The North Carolina Conference Women's Missionary Society celebrated with a refreshing service with Rev. Betty Strickland, Senior Pastor, St. John AME-Hampstead, NC. The scripture was Luke 8:43 with the message- "Press Your Way Through the Mess." Don't sit back and let someone do the work, it's your time--keep pressing!
The dynamic closing service sermon was delivered by Rev. Dr. James F. Miller, Senior Pastor, DuPage AME Church, Lisle, Illinois. His message was taken from Mark 3:1-4 on the subject- "Where is the Stewardship Legislation?" Is it lawful to do good? More emphasis should be placed on running for Jesus than running for an office. Take your faith journey because the "calling" takes precedence. The service concluded with the ordination and consecration of one new local deacon and four itinerant deacons.
THANKS BE TO GOD!!!
