Throughout the country, girls and their leaders are making plans to experience Blume, a missions gathering for girls.
Sponsored by Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU), Blume will take place July 8–11, 2020, at Germantown Baptist Church in Memphis, Tann. At Blume, girls in grades 5–12 will be challenged to serve others and fulfill their part in God’s plan as they hear from nationally known speakers and missionaries, pray and worship together, and go out into the community to serve.
“Blume is an event that is a missional catalyst for the young women of the up and coming generation,” said Tori Richards, ministry assistant to the Mississippi Baptist Convention Board’s WMU department, of her experiences at Blume as a student. “They get to learn about what is going on in their world and how they can be the change that makes the difference for the kingdom of God.”
Blume’s Bible study leader is Amy-Jo Girardier, author of “Authentic Love and Faithful One,” editor of girlsminister.com, and girls minister and missions coordinator at Brentwood Baptist Church. Singer-songwriter duo Jonathan and Emily Martin, and Christian emcee Juliana Wilson will join Girardier in leading worship. In addition, girls will have the opportunity to enjoy a concert led by Holly Starr.
