The purpose of FBC’s Women’s Ministry is to point to and celebrate the transforming effect of the gospel in our lives as women. It is both ministry to women and ministry by women in the context of the church family. Our intent is to equip women by encouraging, teaching, training, and sharing our lives together as we delight in God’s glory and the authority of His Word and to give of ourselves and our resources to serve God and the church family. (Romans 12:1&2 – Titus 2:3-5)
Women’s Ministries Opportunities At FBC
Tuesdays: Women’s Bible Study & Prayer – 10:00a – Noon
Currently studying: Nancy Guthrie’s The Wisdom of God
Join FBC women and their friends for a rich time of study in God’s Word preceded by intercessory prayer each Tuesday morning.
As we study the book, “The Wisdom of God”, by Nancy Guthrie, we will take 20 weeks to look at the Wisdom Literature of the Bible. As our women make their way through the overview study of the entire OT, we are learning to see how every book points us toward the Lamb of God, Jesus. In this study we will look specifically at the Wisdom of God, pointing us to the incarnation of His Wisdom: Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that we will end this study knowing and understanding that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, that our wisdom, our ability to walk skillfully and worthily in this world, is only found in Him. Come join us in the adventure of seeing Jesus.

Women’s Retreat for 2016, February 6, Photo Library
Our Women’s Ministries Retreat for 2016 was a beautiful day together with women of First Baptist Church as well as other churches in our community. The fellowship was sweet as we worshiped and studied God’s Word, savored an incredible High Tea complete with four delectable tea choices, reviewed the work of our Women’s Ministries, and enjoyed a time of creativi-tea!
So many gifted women offered their talent, time, and love to create this day of retreat for one another and to glorify God. Thanks be to God for this gift!
