Women's Missionary Union

Our MISSION: To inform and inspire Christians to influence their world for Christ.

Our Women’s Missionary Union consists of two women’s groups that meet in members’ homes. The WMU group meets the first Wednesday of each month at 2 PM and the Frances Jones Circle meets the first Thursday of each month in the evening at 7:30. Our mission focus includes praying for missions, supporting missions, developing spiritually toward a mission lifestyle, and participating in the work of our church and our Southern Baptist denomination. We actively support the Alma Hunt State missions, Lottie Moon International offering for missions, and the Annie Armstrong offering for North American missions. We also encourage involvement in other numerous mission projects throughout the year which includes the Pregnancy Center, Lighthouse Ministries, Habitat for Humanity, Heritage Hall, the Christmas Shoe boxes for Samaritan’s Purse, and others. It is very easy to join our groups, just come to Cheriton Baptist and ask. It’s exciting and each of us loves to learn and pray for what our Lord is accomplishing through His servants across HIS world. Come join us. We can guarantee you will receive God’s blessing.


During the year we have special projects that we use to minister to our community on the Shore and the world. We have special mission offerings for international missions(Lottie Moon Christmas offering), for North American missions(Annie Armstrong Easter offering, and for VA state missions(Alma Hunt). For local missions we give to Lighthouse Mission, Accomack/Northampton Pregnancy Center; national missions are Standing Rock Indian Reservation and Anchor House Mission to sailors.

The only time we ask for money from the church is for the different mission offerings listed above. All other ministry is done through donations by the women involved with the WMU.
