Women on Mission Groups

Women's Missionary Union (WMU)

Moms on Mission

2nd & 4th Mondays  |  10 a.m.

Missions in the Morning is back and with a brand new name! This fun, energetic group will still follow the core principals of a Bible study and mission projects, however, they will now operate as M.O.M.—Moms on Mission. We are looking for women from all walks and stages of life—whether you are a stay-at-home mom or an empty-nester. M.O.M will meet at First Baptist Nashville on the second and fourth Mondays of every month at 10 a.m. The first monthly meeting will be a two-hour bible study. We will be studying "When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor ... and Yourself" by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert. The second meeting of the month is a four-hour mission project out in the community that is coordinated through Project Connect. You can be involved in either the Bible study, mission project, or both!

Our new year will begin on Monday, September 14. Free childcare for all ages is available upon RSVP.
