Women's Groups & Events

  • An "extra special" Coffee Connection

    Our next Coffee Connection will be held on Monday, November 27 at First Baptist Church! By popular demand, for THIS Connection we are holding THREE time periods that you can drop in and connect with women of all ages...

    • 9-11am
    • 2-4pm
    • 7-9pm 

    This Connection will be hosted by your Women's Ministry Team and we are stepping it up a notch!  You won't want to miss the tasty treats and coffee bar, nor the door prizes and giveaways!  This is an extra special Connection for extra special Y.O.U.!!!

    Their remains no agenda... just coffee and food and enjoying one another.  At the Connection, we hope to hear who you plan to be family to during our Women's Christmas Outreach week the following week and  as promised, we will have some resources for your outreach, some conversation starters and invitations to our Christmas Services.  Come alone, bring a neighbor or coworker, or even a group!  There are SO many women who would LOVE to be asked!  Follow how the Lord leads and invite some women TODAY!

  • Women's Christmas Outreach Week

    Who is God CALLING YOU to be FAMILY to this Christmas?

    Join us and step beyond the walls of FBC to share the love of Jesus and the miracle of Christmas.  Most of us welcome family and friends into our homes during the holidays, but do we think about reaching out to our neighbors or coworkers?  Your gathering can be as casual or as elegant as you'd like.  "Toolkits" are still available at the Welcome Center if you need some ideas.  Please reach out to us and let us know what you are planning!  And please come to the Christmas Coffee Connection on Monday, November 27 and pick up some resources for your event.

  • Women's Bible Studies

    We are looking forward to using The Story's "Personal Journal & Discussion Guide" as our Women's Bible Study this year.  Meeting each week from September thru April for this 31 week study will be a SUPER way to follow through with what Pastor Jared is asking the entire church to do each week as we read "The Story" together.  Your Women's Ministry Team is excited to join in with the vision of FBC and offer this in depth bible study!  Please join us!!!  You can register by clicking on this LINK and find more information about why we chose to offer this study by clicking HERE.  It's NEVER too late to join one of our groups and we'd LOVE to hear from you!
