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!

Topic: "The Church and the Elephant--The Physical, Emotional, Social and Spiritual Aspects of Infertility"
Bio: Caitlin Walters is a member of First Norfolk and an Attorney with Hofheimer Family Law Firm. She married her high school sweetheart, Lance, in 2008. Soon after, long standing health issues revealed severe endometriosis and the beginning of their struggle with infertility. Ten to twelve percent of couples will struggle with infertility. If you aren't one of the 10-12%, you likely know someone who is. Join us as Caitlin shares her experience dealing with the roller coaster of hopes and disappointments while trusting God's plan will and trusting His hand, yet still desiring to be a mom. She'll also share ways individuals and the church can be a support to these couples, and share some top "Things Not To Say." For those dealing with infertility, come to be encouraged and to know you are not alone. Caitlin and Lance are currently expecting their first child, however, she is sensitive to the knowledge that this will not be the outcome for everyone who is on this journey, and she knows the challenge of saying, "Thy will be done" when the stick says "not pregnant."
Tickets are $6. Childcare is available by advance registration.
