WMU News for January 2023

Well, 2023 is here; 2022 has passed into the annals of history-the good, the bad and the ugly.  What will 2023 bring?  Only God really knows.  Perhaps, instead of focusing on New Year’s resolutions, which we almost never keep, we should focus on living a life that is pleasing to God.  A life that reflects the goodness of God; a life that points other to our heavenly father.  A life that believes the Word and lives by its principles.  Now that’s a resolution this old world needs more than anything-people sold out to God!!

We will continue to collect Lottie Moon offerings until no more contributions come in.  This Sunday (Jan. 1) will be the last day for Lottie’s Post Office, so collect your cards!

January special emphasis is on NC Baptist Retirement Homes.  Our goal is $200 this year.  The Week of Prayer for this NC offering for older adults is Jan. 29-Feb. 5.  They do have a special initiative called “Medicine From the Heart Medication Vial Campaign”.  It involves taking a medication vial (which we have) and filling it with your loose change and/or green “stuff”, and what’s collected will be used to help with medication costs of older adults in NC.  More information coming.

As WMU Director, I have a prayer request that I am asking the church to start praying for.  As you may or may not know, Mrs. Ronney Craig has been our dedicated Children in Action leader for many years.  Ronney also wears many other hats as well.  Due to her own health issues, Ronney feels she can no longer lead our CIAs and will be stepping down in late May, early June.  She leads grades 1-5 every Wednesday night and has been such a blessing to these children.  I am asking our church to start right now praying for “Miss Ronney”, for her health and for a replacement(s) for CIA leadership.  It might take more than one to replace her-she’s an army in herself!  Pray about it and ask God if this is where you need to be, helping guide these young lives in their knowledge of God.  All materials are provided; we need willing workers!! Let me know if you feel God’s leadership in this need.

God bless,

Helen

We are delighted to announce that the AFBC Titus 2 Women’s Ministry Team is hosting a women’s conference for our church and community on Friday, April 27th and Saturday, April 28th.  Sheila Womble, of Planting Seeds to Trees Ministries from Cairo, GA, will be sharing her personal testimony and speaking on the Overflow of God’s Love in our lives as women!  Her guest Malorie Whitley, will be leading worship for the event.

We are seeking volunteers and women from our church who may feel led to share their personal testimony during this event.  We are encouraging you (women and men) to begin praying for this event; that women will attend with open hearts and that God will use both Sheila and Malorie for His glory through the Overflow conference.

We will have a sign-up sheet posted for those who are interested and pre-registration packets in the lobby of our church.  There is also an online registration option found through Facebook.  Cost for attendance is $15 each or two attendees for $10 each as we would like to encourage each attendee to bring a guest!  Food and child care will be provided for women who attend.   Please contact any of the Titus 2 Women’s Ministry Team if you have any questions or would like to volunteer your time or your testimony!
