April 28th and 29th brought our State CWC Convention. More than 90 women from around the state met at the Holiday Inn in Midland. What a great host they were. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the food was delicious.
Our theme followed the national theme “Deep Roots.” One of our ladies made a five foot felt banner with tree roots. She made green leaves for us to put prayer requests on and then fasten to the tree. Before we left for home, we made these requests the focus of a group prayer time.
Natalie Neal did a great job of leading us with songs to prepare us for the Holy Spirit to speak to us.
Reverend Carol Warner Ligons was our outstanding speaker. She is a talented speaker who lets the Holy Spirit guide her. Carol challenged us to grow so our roots will grow deep. Our theme verse was Colossians 2:7, “Let your roots grow down into him and let our lives be built on him. Then, your faith will grow strong in the truth you are taught and you will overflow with thankfulness.”
I would like to thank all the ladies who worked in planning and had a part in making the convention a success. Thank you!
