Women's Ministry

Everything about the Women's Ministry is planned with the unique needs of women in mind. Through Bible Studies, mom's groups, retreats and special events, we provide opportunities for women in all circumstances to become fully developing followers of Christ while building lasting relationships with women just like you.


First Baptist Church Forney Women's Ministry will be hosting a retreat for women of all ages (completed high school) at the Lakeview Camp and Retreat Center. The theme of this retreat is focusing on cultivating our relationships with the Lord and FBC women. We pray this weekend will be one of refreshment and inspiration and that women would be encouraged to walk in godliness with one another, following Jesus in every circumstance of every day. We hope you join us for this meaningful time away.

When You Pray
A Study of Six Prayers in the Bible
by Kelly Minter, Jackie Hill Perry, Jen Wilkin, Jennifer Rothschild, Jada Edwards, and Kristi McLelland

Do you have trouble thinking of words to say to God when you pray? Are you afraid some emotions are too intense to express to God? Do you reach the end of a day only to realize you haven’t prayed at all? You’re not alone. Prayer is the way we relate to God, but sometimes it’s a struggle. Throughout God’s Word, we encounter many voices who teach us how to pray.

In this 7-session study, join with six beloved Bible teachers who will help you study prayers in the Bible that can inspire your own. You’ll learn that God welcomes your praise and lament, your thanksgiving and intercession. You’ll see examples of how to pray when you’re alone and when you’re gathered with others. Above all, you’ll notice there’s no one right way to pray. As you draw near to God through prayer, you’ll find your faith strengthened and your heart united to Christ.

You can buy your own book and join us on March 13.
