"The Story Lives On"
Our watchword: "As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard." Acts 4:20NIV. Our focus is to commit to the telling of the gospel story at home and around the world.
At First Baptist we sponsor eight women's groups that meet monthly. Each group has a different
emphasis but all follow our six areas of missions focus. They are:
Pray for missions
Engage in mission
action and witnessing
Learn about missions
toward a missions lifestyle
Participate in the
work of our church and denomination
Our groups are named for missionaries serving in America and around the
pray for and keep up with them regularly.
