Are you a woman who wants to connect with other women in our church? Are you yearning for ways to deepen your faith through group prayer, study, mission involvement and discussion? Do you need some laughs and shared tears? If you haven’t considered a women’s circle before, maybe this is the year!

First Baptist Greenville is home to four Women on Mission circles which are open to women of all ages. Groups gather once or twice a month from September-May for Bible study, book study, guest speakers and prayer. Groups support various mission partners through giving and hands-on support. Visit http://firstbaptistgreenville.com/circles/ to learn more about each group, and contact the group leader if you’re interested in visiting one or more groups.

The image of a circle can be daunting from the outside, since it’s hard to know where to enter and how to get “in” the circle. On the other hand, once you enter the circle, you feel the strong energy created by those moving together toward closer relationship to God and each other. These are the women who will support you when you experience life’s ups and downs and the ones who will allow you to extend friendship to them when they need it. Take a risk and visit a circle—and trust that you will be welcomed with open arms!
