Men's / Women's Weekend

I am so excited about this weekend. This is the first year that we are combining Men's and Women's Day. Our Men started off last weekend with a prayer breakfast. Pastor Newbill, pastor of the Progressive Missionary Baptist Church of South Bend, was our guest preacher. He's one of the newest pastors in the city, so I wanted to extend the hand of fellowship to him. Let me tell you, He really preached at BBC! The men that were in attendance were so inspired, that they were leaving talking about next year!!

On tomorrow, we will have our Annual Women's Conference. People from the region really look forward to the Women's Conference and it is usually well attended. We have 2 dynamic presenters on tomorrow. One is our very own, Sis. Arear Minor, who serves BBC as our choir director. She is very spirited and knowledgeable of the Word of God. I can't wait to hear her! Our other presenter is Minister Debra Givens, who is my cousin. She's a member of the Gary Christian Center of Gary, Indiana. She has an awesome testimony! She was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, but now is a powerful Christian woman!

Our celebration will conclude on Sunday, with our Men's Day in the morning and our Women's Day in the afternoon. I am a little uneasy about the morning, because I have been trying to confirm with the preacher I invited but I have been unsuccessful with that. I pray that all is well with him. (I won't post his name, don't want to bust him out!). I have prepared a message based upon our theme in the event that he does not show. I also told our Associate Ministers to be ready. Our speaker for the Women's Day is Sis. Tracey Buggs, who is one of our Minister's Wives as has been the tradition. Pray for us that all goes well and that God gets the glory out of these efforts!
