Who first told you about Christ? How was your life changed as a result? Hebrew 13:7
First and foremost, we are a group of women who "... love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and mind..." Deuteronomy 6: 4-6 Our main purpose is to grow our relationship with Christ. We do this through studying His Word, growing in our knowledge and love for our Savior, Jesus Christ.
WMU is a Baptist Women's Missionary Association. Many Baptist churches have the ministry of WMU in their church which helps the church focus on missions in multiple ways. Here at Chapel by The Sea Baptist Church, we have been involved in many areas of mission work over the years. Locally we've volunteered/ given to Nursing homes and the Savannah Baptist Center. Internationally, we've given to Voice of the Martyrs Bibles Unbound program. Through this wonderful program, we have now sent over 1,000 Bibles.
Our main WMU focus and grand finale each year is our church-wide giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. While many Baptist Churches give to this mission offering, we at Chapel by The Sea decided long ago that it is our right, responsibility and privilege to help equip the missionaries to fulfill their role in the Great Commission. As a result, our WMU ladies have made this their priority. We begin planning in the summer, revving excitement in the church throughout October and begin giving in November. By year's end, we are always excited and in awe for what God has accomplished through the efforts of our small church for His glory alone.
As an outpouring of Christ's love for us, we desire to show His love to others through missions. We want to be obedient in fulfilling our role individually and collectively in obedience to The Great Commission and encouraging others to do the same. Matthew 28:19,20
We welcome all ladies to join us in our service to the King.

Clary's did a fabulous job as usual with professional staff and amazing food! It was so good that there was not a bite left!!! There were over 100 in attendance, in spite of the nasty weather outside. Plans are already being made for next year's banquet. If you missed this year, you really want to mark your calendars for next year!!! The slide show is bit large but well worth it. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!! Let's continue to keep CHRIST in CHRISTmas!
