Mentoring

Better Together at FBC

Have you been wanting to get to know the other ladies at our church better?  Are you ready to make some new friends, have fun laughing together, and sharing what God has been doing in your life?  Well that is what “Better Together at FBC” is all about; building community and connecting women to Jesus.  Our events will simply be casual conversations (with food of course) held in various host homes throughout the year.  Watch the church announcements for upcoming events, make sure you have the First Baptist app on your phone and be sure to like the Women’s Ministry Facebook page to stay up to date on all of our events and classes. When you come to a Better Together event, you’ll learn about other women’s walks in the faith as they testify about what God is doing in and through them, you’ll have opportunity to share your own journey (if you’d like). We’ll be addressing current life issues and you’ll receive godly encouragement.  We’d really like to get to know you better too! As with all of our women’s events, confidentiality is the rule.  What is said there, stays there.  Right ladies?

Women’s Mentorship Program

The mentorship program promotes accountability, spiritual growth, and friendship as we walk through life together. Annually we seek mentors and mentees (those desiring to be mentored) for pairing. If you have a desire to be paired with a mentor, please contact Crystal Clark or Peggy Johnson. 
 
To register for the program you will need to read through the Brochure and At a Glance documents carefully, complete the three page Profile Form, and return it to Crystal or Peggy . We would love to answer any questions you have about the program after you’ve read through the packet materials. We are praying that you will seriously consider joining us next year

Secret Sisters

This two-fold program is a way to bless another lady in our congregation SECRETLY, and to be blessed SECRETLY. Sign-ups are are currently closed with the REVEAL happening in the fall. Sisters are asked to send notes of encouragement, small gifts as they are able, and to lift up their sister in prayer.

Events

Secret Sister Program

Ladies of FBC, do you enjoy being encouraged and blessed and doing the same for another? Then the Secret Sister program is for you! As another woman’s Secret Sister you will have the opportunity to encourage her with notes, small gifts, prayers, and any other ways you can think of. The best part is, it’s all done in secret until the reveal which is in late October. Beginning today you will find a Secret Sister form at the women’s ministry bulletin board in the lobby. You will complete the form and return it to the church office. We will draw the name of our Secret Sister May 5th after the 10:15am service so you’ll want to attend this meeting if possible. If you have questions, please call Cindy Maynard at 309-644-0028.
