What is WMU?
WMU is a Southern Baptist Organization which was first organized in 1888. At First Baptist, our WMU serves along side our MPACT ministries. We continue to support missionaries and missions through prayer, giving, and service.
PRAYER- WMU supports missionaries and missions through avid intercessory prayer.
GIVING- WMU supports the following offerings through giving to the Global Mission Fund:
• Lottie Moon (International Offering)
• Annie Armstrong (North American Offering)
• Janie Chapman (State Offering)
