The Women on Mission ministry at Philadelphia was born out of what was historically known as our Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) ministry, and is one of the primary ways in which Philadelphia Baptist Church participates in our local mission field. The ministry is led by a Facilitation Team consisting of approximately 10-women who seek to facilitate all the women at Philadelphia serving Christ together by serving others. The Facilitation Team meets on the 1st Sunday of each month to plan and pray together. The planning and prayer center upon an ongoing monthly rotation where on the 3rd Saturday of each month the women of the church are alternately given a fellowship or service opportunity.
Every other month the women of Philadelphia enjoy as part of the Women on Mission ministry a Coffee & Conversation Fellowship, that includes a special speaker, and is a platform for announcing the next month’s Mission Project. Both the Fellowship Breakfast and Mission Projects take place alternately on the 3rd Saturday of each month. Mission Projects target needs in the community/church, and often function in support of local parachurch ministries.
Our Women on Mission ministry has as one of its priorities involving younger women and girls (often the daughters and granddaughters of women in the church) by encouraging their participation in the Fellowship and Missions events, with the goal of facilitate mentoring relationships in the church and train-up the next generation (ie. the 2nd “M” in the W.O.M acrostic). The best way to learn more about Philadelphia’s Women on Mission ministry, or get involved personally, is to attend on the 3rd Saturday of any month, see the ministry in action first hand, and participate along with the other women of our church. Also note Philadelphia also has a Men on Mission ministry that functions in much the same format.
