It's Not Supposed
to Be This Way

but we are so glad that it is!
Instead of one section, we have two!

 

    The Summer Bible Study,  which began meeting on Tuesday, July 9th and is led by Cil Benton, has been so popular that another section had to be offered on Thursday nights.  Cil is leading the Thursday session also.

    The study is based on the book It's Not Supposed to Be This Way  "Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered" by Lysa TerKeurst.

    Women from other churches and of  different generations are participating in this study.

Evergreen WMU Receives

Special Recognitions

at  Florence Baptist Association WMU Spring Celebration

April 8th, 2019

 

      Evergreen Baptist Church Women's Missionary Union received an award for growing the R.A.s in numbers and the Triple A Recognition for high achievement from the South Carolina WMU at the local Spring Celebration at South Florence Baptist Church.

    EBC WMU Director BJ Pettit accepted the awards as five  EBC S.I.S.T.E.R.S. watched.  The Triple A Recognition includes activities of the GAs, Mission Friends, RAs, S.I.S.T.E.R.S., and Youth.

"For a WMU to achieve Triple A recognition, forty of the seventy-two actions must have been completed. At least one activity must have been accomplished from eleven categories (out of thirteen listed). 

"The categories for Triple A relate to the six WMU missions objectives: (1) pray for missions, (2) support missions, (3) learn about missions, (4) engage in mission action and witnessing, (5) develop spiritually toward a missions lifestyle, and (6) participate in the work of the church and the denomination. An action is the how, what, where, when, and why of the category. The various options, methods or avenues used to achieve the action were the guidelines given to you to follow.

"All of the information needed to be completed on the form. The request for recognition was to be mailed to the state WMU office by September 30, 2017 (after August 31, 2017 and before September 30, 2018)."   from the South Carolina WMU

    Evergreen WMU participates in all of these activities to help spread the Word of Salvation and to help those in need in our community.  We always have room for more people--come, join us.
