The goal of Women’s Ministries of First Baptist Church Fair Oaks is to point women toward God, provide opportunities to put down deep spiritual roots while caring for one another and connecting with women of all ages and phases of life.
Life can be busy as we balance family, work and service. You’ll find refreshment and renewal through our special women's events, studying God's Word, and encouraging one another. We hope you will come share your life’s journey with others who also love Christ, each other and our community!
Visit our “Women of Fair Oaks” Facebook page, join the group and you will get notifications about upcoming events.
