Whether you are a long-time member of First Baptist Madison or a newcomer to our church and community, we hope that you will find a place to grow, connect, and serve in the many areas of ministry we offer. Women’s Ministry is designed to help a woman develop in her Christian Lifestyle. That includes ongoing spiritual enrichment through group and personal Bible study and activities inside and outside the church. In the past, the women have also attended conferences sponsored by our church, association, state and national organizations.
Statement of Purpose
The Women’s Ministry of First Baptist Madison seeks to bring glory to God by:
- Involving women of all ages and walks of life in building relationships within the body of Christ.
- Offering Bible studies, activities, and special events that will encourage spiritual growth and fellowship.
- Equipping women to use their gifts and talents for service within the church as well as the community.
“…that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.”

Ladies Night Out
An annual event with a new theme each year provides an opportunity for women of our church and community to come together for a night of worship and fellowship. It includes table decorations provided by table hostesses that support the theme, an inspirational guest speaker, entertainment, and a delicious meal.
“I have a feeling a friendship was started that night!”
“I have seen God use ladies’ God-given talents in different ways as many have served together.”
“Each year the speakers and the musicians are outstanding, giving us a fresh word and a song to take home with us.”
“I can not believe that Ladies Night Out has come and gone!”
“This is another way for the Ladies at First Baptist to share the talent that our Lord has Blessed us with.”
