Women in Missions
The Women in Missions (WIM) group at AFBC are women of all ages who are interested in assisting those in need. These women give generously of their time and resources. They have for many years given needed supplies to these local agencies: ACTS, Community Medical Center, Cumbee Center, Helping Hands, My Father’s House, Salvation Army and the Backpack food program for Aiken County students. Other programs for which they have provided items are the FBC Preschool Library and laundry supplies for the Teen Center at Second Baptist Church. Because of their generous contributions, WIM is able to provide emergency assistance of food and services for families in crisis. Our ladies not only support financially these programs but many volunteer their time at the Community Medical Center, the GED program at Second Baptist Church, Salvation Army, My Father’s House, ACTS Rural Food Distribution, Aiken Senior Life Services, Great Oak Equine Assisted Program (Therapeutic riding) and preparing and serving lunches for the homeless population and the Women Build volunteers of Habitat for Humanity. When Missions HERE was conducted, our women assisted on the job sites, in the craft area, providing lunches and serving wherever needed. They serve with kindness and grace.
If you would like to be part of this loving group, please join us in the Fellowship Hall on September 23 at 6:00 p.m. to hear of mission opportunities for the fall and winter. You will be a blessing to someone and will receive a blessing too. Thanks be to God for willing and faithful servants!
