First Fairhope Women

The ministry to women of First Baptist Fairhope and beyond is to…

Come to Christ, Connect with other women,

Commit to prayer and spiritual growth, Call to ministry and missions

Ladies, Join us for a Revival Prayer Walk at church on Thursday October 14th at 1:30. If you are unable attend, please pray where you are or come to the church at another time. Let’s pray Big for God to work in amazing ways during our revival to further His Kingdom! This event will be led by First Fairhope Women’s prayer ministry.

Most Christians agree that it’s important to study God’s Word, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start! Our busy lives, lack of experience, and uncertain approach to Scripture undermine our commitment to this spiritual discipline. How can we, as Christian women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible? This personal Bible study will utilize the book Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds by Jen Wilkin along with other resources to equip you to engage God’s Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart. Cost $7.00
You will be asked to choose which sessions you will attend: Tuesdays 9:00-10:30am, Wednesdays 6:00-7:30pm, Thursdays 6:00-7:30pm (Facebook Room Live)

Wednesdays beginning August 18
6:00-7:30|  Location: W201
A time of fellowship, mentoring, devotion and prayer for young moms. We are a group of women who love to come alongside other women to strengthen, encourage, affirm and support them as they grow in their faith in Jesus.

First Fairhope Women Prayer Group

This group meets Thursdays at 1:30 in the Brides Room for a time of prayer. You don’t need to sign up, just come join in this time of praying for the women of our church and for God to do a mighty work in Fairhope.

Our Groups

Bible Study

This year, our Ladies Bible studies will be designed to connect all women
in our church to a small group to study God’s Word. Those small groups
for women which are already in place, such as Sunday morning classes and D-Life groups, will be promoted in addition to Tuesday morning, Wednesday night, and online Bible studies for women in the fall and spring. Some classes will focus on personal Bible study and others will use video studies. A curriculum has been developed to train women at all levels of biblical literacy and will include core courses to build a strong foundation of faith. Our Bible study team this year will include: Rhonda Kelley, Kelly Gray, Debbie Tuggle, and Janet Hankins. Please join a Bible study class and grow spiritually with other women in our church.

Heartfelt Friends

The Bible clearly commands that “older women are to teach younger
women.” So, First Fairhope Women will seek to encourage intergenerational friendships as well as coordinate the Heartfelt Friends ministry for the women of First Baptist Fairhope. Heartfelt Friends connects “Moms” and “Sisters” in a comfortable home setting to build meaningful relationships and encourage spiritual growth. Please join us and share what God has been teaching you about life!

Leaders: Janet Hankins, Sharon Parker



Support Ministry

Women have spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional needs. As Christians, we have the help of the Lord and the support of other believers to live through some of life’s greatest challenges. First Fairhope Women will seek to support ladies who are facing crises, connecting them
with other Christian women who can relate to their challenges and give
them hope in Jesus.
Leader: Angie Lewis, Certified Professional Counselor, Christian Recording Artist, Sunday School Teacher, and On Staff Counselor for First Fairhope.



Welcome Ministry

New members to our church and new residents in our community benefit greatly from connecting with a body of believers. First Fairhope Women wants to be intentional in helping newcomers to our church and community feel warmly welcomed and get involved immediately. We need your friendly faces and your encouraging words to greet prospective and
new members, helping them find ways to grow in their faith and get involved in our church.
Leaders: Cheri Parrish and Cheryl Vickers


Prayer Ministry

The impact on our lives and ministry to women will be
in direct proportion to the time we spend with God in prayer. Our Prayer Ministry wants to encourage your personal prayer life and provide opportunities  to faithfully come together and pray. We are committed to making prayer a priority. We have been praying BIG for you, and we invite you to PRAY BIG with us!
We meet Thursdays at 1:30pm in the Brides Room.
Leaders: Joyce Bedsole, Holly McKenzie, Sharon Swearingen


Moms Ministry

Mothers are the nurturers in the home and have such influence over their children, but they need support and encouragement along the way. Moms of younger children can learn biblical truth and life lessons from older moms who have gone before them. Join with moms in our church to share life, and reach out to other mothers in our community who need the Lord to help them raise their families in faith.
Leaders: Tammy Shaw, Mindy Shepard


Christians must grow in their personal faith and make disciples of others. Evangelistic outreach and mission involvement should be a priority in every believer’s life. First Fairhope Women wants all women of our church to be witnesses in our community and beyond and to be missional in our homes. You can participate in the WMU’s Women on Mission group, connect with First Hope or the Missions Committee, use your gifts with the Hearts for God Sewing Ministry, serve on mission trip teams, volunteer with the Women’s Care Medical Center, and more. Be a part of our evangelistic outreach and mission endeavors.

Leaders: Kelly Gray and Rene Wilkins
