Preserving The Seventh Day Baptist Legacy
Every woman who is a member of a Seventh Day Baptist Church within our General Conference, is a member of the Women’s Society. We are an organization of volunteers, including the Board officers. As our key verse instructs, we endeavor not to be served, but to serve. We meet at least annually as a whole Society, usually at our General Conference Sessions. In between Society meetings, the Board of Directors carries out the mission and ministries of the Society. Our Board of Directors consists of 5 officers and 4 Committee Chairwomen. More information and our current slate of officers and committee members can be found on our website. Click here to visit the SDB Women’s Society Webpage
Mission: To glorify God through promoting individual and corporate growth within Seventh Day Baptists.
Ministry Focus: Developing gifts, growth, generosity, and corporate gathering in order to foster healthy relationships and sustain them among local congregations and the larger body of Seventh Day Baptists.
