Pamper, Pray and Play

Last week I prayed, played and was pampered at the Aria in Las Vegas, NV for the Pamper, Pray and Play Conference for pastors’ wives. First Lady Doris Ratliff of Brentwood Baptist Church and First Lady Sheretta West of The Church Without Walls are the conference hosts. This was their 14th year of coordinating a stellar getaway for pastors’ wives. Their mission for the annual destination retreat is to encourage, engage and renew women in their work of loving the people of God.

A Jewel of Faith

This Sunday, September 18 will mark the 20th year of pastoral service of Dr. Harold A Carter at the New Shiloh Baptist Church. As part of the events to mark this significant passage of time the Women’s Ministry of New Shiloh kicked off the celebrations, last Friday night, by honoring the first lady Rev. Monique Carter. Sharing food and fellowship, the event A Jewel of Faith was a delightful evening to honor Rev. Monique Carter and her service in ministry with her husband.                                                   photo Minister Leslie Morrison exhorting Rev. Monique Carter

Getting Closer

Last February, the young people of Highland Park were invited to sign the floor with their name and a favorite scripture on the first level of the new church construction. On the last Friday night in August, members and friends of First Baptist Church of Highland Park were grateful and excited to get a long awaited first look inside the new sanctuary at the construction site and sign the floor before the carpet placement.
