WMU (Woman's Missionary Union) both at FBC Hickory and world-wide, challenges Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God. At this local church, our girls, young ladies, and women work to support this mission through biblical training and practical servant-hood.

Our WMU ministry offers training beginning with preschoolers in Mission Friends, followed by GA's - Girls in Action for schoolagers, Youth on Mission for teens, and finally a variety of Mission Groups for adult women.
Education regarding missionary work local, nationally and internationally is available to all age groups and supported through fundraising efforts such as NC Baptist Children's Home Thanksgiving Offering, CBF Lottie Moon International & Global Missions Offering, and the Annie Armstrong Offering for North American Missions.
We value local missions as well. One of our greatest outreach programs is Samantha Dolls. This ministry offers handmade dolls to children in medical crisis as well as Hospice patients. Click The Samantha Project for more information about this ministry.
