JOY Women’s Ministry

Our goals in JOY ministry are to first of all bring women into a personal relationship with Christ and second to help them to grow in that relationship and in relationships with one another on a deeper level. We hope to offer a good variety of places and events for women of all ages and backgrounds to connect and get involved and we would love for you to be a part. Our Bible studies are the heart of our ministry and are complimented by other activities and events throughout the year. We are always adding activities to our schedule and always looking for new ladies to connect with.

Bible Study

It’s important to dig into the Word and fellowship and learn with other ladies, which is why we start a new Bible study session every fall and spring. We have a Thursday morning session (9:30-11:30 a.m.) and a Thursday evening session (6:30-8:30 p.m.) each semester. Childcare is always available by reservation during our studies. Check the events page for upcoming studies.

Bible Study Fellowship

We have an additional resource to offer our ladies at First Baptist Raytown this year beginning Wednesday, September 9. We will be hosting Bible Study Fellowship on Wednesdays from 9:45-11:00 a.m., following the school calendar. They will be studying the book of revelation this year. For more information or to register go to www.bsfinternational.org.
