Women's Missionary Union - Missions in Action
Led by Carolyn Keller

Virginia Baptist missions were named for Alma Hunt, known world-wide for her mission service.  Here at Southampton, we designate those offerings to our Mary Burke Fund.  Mary and her husband, Dr. Kenneth Burke, were members of Southampton years ago and Mary was a faithful worker in our WMU.  Carolyn Keller leads our mission now and regularly organizes goods and services to benefit the South Richmond Baptist Center, Church Hill Christian Wellness Center, Oregon Hill Baptist Center, VCU Bapist Center, African Christian Community Church, Camp Alkulana in Millboro, Virginia among other worthy organizations and peoples.

May, 2017 MESSAGE FROM CAROLYN

As I write this article, I am once again, reminded of how time passes so quickly. And being aware of that, I realize I must make the best possible use of fleeting time. How am I using it?
Am I selfishly choosing to get involved in earthly “busy-ness” and then rationalizing my choices… “ I just don’t have time to do that…” Sometimes I can sound pretty convincing.
Okay. Back to the racing clock and how it relates to some of our mission work. We will be doing Back To School backpacks and the Christmas Store before we know it. So I’m asking you to keep your eyes open for bargains in backpacks, socks, underwear, games, toys, No. 2 pencils, packs of notebook paper, crayons, hand sanitizers, and 3-ring notebooks. You can bring these to church at anytime.
The invitation still stands to volunteer for Camp Cleanup Day on May 20th and/or June 3rd. And if you would like to help feed the homeless, we will leave the church at 9 a.m. on June 8th.
Tick … Tock…
With gratitude to God,
Carolyn
