Mt. Vernon hosts ‘Women in Hats and Pearls Luncheon’

May 14, 2015


Mt. Vernon Baptist Church, along with several other congregations, hosted a “Women in Hats & Pearls Luncheon” on Saturday, May 2, 2015 at the North Shore Radisson. The program theme was: “Beauty in the Spirit” (1 Peter 3:3-4 Do not let your adornment be merely outward-arraigning the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel. Rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. NKJV).The event was filled with selections of Gospel Music, Praise Dancing by Sister Dorothy Smith, and words of encouragement expressed by Minister Laverne Morgan, which was followed by a delicious lunch buffet. The event was described as a “memorable afternoon of women fellowshipping.” Pictured (left photo, from left) are: Mrs. Marcia Ware, Sisters Ashlee Jasper, who was the soloist; Minister Laverne Morgan, the keynote speaker; First Lady Joyce Jackson, Soloist Sister Freda Robinson, and Hat Judge Minister Daphney Johnson.

Willie L. Jackson is pastor.
