  Texas WMA Spring RetreatSaturday, May 2, 2020,

at Lakeridge Baptist Church in Lubbock

Pastor Raif Turner and the Women’s Ministry of Lakeridge have graciously offered to host this special day of worship, praise, fellowship, and Bible study.  The ladies of Texas WMA are especially anticipating the opportunity to gather with our sisters in Christ, welcoming new ladies from across the state to join together to honor and glorify the Lord.  We are praying that our hearts will be lifted in unity and love because of the faith that we share, and that we will be inspired and challenged to serve Him together as never before.

The scriptural theme of the day will be “
The Miracles of Jesus.”  Breakout sessions and special presentations will focus upon the truths and inspiration we are given for our daily spiritual walk through the biblical accounts of the miracles of Jesus.

Lunch will be served and childcare will be provided.  A registration form for the meeting, hotel information, and further program details will be forth-coming on the Baptist Progress Auxiliaries page, the Texas WMA webpage, and in a mailout to BMA churches and missions throughout Texas.  There will be no registration fee for the meeting and lunch will be complimentary.
