First Women seek to win women to Christ and encourage them to grow in their relationship with God and others by providing opportunities for spiritual growth, close fellowship, meaningful service and effectual outreach.
Women’s Bible studies meet on various days and at various times throughout the week to meet your busy schedule. We encourage you to join us for one of our dynamic and life changing studies. Please visit the InfoCenter or contact us for more information on a specific study.
Thursday Morning Study
All ladies are welcome to join us on Thursday mornings from 10:00am to 11:00am, starting October 7th. This Bible study meets in the Reception Room and will be working through the book Gentle and Lowly – Christ’s Heart for Sinners and Sufferers. If you would like to join us for this study, contact us.
Tuesday Evening Study
Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm in the Reception Room, we offer a Bible Study for Women who are in the workplace. This group is currently studying the book of Ruth.
Sunday Bible Studies
Sunday mornings, during the Sunday School hour (9:30am), this class meets in the church library. All women ages 18 and older are welcome to join. This class is currently studying the book of Esther.
On Sunday evenings at 4:45pm, a study is available for women who are looking to connect with other women. They are currently studying “Growing in Wisdom & Faith” by Elizabeth George and meet in Room 170 (just past the Women’s Restroom).
This is an opportunity for younger women in attendance at First Baptist church to meet for face-to-face counseling and personal mentoring by mature women in the church. To become part of the women’s mentoring ministry as a younger woman or mentor, please visit the InfoCenter or contact us.
In our busy world we seldom take time to stop and truly enjoy the people around us. Time spent with others, especially those who have a heart for God, can be so uplifting and fulfilling. Join the women of First Baptist church in the close fellowship opportunities below.
More than Moms
More than Moms is back! Moms of little ones (young homeschooled children included), come join us on the third Tuesday of each month, from 10am to noon for a time of fellowship, encouragement, and connection with other women in this sweet season of motherhood.

The First Baptist Church women’s ministry offers outreach opportunities each month. These outreach opportunities give women the ability to serve both locally and globally by using their talents and time to minister to others.
Women for Missions
Women for Missions Fellowship meets 6 times a year for the purpose of learning more about missions and praying for our global ministries. Women for Missions Fellowship serves and encourages our missionaries and their families in many tangible ways.
We also manage the inventory and distribution of the “Missionary Closet” which contains items to be used by our missionaries.
