Women’s Friendship/Discipleship Groups
Women’s Friendship/Discipleship Groups are open to women of all ages. These groups provide an opportunity to study and reflect on God’s Word, and to discuss the Christian woman’s impact on her family, church, workplace and community in today’s world. All of these groups are very welcoming and would be happy to have you join them. Pick a time that’s right for you!

God’s Green House – Environmental Committee
“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.” – Psalms 24:1
The mission of this group is to SEEK AND SHARE INFORMATION ABOUT ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES WITH THE CONGREGATION, LEADING US ALL TO UNDERSTAND THAT CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP INCLUDES ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP. The group initiated a recycling program for the church and went on an insight trip to Camden’s FCR Recycling Center to find out what actually happens to the recyclables after they are picked up at the curb. First Baptist of Haddonfield became the first church in Camden County to be recognized by the Camden County Division of Environmental Affairs for its recycling efforts. This group also advocates getting outdoors to enjoy and learn about God’s creation. They sponsored our first ever “Creation Sunday Service” which in prayer and music completely focused on the beauty of creation and our responsibility to God to preserve it. Outdoors that day, refreshments were served, children planted flowers, and a member of the environmental group displayed an awesome red truck which he had newly converted to electric power. Among its many goals, in the fall the group will be discussing an “Equal Exchange” fair trade coffee project and fundraiser.
The environmental group meets on a monthly basis in the church lounge at 7:30 PM on Monday evenings. Dates are listed in church calendar and newsletter.
This is a newly formed group whose mission is to PRESERVE THE HISTORICAL ARTIFACTS AND DOCUMENTS OF THE CHURCH. ALSO, TO HIGHLIGHT THE RICH HISTORY OF THE CHURCH TO ITS MEMBERS AS WELL AS THE COMMUNITY. A major goal is the preservation of the historic diary kept by the first pastor of the church, The Rev. John Sisty, which is dated from 1817 to 1838. The group will also be documenting the history of the church as the congregation nears its 200th anniversary which will be celebrated in 2018. In the fall of this year, a “Heritage Sunday” is planned to honor the church’s origins and historical significance. The Historical Committee and all the congregants of The First Baptist Church of Haddonfield give thanksgiving to the Lord for the people who contributed so much in the past. As we look forward to the future, it is with much faith and expectation.
Historical Committee Meetings are held on a monthly basis in the church lounge at 1:00 PM. Dates are listed in church calendar and newsletter.
