Unity Banquet brings many together

Published 12:01am Wednesday, November 6, 2013

At 6 p.m. Nov. 9, the AMB Association will host its fourth annual Unity Banquet at the convention center.

It is the desire of the association to fellowship with area churches, church leaders of all denominations and races.

We hope that you will please consider attending this annual event.

The event will consist of singing from a combined choir under the direction of Mr. Alvin Shelby.

There will be recognition of special guests, businesses, power point presentation and special recognition of longtime encouragers of the church.

The guest speaker for the event will be Dr. Dolphus Weary of Mission.

Dr. Dolphus Weary is not a stranger to the Natchez area. He has made many trips to Natchez, speaking with various groups, pastors and churches in an attempt to bring people of the “Body of Christ” together.

Dr. Weary has written several books. His books will be on display for your viewing and purchasing.

He received his doctorate from Reformed Theological Seminary and is the past president of Mission Mississippi.

Dr. Weary will be introduced by his daughter who is a local physician here in Natchez.

The AMB association seeks to unite local National Baptist Churches in hopes of providing educational opportunities, fellowship and working on projects that will benefit all churches and the community.

We have established a future development fund in hopes of someday building a retreat whereby the association can offer education opportunities for young people outside the church setting.

This will also allow men of faith to interact with young men who may or may not be their biological sons.

A retreat can be used by the entire Adams County community for fishing, sports, hiking, swimming, picnicking and workshops. The Association seeks to work together with other churches for “Where there is Unity, there is Strength.”

Please consider coming by on Saturday night. Tickets are only $15.

For more information, please call 601-445-5995. Thank, and I hope to see you there.

 

The Rev. John Scott is pastor at Christian Hope Baptist Church
