Spring Fling 2012: Showers of Blessings

Our 2012  Spring Fling was a huge success! Over 40 ladies gathered for  "Showers of Blessings". I was amazed to see as many guests as Pearson members that afternoon....which was the greatest success!

The purpose of this event was to invite unchurched or de-churched friends to Pearson and share the love of Christ with them. So often times people are hesitant to attend church or Sunday school when they have not been in a while. They will, however, attend a social event. Our goal in hosting the Spring Fling was to create an environment where the ladies who attended would feel welcome and loved so that they may be more willing to attend church, Sunday School, or Bible Study.

This was also an opportunity for some of our ladies to serve on the FLO Ministry Team who had not done so before. It is always interesting to me to watch ladies discover how they can use the gifts God has given them.

This was our only fundraiser for the Ladies Ministry for the year and it was a success on that level too!

Debi Green was our guest speaker. She shared her testimony and painted a beautiful picture of how God was present through all the difficult times in her life. She shared how God comforted her during her battle with cancer, the death of her father and several other difficult situations in her life. She is a tremendous source of encouragement and her testimony is inspiring.


"For Ladies Only" is the ladies ministry of Pearson Baptist Church in Pearl Mississippi.
