First Roswell celebrates WMU


In 1920 Woman’s Missionary Society formed at First Baptist Roswell. It would eventually join with national Woman’s Missionary Union – formed 32 years earlier in 1888 in Richmond, VA – and lead to the establishment of Girl’s Auxiliary, Royal Ambassadors, and Sunbeams. Involvement would grow to include 182 members. On May 4, the church celebrated 125 years of Women on Mission and the 100th birthday of Girls in Action, as well as RAs and Mission Friends. Georgia WMU President Jackie Hardy and Georgia WMU Executive Director-Treasurer Beth Ann Williams spoke at the 8:30 and 11 a.m. services, respectively.
