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, Diana Gagnon, Becky Hallstrom, Julie Page, Julie Tooker, and Melissa Willits

Coffee Connection PLUS! with Valerie Maloney and the GO Team

Join us on Monday, MAY 2 from 9-11am in the Fireside Room for Coffee, Connection, and to hear about Valerie and her ministry serving with Youth for Christ in Ireland.  Following an update and question/answer period, we will surround Valerie with prayer.  What an absolutely wonderful time we will have together!  Please join us!

Sensible Shoes Novel Series Summer Reading

If you have read "The Sensible Shoes" series by Sharon Garlough Brown and would like to read it again or if you're intrigued by the 3 minute video HERE, please reach out to Rebecca Nelson or REGISTER HERE to join a group to discuss these books over the summer.  We will need women to volunteer to join others hosting a group in their home or at church.  (We may even need some books to borrow so if you've got a copy, please let us know that too!)  This may be a small group of 3 or multiple groups of 6 or so.  But we'll need your help!  We plan to meet four times over the summer, each time enjoying some refreshments, relationships, and reflection on each of the four books.  Stay tuned for meeting dates.

We are actively praying and planning for our FALL 2022 Women's Bible Study!  Stay tuned, and in the meantime...

  • #1... PRAY!  Ask God to give you guidance you as you choose whether to join us in the Fall or even lead your own Bible study
  • Follow God's lead as you reach out to a new or old friend to walk alongside you in the journey He has for you.  You may not feel you need accountability, but many of us do!  AND women need each other... really... we can't do this alone.  Pray for the courage to step out in faith in Bible study.
