March 3, the doors open at 3 P.M., and the meal and message begins at 6 P.M. and will end at 9 P.M.
Sacred Cross Assembly of God
This conference has proven to be a valuable teaching tool for women to embrace one another as Sister’s in Christ and carry one another’s burdens as worriers in prayer instead of tearing one another down with gossip and petty behavior.  It started as a one-time conference and has grown into statewide conferences several times throughout the year.
This will be a FREE conference and will feature guest speaker, Sheila Hindman Harper.
There will be a light meal provided, as well as some shopping booths set up (Robins Nest Boutique, Magpie Accessorize, and Rustic Charm).
Did we mention, there is NO COST to attend?!  We are inviting all women of your congregation to come and take part in this exciting event.  Bring a mother, sister, friend, neighbor or co-worker!
