Women's Missionary Union
Woman's Missionary Union was established in 1888 with its home office in Birmingham, Alabama. It is a auxiliary of the Southern Baptist Convention. In 1912 the WMU was organized. WMU seeks to equip adults, youth, children and preschoolers with missions education to become radically involved in missions work for God. WMU is a non-profit organization that offers missions resources including conferences, ministry ideas, models, volunteer opportunities, curriculum for age-level organizations, leadership training, books and more. The program is still very active today and has a place for everyone. At Lydia Baptist, the WMU meets every 1st Wednesday of the month (Missions Night) and also holds a Ladies Night every 3rd Tuesday (6:30 pm) of the month for a time of food and fellowship. Every lady is encouraged to come and be a part of both of these special occasions!

The Brotherhood's purpose is to build up the body Christ by strengthening men through fellowship, missions, devotions and prayer, as well as completing several projects each year to help the elderly and families in need. The Brotherhood at Lydia Baptist Church meets every 1st Wednesday of the month and is open to all adult men. Other events, such as Men's Baptist Day, are also coordinated throughout the year.
