Alabama keeps Families on Mission alive in interim between NAMB, WMUcomment (0)

June 7, 2012

Shelby Baptist Association will host Alabama’s only Families on Mission (FOM) project, a hands-on missions opportunity for families with children, July 7–11. It will be the association’s fourth year to participate, but this year will take on a different level of involvement.

Traditionally this has been a national ministry of the North American Mission Board (NAMB). Shelby Association would participate in FOM through NAMB, but with NAMB’s fall 2011 decision to drop the annual event Shelby Association decided to sponsor Alabama’s project for 2012.

National Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) will sponsor the event beginning in 2013, and the name will be changed to Family Mission Adventures, according to WMU corporate communications team leader Julie Walters.

Pre-registered families, which range from grandparents to kindergarten-age children, will be paired with churches in Shelby Association to work on a variety of missions projects.

Missions activities include light construction and painting, yard work, prayer walking, block parties and other ministry-oriented projects, followed by evening worship services.

For more information about FOM, contact Debbie Snyder at 205-669-7858 or debbie@
