More than 1,200 women from across the nation joined hands and hearts in solidarity to worship their savior and share stories of hope and fulfillment during the Uniting Sisters 15th Annual Luncheon held at Martin Crosswinds in Greenbelt April 22.
Hosted by Sisters Keepers Inc., the Waldorf-based religious organization was formed by seven women on Feb 20, 1997, and has since spawned three more Sister Keepers organizations in North Carolina, St. Croix, Texas and New York, to further its outreach of fellowshipping with other Christian women around the world who are committed to Jesus Christ.
During the gala event, each woman initially received a tiara, to acknowledge that ever y woman is queen and very special. Throughout the program, the speakers spoke words of encouragement to the women from all backgrounds can come together to encourage one another through worship.
Diana Wilson, Sisters Keepers Inc. president, was happy at the turnout of worshipers who participated in the annual luncheon.
“In the Bible, Ester was a queen and every woman has a crown. So, we want every woman here to feel like a queen,” Wilson said.
“We have been encouraging for over 20 years and it’s been a blessing. What we do is to help women feel better about themselves, better about others, and better about the world. We have decided that women can be their sister’s keeper and they can be there for each other. And we don’t want their husbands, their jobs, we just want them to be free, happy and peaceful in a good world.”
Among the guest speakers were Pastor Tina Watson, co-founder and senior pastor of the Friendship Community Church Int. of Greenville, NC., Minister Paulette Holloway, Vikki Johnson, Chaplain, TEDx speaker and author, and Rev. Willette O. Wright, ordained elder, Heart Church Ministries.
During the event, worshipers were treated to Ministry in mime, song and dance by the M.L.A. Mime Ministry and US Dance Ministry respectively.
At the concluding moments of the program, every woman was presented with special gift bags to commemorate their visit.
“I believe God has appointed us such a time as this to come together in the name of Jesus and change the world. And even if we can’t change the whole world, we can change our world,” Wilson said.
