Where Will You Serve?

Where Will You Serve? 1

By: Lauren Cumbie I have been at Eastmont my whole life, and if there’s one thing that has been impressed upon me from childhood it is that ministry and serving are important.

What is WMU?

What is WMU? 2

By: Marti Richardson For some of you, “WMU” is a household name; for others, it is simply three letters. W.M.U. (Woman’s Missionary Union) was established more than 100 years ago.“W.M.U. challenges Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God.” That is done by PRAYING for missions, LEARNING about missions, SUPPORTING missions, DEVELOPING a lifestyle of missions, and […]
