WHEN GOD OPENS DOORS

DRU GRAVES HISPANIC MINISTRY, JULY 2021

by Vicki Farrow

And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.

Colossians 4:3

For over 50 years, what is affectionately known as Migrant VBS, local Baptist churches have reached out to the farmworkers who come to our area yearly when the tomato harvest is ready. As Christians we see a harvest of souls that we only have a short window of opportunity to reach.  We may not have had chains like Paul but we have had the chains of Covid-19 keeping us from reaching souls for Jesus.  How do we reach people with such restriction?   Read more...

JULY 2021

                                        August                   Christmas in August provides a simple way you can directly help a North American missionary.

Every year WMU and the North American Mission Board partner to select missionaries who will be featured in Christmas in August. These missionaries provide a list of items they need for ministry and outreach. The lists of requested items are posted online, and then you can select a missionary, collect the requested items, and send the items to the missionaries. For a list of missionaries and needs, go to https://wmu.com/missions-discipleship/christmas-in-august/

                                        August 13-14          SC WMU offers Church WMU Leadership Development at Camp La Vida.

Leadership preparation for the new church year for all groups, other conferences, and fellowship time.

September 18         SRBA WMU offers Church WMU Leadership Development at our Fall Meeting at Sheldon Baptist Church.
This is a great time to learn, share, and be energized for the new church year.

LEADERS FOR 2021-2022

It’s time to secure leaders for the 2021-2022 church year.  Some suggestions to consider:

If you have a small number of children/students/adults offer organizations where boys and girls and men and women meet together:

Children in Action for grades 1-6 (Use Missions Journey:  Children)

Youth on Mission for grades 7-12 (Use Missions Journey:  Students)

Adults on Mission (Use one book for the year:  Missions for Life.)

Order all materials at wmustore.com.

SEASONS OF PRAYER  FREE MATERIALS

WMU encourages churches to focus on missions in their Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the earth with special emphases throughout the year.

September              Missions in SC  -  Janie Chapman Offering

Spring                     North American Missions  -  Annie Armstrong Offering

December               International missions  -  Lottie Moon Offering

The emphasis is on praying for each of these mission fields, learning about the places so we can know better how to pray, and then giving to these special offerings to help reach the people who do not know Christ as their Lord and Savior.

SC WMU has free posters, prayer guides, and envelopes.  These may be ordered once a year, and materials will be sent to you at the appropriate time.  Call SC WMU at 803-227-6206 or go to scwmu.org.
