WMU inspires and equips women to influence the world for Christ.
The Travelers Rest Baptist Women also known as WMU (Women’s Missionary Union) are an active group of women who are all about missions! The purpose of this group is to pray for missions, support missions, learn and teach about missions, and engage in mission action and witnessing through our group’s work. We strive to influence the mission field locally, nationally, and internationally with the support of our church members and Baptist convention.
Some of our annual projects include fundraisers such as Sale Trail, Holiday Bazaar, Silent Auction/Thanksgiving Dinner. The funds raised are distributed at years end to families in need as well as local charitable organizations. Throughout the year special donations are made as needs arise.
Some of the charities supported are :
SECA, Micah Ministries, Holiday Hope, Fredericksburg Food Bank, Empower House, Salvation Army,Operation Christmas Child Shoe boxes.
Our church supports and collects special donations through Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions and Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions.
Besides participation in special projects led by the SBCV, our group of ladies have led in special drives/collections for prison ministries, “baby” needs for homes, and school supplies, items requested for mission trips by our association.
