Women On the Grow
Women’s Missionary Union Ministry
Currently, we have 2 active Women’s Missionary Union groups that meet. These groups meet….
2nd Thursday – 10:00 am WMU Daytime Bible Study group (this group meets on campus in the Conference Room)
3rd Monday – 7:00 pm Helpful Hearts WMU group (this group meets off campus in various member homes)
If you have an interest in Missions both locally and around the world, this is the place to be. Each month these groups each have a mission project. Some are local, such as the prison ministry, a needy family, or the food bank; some are worldwide, such as the Samaritan’s Purse shoe box ministry, Annie Armstrong and Lottie Moon Offerings, and Youth Mission Trips. These groups also have a prayer focus as well as study about doing the work of missions.

What is DEAM?
DEAM is supported by 23 Decatur area churches to provide emergency assistance to individuals within the Decatur area. The ministry offers non-perishable food, rent assistance, utility assistance and prescription medication assistance to qualifying people. The center is open year-round and is staffed by volunteers and one paid employee. The Avondale location also provides used clothing.
We accept donations of money and non-perishable food like canned meats, pasta, rice, corn bread, cereal, pasta sauces and jelly. You can donate at the church or bring it directly to the DEAM office during working hours.What can I do for DEAM?
We are always glad to welcome new volunteers to the ministry. You will be trained in the process and can work in various capacities. The experience is very rewarding because this mission is entirely designed to support our local communities of Decatur and Avondale Estates. An average of 300 folks are helped every month through DEAM
