Ladies Spring Banquet 2019
“Believe in the Blossom”
At our Ladies Spring Banquet, we were privileged to hear Sis. Valerie Carter, Pastor’s wife from Kokomo, IN, speak about the Beauty in the Blossom.
As you entered the family center that evening, you could see the hard work that was poured out for all of the guests. Beautifully decorated tables, a pretty backdrop for picture taking, and each place setting with a notebook and magnet that read “Blessed is she who has Believed.” The Italian dinner that was served was absolutely delicious, and detailed right down to the dessert pudding cups, Yum! Sis. McFarland and her team did a fabulous job preparing and setting up for a fun night of fellowship.
Sis. Carter spoke about the blossoms in our life, and how we desire to be in bloom at all times. However, just as nature goes through seasons, so must we. There may be times in our lives when God decides to prune us, to remove the unnecessary branches that may be a hinderance to our growth in Him. It may not always be a pretty process, but the end result is always for our good. She said sometimes it’s difficult to trust His time and His way, but if we just believe, He can make all things new! (Rev. 21:5)
She ended her message with prayer. First, for ourselves to truly believe He can do the work in our lives, and then she had us pray for our neighbor. You could feel such a sweet presence of the Lord as we began to cry out for each others needs. It truly was a refreshing and uplifting time together. We encourage you to invite someone to our next event, you never know how it could impact their life! Thank you again to Sis. McFarland and all who helped make this banquet possible. Until next time…
Love and Blessings
