WMU and Women's Ministry
WMU and Women's Ministry are places where women of the church can become directly involved in God's work.
First Baptist Church hosts a Women's Missionary Union lucheon and program on the first Wednesday of each month at 12:00 PM. For more than 125 years, WMU has devoted itself to making disciples of Jesus who live on mission. We are dedicated to working with churches and believers to accomplish the mission of God. WMU equips all believers to live in unshakable pursuit to know God more, to show His love unconditionally, and to make disciples who make disciples. WMU provides relevant resources that will help you learn about, pray for, give to, and support missions.
