Annual Retreat in March
Each year in March, we set aside time for our members to let go and let God take control of our lives. This is a time of reflection and renewal. We look forward to this event each year as we journey to the mountains to rejoice, rejuvenate and restore. When we set aside time to praise God, great blessings come down. Women have a newness in their attitudes after attending this event and that is what we seek. We give them so much information and resources while there. Attendees are linked with a prayer partner while there, so that during rough times, each person has a confidant to talk to. This helps to remind them that though, the retreat ends, the network of spiritual friendship continues throughout the year. No one goes away without a prayer partner. Everyone leaves spiritually-filled.
Annual Banquet in October
This is our annual fund-raiser. It is an occasion to, not only reflect on the accomplishments of the Ministry during the year, but an opportunity to introduce friends, spouses and relatives to the Ministry's purpose and mission. Because it is a formal event, it also marks a great opportunity to enjoy the glitz and glamour of the occasion. While enjoying delectable dishes, attendees are also treated to a dynamic speaker who delivers a spirited and purposeful message. Participants take pride in knowing that they have contributed to the Ministry's success by playing a part in its largest fund-raiser.
Annual Health Fair (Varies)
The purpose of our annual Health Fair is to promote and inform distressed and at-risk populations about the importance of good health. We encourage preventive lifestyles, healthy eating and exercise. Officially labeled the "Spring Evangelical Outreach", we often provide a health-mobile is on hand to offer blood pressure, diabetes, and stress screenings. Information is provided on high blood pressure, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, etc. Attendees have an opportunity to discuss their health concerns with medical professionals that are on hand. It has proven to be a successful event wherein many attendees have been prompted to visit their family physicians after receiving health screenings. We are proud of our efforts to inform citizens about good health because many cannot afford medical attention and this health fair serves a portal of vital information.
