WMU News for January 2020

Is it really January already?? Seems like only yesterday we were planning for 2019 and here it is 2020.  Time really does fly, doesn’t it?

Here are some December highlights from our church’s WMU.  We gave poinsettias to L&N Assisted Living Home, both Carolina Homes and Valley View Nursing Home.  At our Christmas get together, we collected unwrapped toys for the Toys for Tots campaign.  We were also able to provide Walmart gift cards to the children at the Truett Children’s Home in Hayesville.  And then, we led out in our special offering for Lottie Moon by providing Lottie’s Post Office again this year, and we are almost at our goal of $6,000 set for our church this year.  God is SO GOOD!!

So, with 2019 gone, what does 2020 bring?  In January, we honor our NC Baptist Retirement Homes with a special offering goal of $200.  Any amount is greatly appreciated by this ministry to our state’s older adults.  Our WMU bulletin board has posted information regarding Baptist Retirement Homes.

Now, allow me a moment of reflection.  We all have New Year’s Resolutions for better health, more activity, better eating habits, financial responsibility, etc. which are all good things to work on.  But, in addition to physical resolutions, how about our spiritual resolutions?  We need to pay attention to our spiritual well being as well.  We need more feeding on God’s Word, more exercise in prayer and compassion for others; more working for Christ wherever we are, being better stewards of all that God has given us.  We have heard a lot about getting out of our comfort zones and taking on the character of Christ.  Let this year be the year we “get out of the boat” for Christ!!

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!
