Women’s Missionary Union
WMU supports local, national, and international missions through prayer and special offerings. In addition, some of our local ministries include collecting backpacks and school supplies each summer and collecting children’s clothing and toys for the “Christmas store” at Richmond Baptists’ Church Hill ministry. Several times a year, we provide brunch for the homeless ministry at the Oregon Hill Baptist Center, and we donate food bags, gift certificates, office supplies, and other items for all three Richmond Baptist mission centers. Information about monthly meeting times and places is listed in the calendar in the Sunday bulletin.
Mary Lucile Saunders Circle
The Mary Lucile Saunders Circle is a group of women who meet for Christian fellowship, shared devotionals, and mission work. Meetings are a mix of speakers, field trips, and mission projects. The Circle usually meets the first Thursday of the month, September through May. It is named in memory of a former Second Baptist member, who was a missionary in China and the Philippines. Co-leaders of this group are Beverly Kee and Page Thurston.
Circle Around the Well
The Circle Around the Well is a mission opportunity for all women, but especially for working women. We meet from 6:30– 7:30 every Wednesday night (immediately following dinner) during the months of October through May. Just as the Samaritan woman at the well, our mission is to share Christ and the truth of salvation with others. Some of our mission projects include, but are not limited to: visiting our senior members, donations and visits with war Veterans, sharing meals with our local fire fighters, and helping fill our food pantry. Our group may be small but our fun and fellowship is great. Feel free to attend as your schedule allows, but know that we would love to have you join us when you can.
This Circle was formed by a merger of the Merrie Harding and Faye Pearson Circles (both named for missionaries). It meets monthly, September through June, usually on the second Tuesday of each month, for prayer, fellowship, mission study and outreach. Co-leaders are Beverly Dillard and Connie Moe.
