Ladies of First 

If you are looking to get connected with other women to learn more about Jesus Christ, develop in your own personal walk, and build lasting friendships with other ladies, then you have come to the right place! Here are all the ways you can get involved in Ladies of First.


You're invited to join us April 5-6 as we head to Springfield, MO for the 2019 Spring Ladies Retreat, Bloom. Andrea Lennon, ABSC Women's Ministry Specialist and author will help unpack the depth of Colossians 2:6-7.

Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.

Ladies Bible Studies

We have Bible studies that meet throughout the year, but our primary Ladies of First Bible studies take place once in the fall and once in the spring. Click below to view the current weekly studies we offer.

Every few months, we spend our Saturday mornings brunching and we'd love for you to join us! We'll discuss upcoming events, studies, and you'll have the chance to connect with some of our leaders and other "Ladies of First." Brunches are at Neighbor's Mill Bakery & Cafe, in Rogers. We look forward to seeing you there! Check back later to see the next date for a brunch. 


Ladies of First, check back later for updated details on Festival of Tables 2019.  Festival of Tables is a great time to gather together with other ladies for fellowship and rest from the chaos of the holiday season. Invite someone to join you!


Once in the fall and again in the spring we have a ministry day in lieu of our regularly scheduled Ladies Bible studies. From cleaning the campus and organizing ministry areas to working the food pantry or baking cookies for first responders and much more, there is a place for everyone to serve in our ministry days.
