Women's Bible Reading 2024-2025

Women of FCBC, you are invited to read God’s Word together! Our goal is to prioritize God’s Word and develop the essential habit of connecting with Him and one another. If you are interested in accepting this invitation to read Scripture over the next 52 weeks with the aim of it becoming something you treasure and a way to spend time with Jesus, please contact Rynn Foreman. All ages are welcome to participate!

Women's Day Away

Thank you to everyone who attended and made FCBC’s Women’s Day Away such a special event! We explored the theme: The Lord is Our Portion, and had the sweetest opportunity to pause and prioritize time with the Lord and one another. If you are interested in hearing a portion of the teaching that was shared at this event, feel free to watch the video recording of Session One!

Beholding Jesus, Our Hope

Many in our body have gotten to know Colleen Chao through her book, In the Hands of a Fiercely Tender God. Click on the video and listen in on a conversation with Colleen where she shares practical wisdom gained over the years to help us fix our gaze on Jesus.

Let's Get Acquainted

Ladies gathered together after a long pause to glorify God and share the love of Christ with one another! We invite you to get acquainted with Women’s Ministry, women in our body, and the Gospel by watching this event. The aim of all women’s events is to provide a Christ-centered, grace-filled atmosphere.
