WMU Mission Projects

October: Please note - The Redbox Ministry needs were already met for 2020. We will be collecting filled backpacks for the Appalachian Coalfields Ministry. A goal for each church can be 5 backpacks but please feel free to do any number that you can provide.
Please have filled backpacks to the LRBA Office by November 2nd.
If possible, please call ahead: 910-893-4282.


November: Christmas Cards will not be collected this year because the 2019 Christmas Cards were not deliverable due to guideline changes. We hope to do the necessary paperwork to deliver last year's cards in December. A possible November Missions Project may be to help your church gather Thanksgiving meals for families that may have a need. Please see details above for information regarding turkeys and sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving Blessing Boxes.

November 2th: Baptist Women’s World Day of Prayer (Online Info Coming Soon!)
