Welcome to GEMS!

(God Encouraging Me Through Sisters)

The Women's Ministry of First Baptist Church of Camden

The purpose of our Women's Ministry is to bring women of all ages together for Christian fellowship and growth, encouraging them to seek Him continually, serve Him faithfully, and share Him boldly.

"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing." 1 Thessalonians 5:11

     Are you feeling like life has tossed out more than you can do and no time for girlfriends and even God? We want to help and encourage women to take the time to slow down and connect our hearts to one another and to Jesus!

     GEMS (God Encouraging Me through Sisters) is our ministry for women of all ages, backgrounds, and interests. The one thing that unites us together is our desire to pursue a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and touch the lives of others with the gospel.

     You are invited to join us as we walk together on the path God has for us to be His light. Our desire is that every woman will feel welcomed, encouraged, and valued, as we experience the amazing love of Christ that transforms lives.

     We are not a perfect church, but we serve a God who is perfect. Come as you are. Taste and see that the Lord is good and His mercy endures forever!

     We look forward to gathering with you soon!
