Women at First encourages all the women of First Baptist to develop and flourish in the love of God.
While embracing our WMU roots, Women at First is devoted to creating avenues and activities that connect us in life-giving ways to one another and the world around us. Through opportunities for education, connection, and missions we offer our unique selves to the service of God’s Kingdom. Together, we can make a difference in the world for Him!
There are always new events to attend and studies to join-find out more in our Facebook Group, we would love to get to know you!
Leading the body of Christ to embrace and echo God's heart for the world.
Mentoring at First
Mentorship gives women an opportunity to develop and nurture deep spiritual relationships based on trust, vulnerability, and accountability in a world that seems to be increasingly shallow. We must be intentional in order to nurture the encouraging, loving relationships God uniquely designed women to share. Call (918) 587-1571 or email Alex Temple.
