Services and Activities:
Members of the Widows and Widowers Support Ministry meet monthly with an average of 10 members in attendance.
They come together to support and uplift each other, and to share information and experiences with newly widowed persons.
There are more than 150 widowed persons at First Baptist. Although all of them
do not attend the monthly meetings, they do enjoy the social functions and programs that are planned. Some of the activities
include: sightseeing and shopping outings, and holiday fellowships which often times include widowed persons from other churches.
