“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.

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.

Precept Ministry - Led by Doris Slappey
Correct observation leads to correct application of the Word, and the Holy Spirit makes the Word fresh, new and alive to all of us. The Precept study at FBC is open to our ladies as well as those from other churches. This gives us the opportunity to encourage women who have no church home to become involved in our church. We are blessed to have a women’s ministry that places great emphasis on studying God’s Word.

Healing Hearts Ministry - Led by Jean Jordan
Healing Hearts is a vital part of the Women’s Ministry. Our purpose is to minister to women who have lost their husbands in death. We visit them in their homes and give them a basket of items containing scripture to help them through their grief. We want them to know they are loved. We try to meet at least every other month for lunch and have a special speaker or devotion and a special time of fellowship.

Martha’s Ministry - Led by Nell Moss
The purpose of Martha’s Ministry is to provide meals to the First Baptist Church family in time of loss (death) of immediate family. This includes spouse, child, and parents who are not members of another church.

Women’s Missionary Union - Led by Sue Quinn
Woman's Missionary Union (WMU) of First Baptist Church is affiliated with the National WMU and the Alabama WMU. WMU has played a vital role in the missionary efforts of First Baptist for many years.

Our WMU supports the BBA in sponsoring the Ministry Center at Green Springs:

  • Two food drives each year for the Green Springs Food Pantry

Our WMU is also involved with the BBA ministry of "Caring Hands" whose goal is to meet the needs of people who are experiencing a medical crisis.
