Welcome to Women's Ministry at First Baptist!

Below you will find several opportunities to get plugged in with the women in our community. Please continue to check back and find addition opportunities to get involved and enjoy First Baptist women's events. 

"First Baptist Women's Ministry exists to equip women to grow in love and grace

and to build real relationships with Jesus and women of all ages."

Your Women's Ministry Team,

Rebecca Nelson, Julie Page, and Julie Tooker

Coffee Connection

The next Coffee Connection will be held JUN 17 from 9am-11am and 6pm-8pm at the home of Andrea DeRushia!

Please join us! If you receive First Baptist emails, you will receive a reminder a few days prior to the event with address and details. There remains no agenda...just coffee and food and enjoying one another. Bring a friend or two to either to the morning Connection or the evening Connection...or come to BOTH! It's always a fun time getting together with "the girls!"

AdultEd (Sunday School) class!  

APR 28-JUN 16

Please join us at 9am in the Fireside Rm and learn how to "Seek God First." This class will be facilitated by Julie Page. All women and high school girls are welcome!

Women's Bible Studies

If you are interested in a study for this summer, please reach out to Rebecca, she's got some GREAT ideas for you!!!

Please stay tuned for our Women's Bible Study offerings for Fall 2019 and Winter 2020.  

Friends First Quilters

Get together with other quilters, learn new tips, and share your knowledge with others at our quilting group. Work on your favorite quilting project (or any other craft) and be inspired and encouraged by other women.

While we will not be meeting at church over the summer, we made the following plans for a few sewing dates at Athens Town Hall: JUN 8 (9am-1pm), JUL 13 (9am-1pm), and AUG 10 (9am-2pm, and fabric sale 10am-2pm). Contact FFQ Coordinator Gale with any questions.

Other Opportunities for Women

These are not First Baptist Women's Events, but they are faith building opportunities that many women are taking advantage of. Click on the following links to get more information and PLEASE let us know if you plan to attend. Our Women's Ministry Team would be blessed to be praying for you!

  • Bible Study Fellowship - BSF is offered at a Satellite location in Cambridge! Contact Sarah Anderson for location and registration information.

  • Widow Might - Contact the Coordinator: North-Metro (Cambridge area) Widow Connect Gatherings by visiting their website.
    Mission - help widows connect so they may live, heal, grow and, in time, thrive.
    Purpose - exist to serve today's community of widows and are an expression of God's might in their world. Our passion is for the widow - to meet her where she is, on her terms, in meaningful ways, at appropriate times, and to expect nothing in return.

Spring Women's Retreat

What an absolutely glorious time! We sought God's presence together and learned how to become more rooted in Him. Rooted in Prayer, Joy, Faith, Trust, and Hope

Thank you to the Retreat Committee - Jamie, Sandy, Tara, and Kelly. And a HUGE shout out to Arlene Gabrielson, our retreat speaker!! 

We hope to offer our next retreat Fall 2020 or Spring 2021.
