This year, Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) celebrates the 50th anniversary of Acteens, the missions education group for girls in grades 7–12.

To kick off the celebration, WMU will bring together former Acteens to reflect on the past and look to the future on Friday, June 7. The event, Acteens for Life, will take place at national WMU headquarters in Birmingham, Ala., prior to the Southern Baptist Convention’s meeting, June 11-12.

The gathering is for all women whose lives have been impacted through Acteens in their teenage years, as well as current and former leaders of Acteens. Participants will gather at 6 p.m. for dinner together and to reminisce about Acteens’ influence on their lives.

Following dinner, a panel will discuss the future of missions discipleship for teen girls and how women can become involved.
