Women




Whether you’re a mom, a daughter, a sister, or simply just you, being a women presents a unique set of joys and challenges. At BBC, we want to share those joys and challenges with one another other, learn from them, and grow together to discover our identity and purpose in God.

Browse through our many LIFE Groups, Focus Studies, events, and ministries to learn how you can get plugged into a caring, creative community of women like you.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Women’s Ministries

BBC offers many ways for women to get involved by helping others or taking advantage of a particular gift or passion. Below are a few of these opportunities.

Apples of Gold

Facilitated by Carolyn Fitch. Please contact Carolyn to register by calling 370-4662 or email: fitchje@comcast.net.

Carter Baptist Women

The Carter Baptist Women meet the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in a member’s home. The group’s primary goals are missions service and missions education.

Each month the women participate in a different mission action project…

In the area of international missions, the group has sponsored several projects related to the work of the Scott Carter family, missionaries from Brentwood Baptist to southeast Asia for whom the group is named. Our group has provided birthday and baby gifts for the Carters, hosted a reception for the Carters while they were in the States last, helped with special ministry needs, and participated in mission trips to their country.

The group also supports BBC international mission trips.

We have provided hats, gloves, and socks for mission trips to orphanages in Moldova and medical supplies for the annual Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, mission trip.

The Carter Baptist Women also support local mission organizations and ministries.

In the past we have collected toiletries for the Christian Women’s Job Corps, canned food for Graceworks, and school supplies for the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home. Members have also worked at The Manger sponsored by Graceworks.

We have an ongoing relationship with the Brentwood Baptist Deaf Church, and several projects a year are focused on helping meet needs of that congregation, particularly the needs of the children. We have provided beach towels and goggles for children attending a summer camp, school supplies, and Christmas stockings or bags. At Easter and Thanksgiving we provide food baskets for a few of the deaf congregation families.

New members are always welcomed and encouraged to join us on mission. For additional information about projects and meeting places, please contact:
