Annual Mission Campaigns

In addition to the support for the Cooperative Program (http://sbc.net/aboutus/cpmissions.asp) and Williamson Baptist Association that are included in our annual budget, we have three Baptist Mission offerings that we collect annually.  They are each named after women who had a wonderful ministry in that specific region.  


In April, we have an Annie Armstrong North American Missions campaign to collect funds to support mission work in North America.
