Oakwood Women’s Ministry
 
Welcome. This page will have information related to the Oakwood Women’s Ministry and the activities they will be hosting.  The focus of the ministry is to engage the women of Oakwood in both interesting and entertaining activities as well as foster spiritual growth and fellowship. The focus of each event is Faith, Fun, and Food. Our hope is to create a fun environment, to grow in faith, and of course we would not be Baptist if food wasn’t involved! We look forward to getting to know you and building lasting, faith based relationships. Please note that the women’s ministry is reserved for women 18 and over please. Keep an eye on this page as well as the Events page for events hosted by the ministry and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at

The Womens and Teens Self-Defense Program is a comprehensive approach to safety training that includes awareness, risk reduction, posture and verbal skills as well as physical skills. It is meant to provide OPTIONS in the critical moments in which your personal space has been violated. It also aims to prevent assault against females and build confidence in their ability to stay safe. By cultivating the defensive mindset and the desire to fight for life, this program helps empower the female student from the inside out.  Click here to register.  Deadline to register is Saturday, August 13th!
