To inspire, encourage, uplift, develop and direct all of God's children who have a desire to minister to the Lord through song and to do it with a heart of worship. To lead people into the divine presence of the Lord and to express love and excitement for gospel music openly without restraint so that God is glorified and magnified.
Minister Yvonne McHenry, Director
Women on Mission is a mission organization for women whereby we pray, give to missions, perform mission work, learn and teach about missions. The objective is to provide a means for every woman to discover and fulfill God's plan for her life. The purpose of all Women on Missions activities is for every person in the world to have the opportunity to hear and respond to the message of the gospel. In the church, we have age groups at all levels (senior women, younger women, Acteens - 11th & 12th grades, Girls-in-Action through the 6th grade, Mission Friends - preschoolers). These groups encompass the Woman's Missionary Union. We are laborers together with God. 1 Corinthians 3:9

The Prayer Ministry entails reaching out to all Christians, coming together asking, seeking, and knocking. God's power is released through the prayers of Christians. Intercession is the most powerful work we can do, praying in Jesus' name, in faith and humility. "Again, I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven." Matthew 18:19 Jesus is our example in prayer.
Mother Virginia Thompson, Leader
