WMU Monthly News from Brenda Carter
August brings us to the time of returning from or preparing to participate in church supported mission trips.The realization that the Creator of the universe, the One and Only true God, the provider of Salvation and the Good Shepherd, desires to give me the opportunity to join Him in His work is overwhelming to say the least. He uses ordinary people to accomplish His purposes through sharing the Gospel message, loving others with a measure of His love and meeting various needs. The results is Extraordinary! Only God can accomplish great and amazing works as we are available to be used for His glory. He is an AWESOME God! I trust your summer is being filled with blessings as you participate in sharing the Good News through giving, praying or going. Thank you for being Women on Mission!
August is the time to begin preparation for the new WMU Year. September-August is the suggested time frame for the WMU year, however, individual churches can choose the time that is best for their schedules.A WMU Director’s Resource booklet was sent to churches on record at the WMU-NC office. This resource includes a preorder form to order materials for the emphasis of LMCO, AAEO and Heck-Jones. Also included is the 2017-2018 WMU church leadership form. Please submit the Leadership form by November 1st so that the state/association offices can update the mailing records.
