Home to Girl Scout Troop 35017
First Baptist Church Springfield hosts Girl Scout Troop 35017 each week. Girls from five different city schools and various socio - economic backgrounds gather to explore the world, and focus on building Confidence, Courage, and Character. The troop is a mixed level group with Daisies, Brownies, and Cadettes. The girls focus on community service, business relations building, and organization and planning. In 2015, girls from the troop were able to send over 330 boxes of Girl Scout cookies directly to troops serving in the US Military over seas. They accomplished this through hard work and exploration of best practices in business management and community service.
Currently the troop is at capacity and cannot accept any new Girl Scouts, however, interested families can contact Shannon Meadows, troop leader, and she will help coordinate information regarding other local troop opportunities. You can contact her via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
There are lots of opportunities to get involved or simply enjoy good fellowship at First Baptist! This section is dedicated to some of the special events going on in the life of the church. We welcome you to find out more and join in the fun!
The women of First Baptist hold a retreat each year during the second weekend in November. We have reservations for two cabins at Buck Creek State Park for November 11 and 12, 2022. We traditionally gather for food and fellowship on Friday evening. Saturday brings opportunities for spiritual growth, more food, sharing, games, laughter, and support. A few women choose to spend the night in the cabins Friday and Saturday. Sunday morning we check out and attend worship at 638 S. Fountain.
“The circles of women around us
weave invisible nets of love that
carry us when we’re weak and
sing with us when we are strong.”
