Thanks to the great work of Larry Brannin, Media Department Director for the Kentucky Baptist Convention, the general sessions of the 2015 Kentucky WMU Annual Meeting were shown live on the internet through Livestream. Larry also video taped the sessions and they are now posted on Vimeo. You may watch them on line or download them to your computer. Please share the sessions with others! We are also grateful to Drew Nichter from the KBC Communications Department, who assisted.
We are grateful for the wonderful attendance and for your generous giving during Annual Meeting. There were 700 registered (though we know of a few more that did not register!). You gave $7,500 to the offering for Kentucky WMU Ministries to Missionaries and $4,800 to the Kentucky WMU Heritage Fund. Your generous giving allows us to continue our work in missions education and involvement. If you were not able to attend or would still like to give, online giving is available for all areas of Kentucky WMU work.
We are are also grateful for your gift to the Eliza Broadus Offering. A number of EBO grant recipients had displays at our meeting and were given an EBO Grant Recipient ribbon to place on their display. Please note that we are in the final months of the 2014-15 offering year and we are running a little behind this time last year and have not yet reached our goal of $1,250,000. When we do not reach the goal, funds for church planting, language missions, evangelism, collegiate ministry, church and community ministries, missions education, and much more are reduced for the year. The offering is received all year long and you can check our progress on our website.
Plans are underway for our next gathering in Madisonville, April 8-9, 2016. Mark your calendar and plan NOW to be be with us. The Annual Meeting is the gathering place of everyone who cares about missions. The inspiration, challenge, and fellowship are worth the trip. Be there!
