WOM (Women on Mission)

The WOM of Haran Baptist Church is a group of Christian women dedicated to doing mission work in our church, our community and our world. We work closely with our pastor and church membership to insure that we are assisting those in need by following God’s biblical practices to bring hope to so many who need our help.

We are involved in various ministries in our church and local association including a library ministry, nursing home ministry, shut in ministry, and a truck stop ministry. We also support the efforts of the local Baptist association to Powell River, Virginia and the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. We also work very closely with the Roanoke Valley Baptist Association and our church to set goals and maintain follow-ups on the various international and local mission fields such as the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and the Alma Hunt Offering for Virginia Missions.

Operation Christmas Child brings us a great deal of joy each year as we head up the promotion of this ministry and the collection of shoe boxes to go to Samaritan’s Purse.  These boxes filled with gifts then end up spreading God’s love all over the world to children who have never seen how sweet God’s love can be as they open their gifts.  They also see our expression of love to them.

These are just a few of the ways we are involved. We give praise to our Lord who guides and directs all of our mission work.  Join us as we worship our King, spread His word, and stay on mission for Him.
