Women’s Ministry

Women’s Ministry at First Baptist Church is a broad term used to describe all the different and varying women’s groups within the church.  FBC’s Women’s Ministry encompasses three arms of church ministry:  Study, Service, and Social.

Service

The second arm of Women’s Ministry at FBC is service.  We strive to show Christ’s love by loving others, both within the church and outside it.
 
FBC courtesy committee coordinates the preparation and delivery of meals to those in our body who are in need to due to sickness or injury.  They also oversee the delivery of flowers, cards, and gifts in times of celebration and loss.
 
The funeral Committee provides a reception including a hot meal for the families of those whose funerals are held here at FBC.
 
Additionally, Women’s ministry oversees the general care and gives special attention to those in the church body when the opportunity arises.  In the past, we have packed care packages for college students, held clothing drives, and provided financial sponsorship for orphans across the globe.

Social

Women’s Ministry organizes events that encourage people to fellowship together.  This includes meal preparation, coordination, and clean-up for church dinners as well as organizing special events through out the year. 
 
We hold an annual Ladies’ Spring Tea where ladies, young and old, are invited to gather to eat good food and enjoy one another’s company.
 
We typically put together some type of children’s social event to conclude VBS or Camp week in the summer.  This past year, we had a Family Fun Fest, complete with root beer floats to wrap up Eagle Lake Camp.  And in the fall, we hosted a Fantastic Fun Fest at the conclusion of Superhero Academy.
