Women on Mission

"The Story Lives On"

 

 

 

Our watchword: "As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard." Acts 4:20NIV. Our focus is to commit to the telling of the gospel story at home and around the world.

At First Baptist we sponsor eight women's groups that meet monthly. Each group has a different emphasis but all follow our six areas of missions focus. They are:

  1. Pray for missions

  2. Engage in mission action and witnessing

  3. Learn about missions

  4. Support missions

  5. Develop spiritually toward a missions lifestyle

  6. Participate in the work of our church and denomination

Our groups are named for missionaries serving in America and around the world. Members pray for and keep up with them regularly.
