FBC’s Women’s Ministry functions through primarily two groups, WMU and S.A.L.T.
WMU, or the Women’s Missionary Union, was formed in 1888 as an auxiliary of the Southern Baptist Convention for the purpose of religious evangelism. Today, the ladies of FBC’s WMU meet the second Wednesday of each month to spearhead mission ministries locally, state-wide, nationally, and internationally by being the hands and feet of Jesus in a hurting world. Their mission statement is to pray, give to missions, learn about missions, develop spiritually toward a mission life style, and to participate in the work of the church and the denomination.
S.A.L.T. (Sisters Abiding in Light and Truth) is a women’s ministry at FBC. The S.A.L.T. team plans and hosts ladies’ Bible studies at least twice a year. They plan events for women and families designed to share God’s Word, provide fellowship, and support various missions projects. Their mission statement is to cultivate a community of godly women, engaging with scripture and growing in the body of Christ.
