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.
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.
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.
