WMU News for February 2020

Ah yes, February is here, and we immediately think of hearts and flowers, chocolates and sweet words of endearment. It’s a very special month of love and appreciation symbolized by outpouring of sweet sayings and “conversation hearts”! But it makes me reflect on Jeremiah 31:3 where God says to His people, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore, I have continued my faithfulness to you”. (ESV) I guess you could say everyday is Valentine’s Day based on His love for us. Something to think about.

February is the month we collect a special offering for Heck Jones.  This is the sole support for our NC WMU and the activities they sponsor.  There is information about who these two outstanding ladies were on the WMU bulletin board.  They led the push for organizing NC women into the WMU we have now.  Our goal is       $400, and I encourage the church to support this offering.

There are many opportunities for ministry this month starting with a reception for Lorrie Griffith, our Dental Ministry Coordinator.  She has retired and our association is honoring her with a reception February 9th at the Truett office starting at 2:00 pm.

On February 15, we have the Children’s Mission Day at Murphy First starting at 10:00 am for ages 4 – 6th. Grade.  It will be a fun day so make your plans to attend.

On February 14-15, there will be a married couples Valentine Day’s Retreat at the Truett Conference Center and Camp.  Information will be on the WMU bulletin board.

Region 10 NC Missions Rally will be February 18th at Lighthouse Baptist Church Dillsboro (Sylva) starting at 5:45 pm with a meal and then the program. Information is on the WMU bulletin board.  Lots going on in this month.

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!
