Women on Missions (WOM)

WOM Director: Joyce Marquette

Grand Prairie's Women on Mission

The ladies meet on the third Thursday of the month at 2:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall.

They plan mission projects that impact both the local community and don't hesitate to take part in projects that have global impact too. Anyone is welcome to join the group. You know what they say... many hands make light work and there is much work to be done!

If you have a heart for helping others, come on!



  • Biblically rooted
    Scripture guides us in knowing God, His ways, His character, His mission, His redemptive acts, and His purpose for the church.
  • Missions focused
    Jesus commissioned His disciples to proclaim the good news disciple people of all nations, and teach them to live out the truths He taught.
  • Church based
    Jesus gave the church authority to act on His behalf. Teaching all ages prepares the church to fulfill His mission.
  • World aware
    God is always at work among all peoples, and we join Him where we discern He is calling us.
  • Denominationally supportive
    No one church can do alone what many churches can do together. Our voluntary cooperation extends the missions reach of the local church. 


Originally known as the Women's Missionary Union, WMU, began as an auxiliary of the Southern Baptist Convention 133 years ago in the hearts of visionary leaders to pray and systematically raise money for missions. The name of the group was later changed to Women on Mission.

Since that time, the ladies' groups have helped lead Southern Baptist churches across the country to give $6.6 billion to support our missionaries both here and abroad through the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering and Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. 

WOM’s unwavering focus on making disciples of Jesus who live on mission happens through missions discipleship, leadership development, and compassion ministries, with kingdom impact in every state and 39 countries.
