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.

Many weekly Bible studies are always underway, led by lay-women with a passion for serving the women of this church. See class information below.

Our Vision

  • Equip you in God's Word and grow you in a relationship with the Lord.
  • Enable you to discover your God-given gifts for ministry, determine needs in our church and community, and match those needs with your gifts of service.
  • Encourage you to build friendships within the body of Christ.
  • Edify and pray for each other.

Our Bible Verse

“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near." Hebrews 10:23-25

Tuesday PM – Hebrews  by Jen Wilkin

In this verse-by-verse study of the Book of Hebrews, Jen Wilkin explores how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). Through stories of Old Testament heroes and practices, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise. Explore familiar verses in context of the entire Bible, learning how to place your hope and faith in Christ alone.

Wednesday PM – Beginning September 9 – 6:30 -7:30 pm
The Fear of the Lord by Laurie Barnett
Throughout the Scriptures, the fear of the LORD is referred to in hundreds of verses. It is a gold mine… a treasure trove of precious truths and promises for the Believer. Together, in this study, we will explore some of those certainties as we discover what it is to “fear” God. We will learn that the fear of the LORD is not optional, but fundamental, to our relationship with Him. To fear Him is to love Him. It is our highest duty, a hallmark of godliness and a priceless source of joy and blessing for everyday life.

Wednesday PM – Beginning September 9 – 6:30 -7:30 pm
ANOINTED TRANSFORMED REDEEMED by Kay Arthur, Beth Moore & Priscilla Shirer.   Workbook cost:  $14 (if you haven't already purchased one in the spring.)  Note:  Please register even if you were enrolled in this study in the spring.

GATHER

NOTE: At this time we are not actively enrolling for Gather. COVID-19 cut short last year so the decision was made to have a re-do instead of creating new groups this year. If you would like to be put on a waiting list as a Sister or Mom, please click on the Sister Registration below. You will be contacted if there is an opening in a group. Thank you for understanding.

Gather is a Women’s Ministry program that connects all age women, from high school graduates to 100+ years old. Ladies that still have children in their homes or young singles are called Sisters. Ladies that are beyond the “children” years are called Moms. The purpose of Gather is to bring generations of women together to build friendships that honor God and to encourage one another as we grow in our relationship with Christmas and become the women that God intends for us to be.

Gather groups meet in homes monthly through the school year.
Gather Childcare is available during your Gather activities.

Below are short informational sheets for both "Sisters" and "Moms." Please read over that then register below.

Embrace Grace

FBC Forney has recently launched a new ministry/small group called Embrace Grace. This group provides emotional, practical, and spiritual support for single, young women who find themselves in an unexpected pregnancy. The primary goal of Embrace Grace is to empower the church to be a safe and nonjudgmental place for these young women to run to when they find out they are pregnant, instead of the last place they are welcomed because of shame and guilt. It is a 12-week program that teaches them about God's love and grace, and at the end we will give them a baby shower to honor them for choosing life and to help provide for their baby’s needs while using this as an opportunity to share the Gospel.

Volunteer Opportunities
We need your help! Would you prayerfully consider coming along side us as we help grow this ministry and serve weekly in the group meetings, or consider serving at the events that are a part of this program?

For more information on Embrace Grace ministries, please visit www.embracegrace.com.  If you would like to learn more about how you can get involved with Embrace Grace at FBC Forney, please contact Natalie Johnson at or 214-718-0020, who is heading up this group at our church.
