“LET US HOLD UNSWERVINGLY TO THE HOPE WE PROFESS, FOR HE WHO PROMISED IS FAITHFUL. AND LET US CONSIDER HOW WE MAY SPUR ONE ANOTHER ON TOWARD LOVE AND GOOD DEEDS.” -HEBREWS 10:23-24
First Baptist Ladies Ministry empowers women to experience God’s peace through an active, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. We seek to embrace God’s people by developing authentic and supportive relationships with other women. Our goal is to engage women of all ages and life experiences into God’s glorious purpose by offering their gifts, talents, and energies in service to others.
Cultivating Culture. Transforming Lives. Finding Real Connection.
Connect groups are the heart of First Baptist! Every woman has their own unique journey and season of life. Whether you are single, single again, newlywed, attend church without your spouse, or have a family, we have a Connect Group for everyone. We desire for you to find and cultivate real, lasting community with others in a similar stage of life.
