Week of Prayer Observance


Join us for an area-wide observance of the Week of Prayer for International Missions on Thursday, December 4, at the national WMU® office in Birmingham!

You will have the opportunity to meet with national WMU staff and enjoy a time of prayer for international missions. 

The WMU Gift Shop will also be open, featuring beautiful items from WorldCrafts, books and Bible studies from New Hope® Publishers, and much more. We will also offer building tours featuring artifacts from around the world. 

Our guest speaker will be national WMU president, Debby Akerman. Debby was elected as president of national WMU in 2010 and will finish her last term in June. In addition to serving as a Girls in Action® leader for more than 30 years, she has been involved in WMU on local, associational, state, and national levels. She and her husband, Brad, are members of Ocean View Baptist Church in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Please join us, bring your friends, and make new ones as we pray and celebrate the season together. If you plan to join us, please RSVP here. If you are not able to attend, we invite you to join us in prayer between 10:00–11:00 a.m. CST as we lift up our international missionaries.

During this season, we hope your church will also conduct an annual Week of Prayer for International Missions observance; and we thank you for your sacrificial gifts to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® to directly support missionaries serving with the International Mission Board and their work.

This summer we joined millions of soccer enthusiasts from all over the world to root for our team in their effort to grasp the coveted World Cup title. Team USA was not expected to do much. As a matter of fact, many thought they would not make it through the first round, but they surprised us by demonstrating just how committed they were to the game and to winning. I grimaced as one player went out with a leg injury and two others left with broken noses during the early matches. But with each game they came back more determined than ever to play hard until the last second of each game.
