On Saturday, we hosted over 100 teen girls & adults who participated in our 2nd annual Girls Day.
The theme this year was “Hope is the Anchor of the Soul” from Hebrews 6:19.
At least nine congregations from our area participated in Girls Day.
The girls were able to hear five different messages/classes on Saturday from some very capable women. Three of them being some of our own Creekwood ladies. Our keynote speaker this year was Trudy Brown. Our breakout class teachers were Lacey Sargent, Cathy McGaughy and Lauri Ann Itson (Robertsdale, AL).
Also, some special recognition should be given to Meghan Hardy and Haley Sargent who lead singing. Katherine Wheeler welcomed everyone and introduced the theme. Sydney Cox lead everyone in a prayer to begin the day. Also Taylor Ford and Raven Frazier helped by serving snacks & drinks.
There were several Creekwood ladies who helped with setting up, decorating, breakfast & lunch, and cleaning up. Those ladies include Holly Hall, Beatrice Deatherage, Katy Aldred, Emilee Clark, Lynn Barnes and Penny Davis.
And last, but certainly not least, I want to give a special thank you to Haley Gray. Haley has worked so hard on this event over the last few months. Haley came up with the theme and keynote/class topics. She made a lot of the decorations herself. Organized everyone to help. Handled all of the registration stuff. Contacted speakers and communicated their topic to them. Made preparations and bought all of the food for the day. Putting on an event like this is a lot of work. And I’m so thankful that Haley loves our teen girls so much that she’s willing to put all of the work, organization and effort into making Girls Day as successful as it is.
It truly was a great day. To God be the glory! — Eric
