Woman’s Missionary Union

Ultimately, the purpose of all Women on Mission® activities is that every person has the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel.  We have a place for you!

Watchword “I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.  I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.”  1 Corinthians 9:22b-23 (NIV)
