womens dayUnion Hill Missionary Baptist Church held its annual Women’s
Day Service September 20, 2015 at 3 p.m. The theme for the service
was “Jesus’ Women of Virtue & Their Daughters in the 21st
Century.” The readings were from Proverbs 31:10-31 and Titus
2:3-5. It was the 115th anniversary of the inclusion of the Women’s
Auxiliary in the Baptist Convention and the congregation
recognized Dr. Nannie Helen Burroughs for her work in helping
establish women as a force within the denomination. Evangelist
Patsy McNeely was the guest preacher. She urged the congregation
to stand out, not by putting oneself above others, but
by behaving differently. “If we claim to be of the church then
we cannot adopt the ways of the 21st century,” she said. “We
were created to use the resources God has given us as a treasure
chest.” The ideal vision for the modern woman remains unchanged
from the qualities discussed in the reading from Proverbs,
Evangelist McNeely said.
