Women's Missionary Union

 The primary focus of First Baptist's WMU is to increase awareness of and encourage participation in missions & evangelism in our church by providing a combination of missions emphases, activities, and opportunities for involvement in individual missions groups. Our goals are to provide missions and witnessing opportunities, support missions financially and with prayer, provide missions learning opportunities, enable spiritual development toward a missions lifestyle, and promote involvement in missions events at the local, state and national levels.


 

Join us as we host the WMU Missions Encounter and Annual Meeting for 2018.  This is a great opportunity to learn about missions taking place in South Carolina and beyond.  At this free conference, you will have the opportunity to visit a refugee simulation, exhibits, WMU book store, and classes pertaining to missions. 

 The event is FREE.

 Jason’s Deli will be served for lunch on Friday, March 23rd.  The cost for a lunch ticket is $8 and must be reserved by March 10th.  Reserve your ticket here.
