Women's Ministries

Steamboat Rock Baptist Church encourages women to get involved. Below are the programs we offer for women to fellowship with other women in the church!


play & pray

Are you a mom with young kids at home? Need a morning out with other moms? Then Play & Pray is for you!  You will be encouraged in your faith and as a mom.  You can drop kids age 1 and under off at our nursery and kids age 2 & up will enjoy story and craft time.

We meet every Wednesday (starting September 27) from 9:30-11:00. Join us!

bright lights, big tables

Bright Lights, Big Tables is a time when ladies can get together on the 3rd Friday of each month (excluding December) anytime from 6:00 PM until midnight. 

Our time together is spent working on any craft that you need to work on.  Some of the crafts are scrapbooking, knitting, crocheting, sewing, and the newest thing; Pinterest.

Bright Lights, Big Tables is a time for great fellowship and a great way to make new friends.

dorcas society

This group of ladies meet on the 3rd Wednesday of every month in the Fellowship Hall at 1:00 PM September through April and at 2:00 PM May through August.  Our main goal is supplying baby layettes and bandages for our missionaries.

It is at these meetings that we cut and roll the bandages which are later shipped to our hospitals in Africa.  We also sponsor an orphan in The Chain of Love Orphanage in Africa.  We also have a time of fellowship with a light dessert.

All ladies are welcomed and encouraged to join our group.

Summary: A 6-Session Study of 2 Timonthy

We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves.

In this 6-session Bible study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live lives of faithfulness.
