WMU- Women's Missionary Union

WMU- Women's Missionary Union (for women ages 18 & up) meet the first Sunday of each month at noon in the FBC Fellowship Hall.

In 1888, a handful of women dedicated to the cause of missions founded Women's Missionary Union. Since that time, WMU® has become the largest Protestant missions' organization in the world, with a membership of approximately 1 million.

From the beginning, WMU®'s main purpose has been to educate & involve women, girls & preschoolers in the cause of Christian missions. Throughout its history, WMU® has been an auxiliary to the Southern Baptist Convention, which means that it acts as a "helper" to the SBC®. The auxiliary status also means that WMU® is self-governing & self-supporting. Our WMU® supports the following organizations through meetings, age-appropriate teaching & magazines.

Our WMU® offers Ministry Projects:

  • Operation Christmas Child

  • Supports a child's schooling in Haiti

  • Supports two children in an orphanage in Kenya

  • Supplies for the Rio Grande River Ministry

  • Make monthly treats for the Smithville Police Department
