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 and the world.  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, the church family, and our community. (Romans 12:1&2 – Titus 2:3-5)

Women’s Ministries Opportunities At FBC

Tuesdays: Women’s Bible Study & Prayer – 10:00a – Noon & 7:00p

Currently studying:

  • The Word of the Lord by Nancy Guthrie   STARTING 9.18.18

As we study the book The Word of the Lord by Nancy Guthrie, we will take 20 weeks to look at the Prophetic Books of the Old Testament. In the Old Testament, Israel’s kings were given the counsel of God through God’s prophets. What the prophets recorded those many, many years ago is still relevant …. But how does this ancient history apply to us today? Join us as we dig in to the Old Testament Prophets and discover their message!

Join FBC women and their friends for a rich time of study in God’s Word preceded by intercessory prayer each Tuesday morning and evening.

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!
