"It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all. Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life."
1 Timothy 1:15-16 (NASB)

MARCH 31-APRIL 1, 2017 | ONLINE REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED

The WMU of Texas is hosting our Annual Meeting and Missions Celebration on March 31-April 1, 2017 at First Baptist Church in Midland. This event will challenge attendees to make an impact in their communities for the kingdom through passionately telling His story, creatively empower leaders, and obediently engage the world for Christ.


LET'S MEET IN MIDLAND

We are HIS. Redeemed from our sin. Restored to be like His Son. Released to serve in His world. Come away for a time of worship and refreshment as you listen to God’s word, gain insight into God’s restoring work, and discern how He has released you to minister.
