WMU's main purpose is to educate and involve adults, youth, children, and preschoolers in the cause of Christian missions. Although originally geared towards women, girls, and preschoolers, both genders are active participants in WMU Organizations and ministries today.
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and
mind. this is the first and greatest commandment.
And the second is like it: Love your neighbor."

Operation Christmas Child Shoebox collection is held every year in November. Check the association calendar for collection dates.
We want boys and girls around the world to know that God loves them. Children need great joy now more than ever. Most of all, they need the hope found only in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Will you partner with us to share that glorious hope with boys and girls around the world—many of whom have never heard the Name of Jesus? Visit samaritanspurse.org for more information.

This annual observance is the means for promoting understanding and sympathy, and for drawing together Baptist women around the world. It’s a beautiful picture of how we, as Baptist women on the global scale, link arms and stand together in solidarity. We need each other!

Meetings are held on the first Monday of the following months: February, April, June, August, October and December.
