“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.” - Romans 15:5-7

First Women Prayer
First Women meet in the bond of prayer each Wednesday from 5:30 to 6 p.m. in the Bride’s Room. We meet to simply pray—no fluff, no food, but just fellowship in prayer. For more information, contact Sharon Herrera (firstname.lastname@example.org).
First Women Bible Study
Also each Wednesday evening beginning at 5:30 p.m., several First Women gather for a time of Scripture reading, discussion and life application in Room 340. Contact Clancey Garcia (email@example.com) for information.
The Book Ins group meets in the morning on the first Tuesday of each month in the First Baptist Nashville Library.

Craft & Crop
Craft & Crop is held on various weekends throughout the year. It’s a time for the crafty ladies of First Baptist Nashville to come together for two days and work on projects. This is not exclusive to people who scrapbook nor is it exclusive to church members; it is for all crafters and all friends. For additional information, contact Margi Hawkins (firstname.lastname@example.org or 664.6050).
