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.”
Colossians 1:10


Fall 2018 Women’s Bible Studies
Beginning September 2018

Fight Back with Joy by Margaret Feinberg
Sundays at 6:00pm
•Led by René Collins
•Begins September 9
In this study, Margaret reveals how joy is more than whimsy.  It is the weapon you can use to fight life’s battles.  It will help you expand your joy threshold by awakening to God’s fierce love for you; escape fear and regret by applying biblical strategies to whatever crisis you are facing; overcome depression as you re-ignite your imagination for laughter and celebration; discover freedom from the past by learning how to turn mourning into joy; and rise above endless demands and become more winsome, cheerful, and thankful.  No matter what your circumstances, you can practice defiant joy.  When you do, you will embrace a life that is richer and fuller than you’ve ever known before – a life radiant with joy.
