Women are essential and so highly valued in the Lord's church! Jesus rejected the cultural notion that women were unimportant and taught the radical idea that everyone had value in The Kingdom (Galatians 3:28). Each and every person is part of God's plan for the fitting and joining together of The Body (Ephesians 4:16). Women at Laurel are the life force that keep every program running smoothly. At Laurel, there are many ways, big and small, for a woman of any age to have a role in spreading God's word, reaching those in need, caring for the flock, and thereby growing spiritually! Please join us!

LADIES DAY 2019: April 6

Thank you to all the Sisters who made our Ladies Day special.  May the theme, songs, and message from Sara Reimers be one to remember

- My Sister's Keeper.

Ecclesiastes 4: 9 - 10 - "Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor.

For if they fall, the one will lift-up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up."

Thank You to the 2019 Co-Leaders: Renee Wharton and Wanda Oliver and the Ladies Day Planning Committee. 

The breakfast and the lunch were abundant and delicious.
