“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things.” Romans 10:15
The purpose of the Women’s Ministry is to bring our women together as we seek to grow in our knowledge and love for the Lord. Our goal is to reach out in our community to share the gospel, to lend a hand, and to give encouragement.
Women’s Ministry Opportunities
These are evangelistic opportunities, as well as opportunities for growth throughout the year.
Casserole Ministry: Our women work together to keep a supply of casseroles at the church to be used as outreach to help those in need of a meal.
Heart to Heart Luncheons: With beautiful table decorations in place, we gather to fellowship, to get to know one another better, and to hear a wonderful speaker share her testimony.
Fall Retreat: Held either at the church or at a retreat sire, our women come together to focus on spiritual growth and prayer.
Outreach Events: Bringing our women together to reach out to our community and extend the love of Christ to those in need.

Flower Ministry – Led by Tommy Bender
The FBC Flower Ministry was established in 2004, whereby the flowers used in the church on Sunday are put into bud vases on Monday and delivered to members in hospitals, nursing homes, and individual homes of those who are unable to attend church due to health conditions. We also take flowers on occasions of sympathy and new babies.
