Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) is inviting Baptists traveling to their home city to participate in a day marking the mission auxiliary’s 131 years of helping Southern Baptists share the gospel in their communities and around the world. At WMU headquarters in Birmingham on Monday, June 10, participants are invited to choose from dozens of missions activities.
“We are filling every square inch of space with a tremendous variety of missions experiences for all ages,” said Sandy Wisdom-Martin, executive director-treasurer for WMU. “As we celebrate 131 years of missions involvement through WMU, we are excited to offer 131 options throughout the day.”
Opportunities include an interactive refugee simulation; monologues from past missions leaders; a Royal Ambassador (RA) sailboat gutter regatta; self-guided audio tours of missions artifacts and history; packing boxes for refugees; being part of creating a world mosaic using glass tiles; and more.
The WMU Missions Celebration and Annual Meeting begins June 9 at The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham. WMU also will host a dinner June 7 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Acteens, its missions curriculum for teens. For more information about all WMU events in Birmingham, go to WMU.com.
