WOMEN ON MISSION is the name of the Women’s Mission Union ministry organization for adult women age 18 and older.
OUR PRIMARY FOCUS is to keep our church informed about on-going mission work in our church, our association, the United States through the North American Mission Board, and around the world through the International Mission Board. As the church learns about mission work, we lead the church to participate in mission offerings to fund the work: Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, and the Kathleen Mallory State Mission Offering.
WOMEN ON MISSION meets two times each month on the first and third Tuesday at 9:30 AM in our Fellowship Hall. At our meetings, we learn about and pray for the work of missionaries in the U.S.A., Canada, and around the world. We also learn of mission opportunities in Pell City and St. Clair County and get personally involved in meeting those needs. We want to infiltrate and reach our community with the love of Christ through activities that fit the talents and gifts of the women of this church.
EACH YEAR WE LEAD OUR CHURCH TO:
Participate in the Prayer Walk at local schools
Furnish extra school supplies to teachers at local schools
Collect can ” pull tabs” to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham
Recycle outdated Sunday School material to the Associational office — to be shared with smaller churches
