October WMU News and Messages
As I write, we are completing the week of prayer for the Janie Chapman Offering for State Missions. Our goal this year is $2,000 dollars. There are envelopes and brochures in the Connections Corner and in the Narthex that tells about some of the current projects and the missionaries involved. Please pray for these missionaries who are working in our state. We will continue to receive these offerings through October.
Global Hunger Sunday is October 10. Please pray for those who are working to care for these needs around the world.
In November we will be re-organizing our Children’s Missions organizations, so watch for more news about this reorganization. We will also be offering a new time for the Adult Missions group, which is currently meeting the third Monday of each month.
We are trusting that COVID infections are lessening, and we are preparing for more activities and mission opportunities for October. Specifically, we are preparing for the Christmas projects that involve many of our FBC Family members.
1) The first to begin is Backpacks for Appalachia. You may buy your own backpack if you prefer, but the church will provide backpacks with instructions and suggestions for items to put in the backpacks. The backpacks need to be prepared and returned by October 17. They will be sent to Cedar Ridge Ministries in Williamsburg, KY through the SC WMU and our Colleton Associational WMU.
2) The second project is Prisoner Packets that our FBC WMU prepares each fall to be presented to the prisoners in the SC Penitentiary System. These packets will be prepared by one of our WMU groups at its regular meeting and will be sent to Columbia to be carefully examined before going to the prison.
3) The third project is Seaman’s Christmas boxes that we prepare to give for the Wando Seaman’s Center in Charleston. The boxes are currently being prepared and will be available to be picked up at your convenience, but they are not due until the end of November. You may remember that they are given to the captains of ships that call at the Wando Port so that they can be disbursed on Christmas Eve. Most of the recipients are foreign seamen who do not know Jesus, so it is a great ministry opportunity.
Blessings on us all as we share the Good News and spread the Light of His Love.
