WOMEN ON MISSIONS
Women on Missions at Albion First Baptist consist of women who want to develop a mission's lifestyle through education, prayer, and involvement in missions and ministries. Women on Missions is an offshoot of SBC's Women's Missionary Union (WMU) and is open to any woman who wants to develop this lifestyle. The Mission Mosaic, our WMU magazine, is our source for relevant information concerning our SBC missionaries and ministry opportunities for our monthly meetings. We also support local, state, North American, and international missions through book studies, special offerings, and the corresponding weeks of prayer; as well as, our Girls in Action and Royal Ambassadors.
Past ministries of Women on Missions have been: prayer walks, the assembly of fleece lap blankets for dialysis and chemo patients, door draft blockers, hygiene kits for local women's abuse agency, care packages for college students, jars of soup for shut-ins on Saturday before Super Bowl, banquet for GA girls, collection of cell phones and ink cartridges for missionaries, preparing and delivering meals, theme baskets for Carmi Children's Home Fall Carnival, and collection of paper and hygiene products for Carmi Baptist Children's Home.
Our brotherhood ministry is a place for serving others in their needs. We also offer opportunities for men and boys to grow closer together in serving the Lord. We've taken on projects such as minor home repairs or helping to clean up homes. This is also the purpose of our monthly prayer breakfast. Breakfast is usually the first Sunday of the month starting at 7:45 a.m. before Sunday School unless otherwise informed. Periodically throughout the year we have different planned events such as fishing and cook outs, chili suppers and different work projects.
Our local Brotherhood works in conjunction with the National, State, and Associational Disaster Relief Teams. Men and women from our church have responded to national disasters in New York, Louisiana, Texas, and Missouri as well as our local area doing tree removal, roofing and mud out projects.

Our senior adults meet as a group once a month, usually the second Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. We meet to pray together, to have fellowship, mail cards to church members and friends and to go out to eat.
We welcome the opportunity to engage in projects that would benefit the mission of our church
and the community. All adults who consider themselves “seniors” are welcome to become actively involved with this group.
The adult choir is open to all members high school age and above. We usually have a Christmas musical each year which we begin practicing for in September on Sunday evenings at 7:30 p.m. after evening church service. We periodically will do a special song during the remainder of the year.
We would enjoy having anyone who wants to sing for the Lord to join us. You don't have to have a great voice, just a willing heart!
