The duty of the Women’s Missionary Band is primarily to stimulate and solicit missionary funds for both home and world missions. This group of women assists the pastor in promoting each month’s mission offerings, promotes special mission drives such as March and October World Mission drives, and engages in other ways to raise funds.
Laboring for missions is not solely about collecting financial gifts. Ladies of the Women’s Missionary Band collect clothing and other donations for home and foreign mission fields, engage in intercessory prayer, and actively assist in the visitation and outreach programs of the local church.
Additionally, the Women’s Missionary Band recognizes the needs of women are vastly different today than the needs of previous generations. Women are aware of their personal needs as well as the needs of their families. The Women’s Missionary Band recognizes this as the first and closest mission field and offers special ministry for the women of the band. Ministry programs serve to teach and train women to be effect women of God, wives, and mothers by offering answers the the most challenging questions of life.
