Women on Mission
Women on Mission is the adult arm of Woman's Missionary Union (WMU and WMUV), a national organization which also sponsors missions organizations for children. Our focus is to commit to the telling of the gospel story at home and around the world.
"As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard." Acts 4:20.
Six areas of focus are:
- Praying for missions
- Engaging in mission action and witnessing
- Learning about missions
- Supporting missions (Weeks of Prayer)
- Developing spiritually toward a missions lifestyle
- Participating in the work of our church and denomination
