The Women’s Ministry of First Baptist Norfolk exists to glorify God by reaching, teaching, and encouraging the women of our church and Hampton Roads. Our ministry is designed to help women connect to one another in settings where they can build meaningful relationships with other women as they come to faith in God, grow in Christian maturity, and live out their faith by service others. Our mission is to provide opportunities for women to grow in their faith as they make friends who can encourage them on their journey with God. Our Bible studies, LIFEgroups, encouragement groups, mission groups, community ministries, and special events are planned with the needs of women in mind! Many of our ministries provide wonderful programs for preschool age and homeschooled children. Our desire is for women to Love God, Love Others, and Live the Mission!


Elijah - Faith and Fire

online + in-person
Groups begin as early as September 12

Book Cost: $17. Elijah emerged as the voice of unapologetic truth during a time of national crisis and moral decay. Yet he remained faithful! This is the same kind of faith in God that we need to remain steadfast in these current times. In this video-based study, Priscilla Shirer leads us in a fresh look at Elijah and the difficult choices of obedience that kept him anchored, sharpened his faith, broadened his impact, and invited heaven’s fire to fall.

There  are in-person and virtual groups available. Participants in virtual groups watch the video on their own and meet together using Zoom video conferencing.  Available groups are listed on the registration form. Click or tap below to explore group options and register.
