Group Leaders: Gwyn Scott, Donna Gose, & Trina Burwash

 

Women’s Missionary Union of Calvary Baptist Church - Borger meets every Wednesday evening at 5:00pm in the Fellowship Hall.

The What of WMU

Each week we meet and have a short Bible Study, pray over the missionary list in the Mission Mosaic, and seek God’s direction in what ministry opportunities He wants us to become involved with in our community for each month. You are never too young or too old to be God’s disciple investing in Kingdom Work.

The Why of WMU

Five values and beliefs drive WMU to make disciples of Jesus who live on mission:

  1. Biblically rooted: Scripture guides us in knowing God, His ways, His character, His mission, His redemptive acts, and His purpose for the church.
  2. Missions focused: Jesus commissioned His disciples to proclaim the good news, disciple people of all nations, and teach them to live out the truths He taught.
  3. Church based: Jesus gave the church authority to act on His behalf. Teaching all ages prepares the church to fulfill His mission.
  4. World aware: God is always at work among all peoples, and we join Him where we discern He is calling us.
  5. Denominationally supportive: No one church can do alone what many churches can do together. Our voluntary cooperation extends the missions reach of a local church.

The How of WMU

Active service as we learn and serve in missions together!

Acts 1:8” … but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and even to the remotest part of the earth.”

We are Kingdom People investing in Kingdom work, each of us doing our part and working together.

The teachings and actions of Jesus show that the Christian faith is not stagnant but active and participatory. Disciples share the gospel in word and deed through mission projects that relate to what they are learning.

Faithful Giving

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure –pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”

As these disciples learn how God is at work around the world, they invest in Kingdom Work with their offerings and designated Conventions unified plan of giving through the Cooperative Program and other trusted partners:

IMB – Lottie Moon Christmas Offering (LMCO)

NAMB – Annie Armstrong – Easter

NAMB – Mary Hill Davis – Texas

World Hunger; Baptist Global Response (BGR);

Samaritan’s Purse/Operation Christmas Child (OCC)

Local: Living Waters, CareNet, Opportunities, etc.

Call to Prayer

1 Timothy 2:4 “ … who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the Truth.”


 

 

Prayer is the most important part of missions.

We join God in His Kingdom Work when we answer His call to pray for each active and retired missionary, those serving in the 10/40 window and only have their initials listed, Chaplains, Volunteers and State Convention Missionaries who are unnamed, those being persecuted for their faith, and to pray for the lost who are waiting for someone to answer God’s call to go and tell them about Jesus.

How About You?

Now you have a clear understanding of the WMU focus: Doing God’s Work His Way! We know that all Kingdom Work our Heavenly Father considers valuable takes place through His Holy Spirit –not by means of human power or might (Zechariah 4:6). Far from being aimed at a select few who are called to ministry, this is an essential truth for all believers.

How is God calling you to join Him in Kingdom Work? Do you hear God’s invitation to join Him as He works through the WMU at CBC?

Come and join us!
