Welcome to ENGAGE!The Women’s Ministry of First Baptist Villa Rica.
The purpose of the Women’s Ministry is to engage, equip, and encourage women to minister to one another as the body of Christ.
Below are just a few ways we hope to ENGAGE with you.
Bible StudiesSunday Evening - We will be featuring the new Beth Moore Bible Study, “Law of Love” beginning Sunday Evening, Sept 16th from 5:30-7:00 pm. This class will be facilitated by Missy Yarbrough. If you are interested in participating, please email Missy Yarbrough or contact the church office (770) 459-5138 to request your copy of the workbook. The cost for the book is $11. Childcare is free.
Tuesday Morning - We will be featuring the new Beth Moore Bible Study “Law of Love” beginning Tuesday September 4th from 9-11am . The study is usually ten to twelve weeks and is accompanied by a workbook. These classes are facilitated by Mrs. Diane Stephens and Mrs. Jane Boss. If you are interested in participating, email or call the church office (770-459-5138) to request your copy of the workbook. The cost for the book is $11. Childcare is free.
Wednesday Evening - Beginning September 12, we will have a Wednesday Night Bible Study for ladies only. This study, “Missing Pieces” , will focus on Does God care? Is He fair? Is He even there? Although we may know all the right answers, they don’t always feel right. Explore these and other questions in this realistic look at the messy, mysterious uncertainties of faith. God’s ways don’t always make sense, but He is trustworthy. Come close to Him. Trust Him more than your feelings. God will reveal Himself and fill in your missing pieces. If you are interested in participating in this incredible new study, please contact the church office to reserve your copy of the workbook. You don’t want to miss this incredible new Bible Study on Wednesday evenings 6-7 pm. Childcare is free. For more information, please email Missy Yarbrough or call (336) 409-2303.
WMU (Women’s Missionary Union)The WMU offers ladies an opportunity to focus on the mission field. During our monthly meetings we pray for those on the mission field as well as identify a project or mission that can be done “here at home”. The Mildred McWhorter Circle meets once a month at the home of Mrs. Frances Armstrong. The monthly meetings are held on the first Monday of each month from 3-5 pm. The mission we choose for that month is financed and carried out by the members. In addition to these activities, we sponsor church missions such as the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox project of Samaritan's Purse and an annual Ladies Luncheon during the summer which raises money for a specific mission project as identified by the Georgia Baptist Convention. This opportunity to carry on God’s work is available to all ladies ages 18 and up. Please call the church office (770-459-5138) for more information.
MMO (Mother’s Morning Out)ENGAGE would like to announce that beginning September 13 we will have a Mother's Morning Out program. Mother's Morning Out program will be held the first, second, and third Thursday of each month. The program will begin at 9 am - 1 pm. The cost for the program is:
The first child is $10
The second child is $7
The third and remaining children is/are $5
These fees are for each week's participation. When your child is in our care, they will experience the love of God through music, crafts, activities, Bible Stories, and recreations. For more information, email Missy Yarbrough or call (336) 409-2303.
Engage4MomsEngage4Moms desire to offer community, hope, and encouragement to moms. We don't have all the answers and don't pretend that we are perfect. However, through our victories and more than not our failures, we strive to help moms realize their importance not only to their families but to their Savior, Jesus Christ, our LORD.
We at Engage4Moms desire to see women actively engaged in 4 distinct areas of their lives. First and foremost, we desire to encourage moms to be actively engaged with their Savior, Jesus Christ. Second, we desire to encourage moms to be actively engaged with their families. Third, we desire to encourage moms to be actively engaged in their community. Fourth, we desire to encourage moms to be actively engaged around the world.
If you are in the Atlanta, GA area, we would love for you to come join us. We will begin meeting, January 2013 at First Baptist Church Villa Rica. We will be meeting the 4th Thursday of every month. You may contact the church office at 770-459-5138 or contact Missy Yarbrough at (336) 409-2303. You may also contact us via email at engage4moms at gmail dot com.
