WMMU is where Woman’s Missions & Ministry Unite

 

WMMU Team Report –  April 2017

Women’s Missions and Ministry United Women’s Conference at Turkey Creek Baptist Church in Pisgah Forest.  We so appreciate Turkey Creek allowing us to have our TBA WMMU Women’s Conference at their church.  We also appreciate their Baptist Men who have volunteered to cook a large breakfast for us, serving beginning at 7:45 am that morning.  We would appreciate all ladies high school age and up letting the Baptist Center office (877-3203) know if you can attend by April 20 if possible. WMMU had a meeting of all churches interested, all Conference speakers and the WMMU team Tuesday, February 21 at 1:00 pm.  We planned, shared and prayed.  At the WMU meeting, we were asked to announce to the TBA churches the need for men and/or women to join with the Light and Hope Ministry for a time of prayer with ladies in the Light and Hope community from 10:00-11:00 am each Saturday morning.  If interested, please contact Brenda Harrell.  Also needed at Dunn’s Rock, are people to help with preschoolers through high schoolers on Sunday evenings from 5:00-6:00 pm each Sunday.  If interested in helping, please contact Dewey & Kathie Aiken.  At the WMMU meeting, we also shared many of the other mission opportunities for our churches to select to participate.  Sanctity of Human Life (baby bottle collections for the Center for Women), Baptist Men’s Day (Baptist Men’s breakfast); WMU Heck Jones offering week of prayer and missions extravaganza; the week of prayer and offerings for Annie Armstrong Home Missions was the first week of March. Cliff Jenkins from NAMB, church planting in the Pittsburg area, shared on March 14 with our pastors, “GO” mission team and anyone else interested about the needs of church planters in the Pittsburg area.  Baptist Aging Ministry plans to sponsor a training at the Baptist Center and gave out 6 smoke detectors to those attending.  Brochures and information regarding many of the other mission opportunities were also handed out. The month of April, we focus on NC Baptist Children’s Home needs.  The list of needs can be found at www.bchfamily.org.  Deadline to have items to the Baptist Center is April 27.  In May, there is, as mentioned earlier, the WMMU Women’s Conference, the National Day of Prayer, White Squirrel Festival, WMU leadership rally and training, Senior Adult Sunday, Mother’s Day, Baptist Association emphasis & week of prayer and many other opportunities.  We are in the planning stages of setting up a weekly time to pray for our TBA pastors and churches.  We will be sending out an email with info soon.  Also, we will put this information on the TBA website.

Lovingly submitted by, Jan Miller – WMMU Team Leader

NC Baptist State Convention – Embrace for Women –http://www.ncbaptist.org

“Embrace is a ministry of the BSCNC that seeks to encourage women to walk humbly with Christ in their world and build strong families capable of creating a legacy of faithfulness.

What is Embrace?

Embrace is a comprehensive disciple-making ministry model of the BSCNC that finds its foundations in two key passages of Scripture: Matthew 28:19-20 and Titus 2:3-5. In Matthew 28 Jesus gives His followers the command and commission to make disciples. Making disciples includes engaging women in Gospel conversations and seeing them profess Christ as Lord and Savior and then teaching them the things of God so they grow in their walk with Christ, and continue the disciple-making process. This happens as women live a life on mission recognizing disciple-making happens in their everyday lives.

“A woman who fears the Lord will be praised…” Proverbs 31:30

Vision

Embrace God’s call to pray for and minister to women, their families and future generations for the building up of Christ’s Kingdom.

Mission

Embrace responds to God’s call and design for women to live in intimacy with Christ as they serve Him through the local church to prayerfully care for and develop evangelism, discipleship and missions in women leaving a legacy for future generations.

Embrace and Women’s Evangelism and Discipleship finds its biblical foundations in Titus 2:3-5. As Titus was told to have the older women teach and train the younger women, still today it is necessary for the older women to invest in the lives of younger women. The curriculum outlined in the Titus 2 passage focuses on a woman’s behavior, attitudes, speech and thought. Paul encourages generational connections as he admonishes Titus to find mature women in Christ to disciple younger women. The areas of growth in Christ, family life, and actions and attitudes are areas Paul identifies as needing to reflect the glory of God.

Our intents are…

A Christian woman’s lifestyle should naturally encompass each of these three intents. One cannot be separated from the other, but evangelism, discipleship and missions involvement should occur as a woman is going. Prayer is foundational and fundamental to who a woman in Christ is and what she does for His Kingdom. Embrace encourages women’s ministry leaders in churches to design and plan all women’s ministry events with the intent of disciple-making at the forefront of each activity.

Embrace seeks to help churches and associations develop women’s ministries that encourage and equip women to be growing disciple-makers who make disciples who make disciples.

For more information or to inquire about the possibility of having a speaker on Embrace, please email embracenc@ncbaptist.org.

In addition to the backpack collection (not to take the place of) we are also collecting NEW, children’s shoes to distribute to the same area.  We are asking for NEW shoes for boys or girls, any and all sizes, any and all colors.  We just ask for sturdy, warm shoes as these will be distributed during very cold weather.%Arg”>http://www.ncbaptist.org

Introducing myMISSION for Young Women

feature-myMISSION.jpg
National WMU now offers a new organization for young adult women called myMISSION.

“Young women are such a force for Christ,” said Jean Roberson, ministry consultant for national WMU. “They combine their desire for a deep, authentic faith and a passion for reaching those who are suffering in this world. We hope myMISSION can be that place where faith and practice meet.”
