"I may have all the faith needed to move mountains 
but if I have no love, I am nothing."  Corinthians 13:2b GNT

We gather as sisters to experience how our faith can move mountains, how our love can change the lives of others. We offer encouragement, support, and acceptance as we journey together. We join in fellowship and worship, we pray for all to experience God's grace, healing, love, and forgiveness.

SAVE THE DATE to attend the 2020 Fall Gathering at
Lake Yale Baptist Retreat Center on November 13-15, 2020.

If you have never been to the Fall Gathering or you are a returning attendee, we would like to extend a special invitation for you to join us for a weekend full of fun and excitement.

Grant Opportunities: Share the Spirit & Let Your Light Shine

Did you know that the Florida-Bahamas Synodical Women's Organization has programs available to help defray the cost of attending the Fall Gathering? We know it’s not always easy being you. We don’t want you to choose between paying for prescriptions, groceries, or daycare and being in fellowship and worship with your sisters in Christ. 

If you are are interested in attending the Fall Gathering and resources are a concern, we encourage you to first reach out to your congregational unit to determine what, if any, local funds may be available. We then invite you to complete the Share the Spirit or the Let Your Light Shine (for youth grades 6-12) application and submit it with your Fall Gathering Registration Form. Funds are limited and are administered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Grants are not announced publicly.

Interested in making a contribution? The success of the Share the Spirit and Let Your Light Shine programs is the direct result of generous contributions from individuals and church units. If you are interested in making a contribution, please mail your donation to:
