Richland Baptist Church to host women's conference
Richland Baptist Church will host its Annual Women’s Conference this Saturday, August 27th from 9:00 am until lunch. This year’s theme will be Called to Worship and features Mrs. Linda McDaniel as the keynote speaker. Linda is a long-time dedicated pastor’s wife, wise mom, fun grandma and gifted nurse with a heart for Jesus and equipping women to take the next step, or maybe first step, in their faith. Also sharing their testimonies of God’s faithfulness will be BCHS Junior Morgan McKinney and transplant recipient Gina Porter. Worship will be led by Beth Embry. Joining her will be Lodema Burgess, Hannah Phelps, and Janesa Webster.
Debbie Young, with Samaritan’s Purse’s Operation Christmas Child, will share about the work done by OCC to spread the gospel and God’s love to children all over the world, through shoe boxes filled with gifts as well as support for the education and other needs of these children. Those attending the conference are encouraged to bring a pair of flip flops for a girl or boy age 2-14 to include in an OCC shoebox. There will be a special time of prayer for the children and their families who will receive these gifts.
The conference will conclude with door prizes from many local businesses, followed by a delicious lunch provided by Lauren Henderson, and Heather and Erin Tyree.
After attending a women’s conference in Ohio County a few years ago, coordinator Paige Craig knew she wanted Richland to host one. Says Craig: “getting to be a part of a large group of women coming together from several different counties is incredible! God calls us to love and encourage one another and I can’t think of a better way to be encouraged. I am so excited about our speakers this year and the opportunity to worship, praise and grow in the Lord with so many other women.” Craig encourages women whether long-time church members, or having never been to church before, to attend.
