Beloved Baptist Ministers' Wives and Widows of DC Sisterhood,

I pray this message finds you in the best of health and enjoying your summer break.  We are excited about the wonderful second half of this year we have ahead of us and the officers of the BMWMWA are working throughout the summer to ensure our upcoming meetings will be enlightening and fun-filled fellowships.  Meanwhile, this month, there are two events involving two of our Sister members that are worth noting and supporting:

1.)  New Canaan Baptist Church will be celebrating their First Lady and our long time member, Minister Ellen R. Sims, on Wednesday, August 24, 2016 at 6:00pm.  The event will be held at New Canaan Baptist Church located at 2826 Bladensburg Road NE, Washington DC 20018.  For more information, please contact Allison Fassett at 301-980-9853 or Wanda McLendon at 301-336-7884.  Please RSVP by August 14, 2016.

 

2.) Join us in witnessing The Elevation to The Office of Bishop of Bishop-Elect Eunice T. Turner on August 27, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. The service will be held at The Miracle Center of Faith Missionary Baptist Church, 9161 Hampton Overlook ~ Capitol Heights, MD 20743. The Senior Pastor, Bishop Michael C. Turner, Sr., Pastor & Board Chairman, and North and South America Bishop Mike Okpokpor, Presiding Bishop will lead the service.  

 

And finally, we also have Rev. Gail Brown-Johnson, another BMWMWA Sister, teaching at Faith Temple #2's Women's Conference on Saturday, September 10, 2016, along with First Lady Trina Jenkins of First Baptist Church of Glenarden, Upper Marlboro, MD; and Elder Latoya Brewington-Dickens of Christ Temple of Praise Church, Wilson, NC. Faith Temple #2, pastored by Bishop La Vaughn Hughes, is located at 211 Maryland Park Drive in Capital Heights MD. The Women's Conference is September 9-10, 2016 and full registration fee is only $40.00 which includes conference materials, continental breakfast, DIVAS lunch and the messages from the Lord delivered by these dynamic Women of God.  Please support our members when and where you can.

 
BMWMWA President Sherl Streeter

 

Our Purpose:

“We promise to strengthen the bonds of friendship; strive towards a wholesome, harmonious, sympathetic, and sisterly relationship among ministers’ wives and widows everywhere, and to practice and uphold the great Christian principles given by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

Our Theme: “Sisters with a Legacy of Love and A Spirit of Service”

“3 Instead of being motivated by selfish ambition or vanity, each of you should, in humility, be moved to treat one another as more important than yourself.  4 Each of you should be concerned not only about your own interests, but about the interests of others as well.  5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.”    Philippians 2:3-5
