Anchor 1 – WMU Ministry

Women’s Missionary Union: We are an extension of the Southern Baptist Convention and our purpose is to educate and involve adults, youth, children and preschoolers in the cause of Christian missions.


Since its beginning in 1888, Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) has become the largest Protestant missions organization for women in the world, with a membership of approximately 1 million. WMU encourages women to pray for and give to missions, to learn and to educate others about missions, and to develop spiritually toward a missions lifestyle through their support of the local church through biblically sound, age-appropriate resources, we seek to energize, motive, and equip all ages for missions involvement.

WMU® offers organizations and approaches, as well as ministries, that enable every member of the church to learn about missions, become involved in missions, and live a missional lifestyle.

WMU offers many opportunities to fulfill the six objectives of WMU that are at the heart of missions education.

  • Pray for missions
  • Engage in mission action and witnessing
  • Learn about missions
  • Support missions
  • Develop spiritually toward a missions lifestyle
  • Participate in the work of the church and the denomination


WMU’s organizations include:


Mission Friends — How early can a child begin learning Christian missions concepts? The preschool years. From babies to kindergartners, Mission Friends provides the building blocks of faith and a basic awareness of God’s love for all people. For Mission Friends leaders, you’ll find resources designed to help you engage preschoolers of all ages in hands-on missions discipleship activities for preschool boys and girls from birth through kindergarten


Royal Ambassadors (RA) – A mission’s discipleship organization for boys in grades 1 – 6. Through hands-on activities that encourage spiritual growth, games and sports, and mentoring relationships with RA leaders, RA members become a faith-based brotherhood.


Girls in Action (GA) – A mission’s discipleship organization for girls in grades 1 – 6. Through GA, girls learn about, pray for, give to, and do missions work. They also make new friends and have lots of fun!

We invite you to discover (or rediscover) an active, authentic faith through biblically sound learning and meaningful missions opportunities offered by WMU. Take a fresh look at WMU; we think you will like what you find! Meetings are 2nd Saturday of the month at 10:00 AM
