Transform – Women’s Ministry Conference

As children of God, we are called to not conform to the ways of this world, but to rise above, and be transformed through spiritual growth, accountability, and discipleship.  Each one of us has a special plan from God, one that is way better than you can even think.  As we become transformed into a godly women, our lives are evident of Christ to those around us.

Join us September 22 -23 for a women’s conference at First Baptist Church Jennings as we focus on transforming into the women God has called us to become.

The theme of this conference is “Transform: The Desires of Your Heart” drawing from Psalm 20:4 and Romans 12:2. The conference will be focused on transforming the lives of women in our community through the study and love of the word of God and aligning their lives with the God’s will. Throughout the conference we will meet for large group teachings, small group teaching, and discussion of specific issues we face. Worship through music and fellowship will also be a large part of our two day conference. Our prayer is that strong relationships will be sparked and those in attendance will be uplifted and encouraged find healing.

Be The Church

This summer, our staff has challenged the church to break the mold.  Instead of coming to church, it’s time to “Be the Church”.  All summer long, each member of the staff is delivering a different approach to meeting together as believers.  As we follow the first church from the book of Acts, we are practicing different aspects of what the earliest believers did.  Our key focus is to remain as true to Scripture as possible, while continuing to shine the light of Jesus Christ to our community.

42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to the prayers. 43 Then fear came over everyone, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles. 44 Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. 45 They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as anyone had a need.[a] 46 Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple complex, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with a joyful and humble attitude, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to them[b] those who were being saved.
