JUNE 2021

The recently elected SRBA WMU Leadership Team met to discuss plans for 2021-2022.  Church WMUs are encouraged to begin making plans and enlisting leaders for the new year.  Missions Leader: WMU Planning Guide 2021-22 will be available at WMUstore.com in June.  This is a valuable resource for planning. 

Remember that you can have mission programs for children even if there are only a few.  Very often we hear missionaries say that their first love for missions began in children’s mission programs.  The featured missionaries for June are Anthony and Riley Driver (names changed for security) who serve in Central Asia.   “God planted seeds of kingdom service in Anthony’s heart from an early age through participation in WMU-sponsored programs such as Mission Friends and Royal Ambassadors.”  (quote from Missions Mosaic).

Migrant Ministry

Due to covid restrictions,  we are unable to meet at St. Helena Baptist Church this year.  We will be visiting camps and ministering at St. Helena Health Department the evenings of June 8, 10, 15, and 17.  Due to your faithful commitment to this ministry, we will be able to reach many migrants and let them know that we are still remembering and praying for them at this time.  Call Vicki Farrow at 843-263-5160 for information. 

SAVE THE DATE:  The SRBA WMU fall meeting will be held at Sheldon Baptist Church on September 18.  This is a great time to learn, share, and be energized for the new church year. 

The following information and updates will assist you as you make plans for 2021-2022.
