This past Saturday, over 200 women, college-age up to senior adults, gathered together to “Celebrate Women’s Ministry.” Not only was it an opportunity for our ladies to hear from our new pastor’s wife, Rachel Church, about her life and ministry, but also an opportunity to learn about what First Women’s Ministry “DOES” and respond to the call to get involved.
If you’re a woman at First Baptist, you’re a part of First Women’s Ministry,” said Rene White, who has recently taken the role of First Women’s Ministry Chair. “You have gifts to share and we need you,” added Rachel.
One of the priorities of First Women’s Ministry is facilitating women serving our church, community and even beyond. In that vein, the event also included a service project for Operation Christmas Child. Women chatted around their tables as they assembled sewing kits for teenage girls, an often overlooked demographic of shoe box recipients.
Alex Hipkins, a young professional who recently joined the church, said, “As a new member at First Baptist, I found the event to be a great way to meet women of all ages! It was an opportunity to put names to the faces I see every week and meet new people.”
