Day Dawn Baptist Church celebrated Women’s Day on July 27 in the church sanctuary.
The Rev. Patricia Holmes-Miller was the speaker. Her message lifted the hearts and minds of everyone, as her topic, “We cannot be what God wants us to be until our hearts are clean,” touched everyone present. She utilized her personal experiences to bring her message home.
Sister Ruby Jenkins brought the devotional team to the front to start the service. The team consists of Sister Mary Ann Jones, Sister LeShonda Reed (President, Youth Missionaries), and Evangelist Rosetta Terry.
The threesome stirred and inspired the congregation with scripture, prayer and songs.
The introduction of the Mistress of Ceremonies was then accomplished by Sister Angela Nelson, in the person of Sister Gwendolyn Mazyck, who came to the front singing, “Whose side are you leaning on?”
The program’s welcome was delivered by Sister Alexis Booker, the Day Dawn Baptist Church Sunday School Queen, and a kind response was provided by Sister Jeanette Perkins.
The program transitioned to the pulpit, with Doxology, being led by Pastor the Rev. Joshua Prioleau. A silent prayer for the sick and shut-in followed and an alms offering was received.
Visitors were recognized by Sister La’Jai Reid, 2013 – 14 Day Dawn Baptist Church Missionary Auxiliary Queen. Birthday recognitions were accomplished by the Mistress of Ceremonies and words of appreciation were provided by the President of the Missionary Auxiliary, the President of the YWCO, and the Chair of the Deacon Board.
Special presentations, as they prepare to take their vacation from the church, were given to Pastor Prioleau and wife Betty.
The closing song was provided, followed by the blessing and prayer. All that desired to do so, joined the guest speaker, in the beautifully decorated fellowship hall, by Hazel Crawford and Brenda Johnson, for a delicious meal.
Appreciation is express to all who had a part in making the program a success.
The Elijah Wright Health Facilities, located in Cross, will be officially dedicated Aug. 9 and the public is invited.
