American Baptist Women's Ministries (ABW)



In commitment to Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, and to the mission of the Church and through the enabling of the Holy Spirit, American Baptist Women's Ministries provides the opportunities for each woman and girl to become and develop as God's person, build God's faith community, and serve God's World.



All women are invited to participate in ABW Ministries. Each woman is encouraged to participate according to her own needs, interests and gifts as led by the Spirit of God. First Baptist's ABW currently has three small groups, called circles that meet monthly.
