Focus on WMU

February 11–17, 2019

With Unshakable Pursuit as the theme for Focus on WMU, churches are encouraged to emphasize the value of WMU to your church. Include Mission Friends as a part of Focus on WMU in your church in the following ways.

Shifting Gears

My husband tore a tendon in his shoulder. He cannot drive his six-speed car, so we’ve switched vehicles. It’s been nearly three decades since I drove a car with a manual transmission. I was a bit nervous, wondering if I would be able to manage the clutch.

Focus on WMU: It’s about Missions

Focus on WMU is not about WMU. It’s about missions. It’s about the work of God through the church by which the gospel of Jesus Christ is extended in word and deed to all the people in the world.

Focus on WMU "by All Means"

I remember so vividly my years as a GA. I enjoyed learning about missions, praying for missions, giving to missions, and doing missions.

Why Is It Important?

Before I came to national WMU, I served as a pastor in Alabama, Mississippi, and Virginia. The churches I served had varying levels of missions participation and missions education.

Get Creative to Focus on WMU

Focus on WMU week provides an annual opportunity to remind your church of the role WMU plays in the church’s missions efforts and to recognize church leaders and WMU members who are making those efforts happen.

Children’s Ministry Day: Growing, Maturing, and Making Mistakes

Last week, my son, Evan, turned 9 years old.

During his lifetime, I’ve watched him grow, change, and mature.

I’ve also watched him make more than a few mistakes along the way.

That’s the nature of growth and getting older.

Support Missions

We who are blessed with a constant source of water on tap find it difficult to imagine life without a ready source of water. Without water, we cannot live, so when a village without water gets a well, it is cause for rejoicing!

Focus on Generations

Imagine a gym full of preschoolers through women in their 80s. Imagine fun and games mixed with ministry. Imagine a multigenerational morning celebrating Focus on WMU association-wide.
