The Women on Mission (WOM) and Women’s Ministry of First Baptist Church provide opportunities for all women in areas of ministry and spiritual growth. The monthly meetings of the WOM are held on the second Tuesday afternoon. Members meet to learn about our Southern Baptist missionaries serving in foreign lands and here at home and to pray for their needs. A past ministry of this group is “Witnessing Dolls”. These dolls have found a home both here in our community and around the world. During the last five years the women have answered the challenge to provide a pillowcase dress for each girls’ shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. Currently the women are sewing reusable sanitary pads for the young women in the villages in Haiti.
First Baptist Church also sponsors several women’s events to provide ladies with opportunities for fellowship, information, and spiritual encouragement. Recent events include a Christmas Cookie Swap, the IF Gathering at church and a Widows Encouragement Retreat at Fort Bluff Camp. We encourage all of our ladies to be a part of these ministries.
The Women on Mission meet each month on the second Tuesday at 1:30pm in the Adah Eaves Room. (Currently not meeting due to the coronavirus) All women are encouraged to attend this mission meeting as we pray and learn of our missionaries serving here at home and in foreign countries.
