Conference Descriptions

Gayla Parker........................................................................................Active Compassion; A Calling to Care

There are many people we pass every day that may need someone to have compassion on them. There are co-workers, family members, neighbors, and friends who may need to be “carried” to the feet of Jesus. Gayla will discuss from her very own book how you can make a difference in the world, and as believers how we can take that one step further and make a difference for eternity.

 

Marcella DeBerry.............................................................................. "Father, You Said"-Praying God's Will

If you have ever struggled or are struggling with your prayer life, you are not alone. If you don’t know what to pray or you noticed your prayers are rote or you simply exhausted your prayer vocabulary or youare not praying at all, then this session is designed for you. In this session, “Father, You Said, Praying God’s Will,” we will begin the journey to rejuvenate the joy of prayer through using God’s Word when we pray.


Rosetta Dowell................................................... Looking Back, Looking Forward: How to Pray for your
                                          Children/Grandchildren

Rosetta will share her testimony of how she continually prays for her children and grandchildren and God's faithfulness in and through it all.



Barbara Matney............................................................ He Said What?! Jesus' Amazing Words to Women

This session reminds us of conversations Jesus had with the women of the Bible, both those whose names we are told and some that their names are not mentioned! What Jesus said to these women can be applied to our lives today!



Jancy Glisson/Monique Kirkland............................................................................................ Breathless Box

Do you have memorabilia that reminds you of a breathless time in your life? Come decorate your very own “Breathless Box” to hold your memories that takes your breath away! Each session is limited to 20 ladies.
