Mt. Pleasant churches plan women's conference
A committee of women from Pennsville Baptist Church and Wooddale Bible Brethren Church in Mt. Pleasant will host its seventh Women of the Way conference.
The conference is scheduled for May 16 and 17 in Pennsville Baptist Church. The speaker will be Leslie Vernick, Christian counselor and author of “The Emotionally Destructive Relationship” and “The Emotionally Destructive Marriage.” Her topic will be humility, becoming the best possible you and how humility helps to build great relationships and repair damaged ones.
Vernick will address how to handle emotional abuse, especially in marriage, and will encourage those struggling with difficult relationship problems.
“A few of us ladies had been going out to Lancaster every year to a women's conference there, and we just decided that we really wanted to have something closer to home,” said Bonny Coffman, a member of the organizing committee. “Ladies from Wooddale Bible Brethren were involved from the beginning.”
Attendance averages between 150 and 220 each year.
Those wishing to attend need to register. Cost is $20, which includes refreshments and a Saturday morning brunch.
