Upcoming Women's Events
Home for the Holidays
Saturday, December 9
10am - 2pm
Purchase tickets at the women’s ministry table during November
Home for the Holidays is a special time for women that includes a Panera-catered brunch, program, and shopping! We’ll fellowship and eat together around beautifully decorated tables. The program that follows will include Christmas worship songs led by some of our own women at First, and a Christmas message by speaker Darla Baerg. After that, there will be a time of shopping (12-2) with area vendors at their booths in the fellowship hall.
There will be great food, friends, laughter, shopping, door prizes, encouragement, challenge, and worship. We hope to see you there, and bring some friends!
February 23-25, 2018
Lakeview Camp and Retreat Center in Waxahachie, TX (link to lakeviewcamp.net)
We attended this multi-church retreat in 2017 and had such a great time we’re going again! This is a multi-church retreat, but church groups sit together and church group time is built into the schedule. We hope to take a big group this year, and would love for you to be part of this opportunity to grow in our relationships with Christ and together!
Speakers: Kathy Howard, Alta Lynn Gerlach, and Cynthia Hopkins
Worship led by Jeff Berry
Special Guests: Anna Berry (Anna Berry Designs and HGTV’s Nashville Flipped) and Fish Sticks Comedy

Track Mates is a discipleship ministry for women of FBC. Women are paired up to study God's word and pray together weekly. We are a church who strongly feel Jesus calling us to be disciples who are making disciples, and that is at the heart of Track Mates. If you are desiring accountability for a partner to encourage you in spiritual growth, or if you want the opportunity to spur on another woman in spiritual growth, Track Mates could be for you.
For more information or to sign up for Track Mates, contact Paige Allen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
