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!

ladies bible study


by jen wilkins

This study of James on living a life of Genuine Faith will step all over our toes. “James” is for any lady wanting to live out your Faith during this time of pandemic, political, and racial time in the US. Also good for our church during the transition time we are currently walking through. Consider and pray before you start this study that you will allow the Holy Spirit to deal with you on your personal journey with Him and not get stuck where you are because you are not willing to let “whatever” you are dealing with go.

Update on the upcoming Bible Study!

We will have 2 options for the James bible study. One For those that want to come to the Fellowship Center

and one for those that prefer to stay home & ZOOM.

We will begin next Wednesday at 10:00 am. for both groups. Bring your mask or plan to spread out at your own table if joining in person.

Those wanting to do ZOOM, we can send you a link. Let Susie know if you need the link.

Books will be waiting on you next Wednesday or pick up in the office on Monday for the Zoom group.

The study is FREE on Wednesday mornings beginning on Sept. 16th at 10:00 am on your computer, iPad or in person. The study is 11 weeks. Susie Gerrald and Mary Lee Addis will be leading.  Sign up in the Welcome Center, the office, or by clicking on this link: James Bible Study Sign up
