Women’s church classes to be offered
The Women’s Auxiliary of the Antioch Missionary Baptist Association of Adams County invites you to join us as we let our light shine in our Fall Session at 6:30 p.m. Monday at Pilgrim Missionary Baptists Church, 117 Pilgrim Blvd.
At this session, we are excited to offer two classes
“The Role of the Deaconess” will be taught by Deaconess Lee Pearl Battieste of Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church. This class is an introductory study and overview of the role and qualiﬁcations of the deaconess with special emphasis on empowering the deaconess with spiritual leadership, servant-hood and pastoral support in the church.
The course will offer ideas that will enable the deaconess to more effectively perform her duties and responsibilities.
Judy Smith of the Salem Baptist Church of Fayette will present “Women Strengthening Women Through Biblical Discipleship.”
This discipleship class is to introduce and transition women through the developmental stages of an effective discipleship ministry. Women will understand discipleship basics and be encouraged to engage in at least one of the dimensions of discipleship education and training. We will learn the definition of biblical discipleship — what discipleship is not and what discipleship is; the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.
Even though this is a Woman’s Auxiliary Session, men are invited and encouraged to attend. While women are in class, the men will have a class also on Baptist doctrine presented by the Ministers’ Union.
After the classes, an inspirational message will be presented by Sister Agnes Cruel.
Music for the evening will be presented by an anointed choir under the direction of Brother David Hendricks.
Women, if your church woman’s group is not a part of us, we ask you to attend and consider joining. All women are asked to dress in white as a show of solidarity.
Pastor Melvin White is the moderator of the Antioch Missionary Baptist Association of Adams County and Sister Linda Gooden is the Executive Director of the Women ’s Department.
