready to get things going! They were very Baptist about this and organized a committee- the Executive Committee of the Woman's Mission Societies, Auxilary to Southern Baptist Convention. They knew how to do it right! They adopted a constitution, elected officers, chose Baltimore, Maryland, as the headquarters, and got Annie Armstrong as their first treasurer. You have to keep those financial records straight, you know. Annie was on fire! Not only did she write many, many letters to get support to send to home missionaries, she collected clothes in barrels and sent them to American Indian children. Boots on the ground. With the Lord's many blessings and direction, we've come a long way, baby!! Headquarters are now in Birmingham, Alabama, and WMU is the largest Protestant missions organization for women in the world. Yes, I said the WORLD. There are over 1,000,000 of us!! What do we do? I'm glad you asked. Here is what Indian Springs Baptist Church WMU does..........
 
WMU Purpose:
  • To learn about missions
  • To pray for and give to missions
  • To develop spiritually toward a missions lifestyle
  • To do missions
  • To support the mission work of our church and denomination

When do we meet, you ask?
  • Hill Road WMU meets the third Thursday in each month.
  • Glenwood Women on Missions meets the first Tuesday in each month.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Matthew 28: 29-30
