The Women’s Ministry at First Baptist Church on the Square exists to help women deepen their relationship with Christ as they fellowship with one another. We lead women to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, to deepen their relationship with Him through prayer, to learn to apply God’s Word to guide their daily lives, and to utilize their giftedness for service.
We have titled our ministry DEVOTED from the passage 1 Kings 8:61, “Be wholeheartedly DEVOTED to the Lord our God to walk in his statutes and to keep his commands, as it is today.” Our motto is Devoted, to Christ and one another. If you have any questions about our Women’s Ministry or events listed below, contact Amy Foss our volunteer Women’s Ministry leader at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure you scroll down to see our upcoming events in August, September, and October. Also check out the Bible Studies starting soon!

None Like Him by Jen Wilkin
Facilitator: Morgan Tomberlin
Wed. Evenings: 6:00 p.m., Room 307, started Aug. 17
10-week study. Book can be purchased here.
God is self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, immutable, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, sovereign, infinite, and incomprehensible. We’re not. But at the root of every sin is our rebellious desire to possess attributes that belong to God alone. Calling us to embrace our limits as a means of glorifying God’s limitless power, Jen Wilkin invites us to celebrate the freedom that comes when we rest in letting God be God.
Facilitator: Kim Smith
Wed. Evenings: 6:15 p.m., started Aug. 17, Room 304N
Group Video Experience Study Guide is $9.99 and can be purchased here.
When a Kingdom Woman retires for the evening, a frustrated and worn out devil ought to be saying, “We messed with the wrong woman today.” This study instructs every Christ-following woman how to tap into the power of God as she fulfills the purpose God has for her. With practical insights and applications from coauthor Chrystal Evans Hurst, Tony Evans explains how to unleash new purpose, power, and possibilities―in both the lives of Kingdom Women and those they love.

Instead of being just one more thing on your to-do list, you’ll find that these habits of faith can actually create more margin in your life—providing peace and rest as you walk closer with Jesus.
Simple Truths by Mindy Sillyman
Facilitator: Mindy Sillyman, email@example.com
Wed., 6:00 p.m., 7 sessions, starts Sept. 14, Room 301

Job, the Story of Unlikely Joy by Lisa Harper
Facilitators: Amy Foss, Jan Oliver, and Jennifer Stogner
Wednesdays, 9:30 a.m., begins Sept. 21
Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever overflow from your relationship with Jesus. Just ask Job, who clung to God’s goodness while all his worldly joys were stripped away. How is it possible to hold onto such joy in times of sorrow? In this 7-session study, we will learn to view pain as a way to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and trust in the Lord. His providence will never take you to a place where His grace will not sustain you. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
