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!

The city of ancient Corinth was much like our own modern-day cities: a melting pot of electrifying cultural experiences to be had, along with the myriad pitfalls of spiritual depravity. Still, Paul wrote to the Church of God in Corinth - meaning God's Church is meant to thrive in any city and every circumstance in which we find ourselves. Paul's letter is as timely as ever.
Over 8 sessions, Kelly Minter will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live
by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.
