Women's Ministry
First Baptist has an active Women’s Ministry. Several events are planned each year and there are many opportunities to come together as women to learn and grow in Christ.
Bible Study on Tuesdays at 4:00 p.m. in the Family Life Center. The current Bible study is The Gospel of Mark.

Lucy Wagner WMU – WMU stands for Women’s Missionary Union. The main purpose of WMU is to educate and involve preschoolers, children, youth, and adults in the cause of Christian missions.  WMU spends time learning about the missions activities around the world and learning how to best support these activities.


Brothers And Sisters In Christ

This very active senior adult fellowship, called BASIC’s, elect their own officers to plan and conduct a full range of opportunities for adults in their senior years (age 50 and older).  They regularly meet for meals, programs, excursions, choir rehearsal, and ministry actions.



 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such away that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” 
Matthew 5:14-16 (NASB)
