NC DWM “A Day Apart” Virtual Retreat on Saturday, March 13, 2021 through Zoom
Special thanks to our 41 participants for the 2021 virtual “A Day Apart.” Our theme, “Thriving While Surviving,” infused the devotion and speakers of this event. During devotion time, we heard from Pam Morris, FCC Wilmington; Rev. Abby Catoe, FCC of Walnut Cove; and Ms. Clarinda Lipscomb, FCC Reidsville. The real-time testimonies of these women were heartfelt as each of them shared difficult circumstances they survived and how the Lord kept them in His Hands, and they have thrived. In our worship time, we had portrayals and informative speakers characterizing Biblical Women who survived and thrived. Thanks to: Rev. Marilyn Williams, Hagar; Claretta Witherspoon, Rahab; Eleanor Bradshaw, Bilhah and Zilpah (maids of Rachel and Leah); and Dr. Zenobia Fennell who spoke to us about Tamar. A special thanks to everyone who helped in any way throughout this two-hour event. It can be viewed on the NC DWM Facebook page and the NC Regional website.
