Women's Ministry

Thrive

The women of First Baptist Church enjoy meeting for Bible Studies, fellowship and an annual event such as a simulcast like Priscilla Shirer or a retreat. Our women enjoy doing games and crafts together as they seek to offer a network where women can come and share with one another as they seek to be the Proverbs 31 woman. Summer and Fall Bible studies are a staple for our women. If you want to have a place to meet with women of all ages who can share and encourage one another, then getting plugged in to our women’s ministry is a must!

Men's Ministry

The Men’s Ministry at FBC is a place where men gather quarterly to fellowship and have a good time just being men. We usually eat a lot of food and watch the latest sports activity or play games like cornhole. In addition, if the men become aware of any special needs that require assistance like home repairs, we all pitch in and help “fix” what needs “fixing.” It’s a great place to get to know other men in the church and get away from the pressures of life.

For more information about our next scheduled men’s event call the church office at (575) 393-7183 or check the church calendar.
