St. Paul MBC Celebrates Women’s Day

Sojourner’s Truth Staff

“Women Walking Worthy” was the theme of this year’s Women’s Day at St Paul Missionary Baptist Church which, earlier in this busy church summer, celebrated its 100th anniversary. On Sunday, September 17, the congregation – women dressed in white and gold – welcomed guest speaker Crystal Dixon back home to Toledo to address the theme.

“Today, we celebrate the women of St. Paul and all women across the world who have chosen to ‘walk’ in a manner worthy of their calling,” wrote First Lady Linnie Willis in this year’s program. “Every woman who is a follower of Christ must possess certain attributes if she strives to walk worthy.”

This year’s service opened with the devotion/praise & worship led by Sisters Debra Gardner and Lynnell Jones and Deaconesses Marelen Cook and Marvine Brown. Then followed the Call to Worship, the Lord’s Prayer, the Women’s Day Litany, Poem and Song. First Lady Willis introduced the speaker.

Dixon, a Toledo native, is an ordained minister and published author who spent a number of years working at the University of Toledo and then with Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority. She is currently a resident of Avon, OH, a suburb of Cleveland, and is a member of The Word Church of Warrensville Heights, OH. She works with businesses, organizations, ministries and individuals with strategies to become more authentic and effective for good in the world.

This year’s Women’s Day chairperson was Sharon Hubbard who offered remarks at the close of service.  Co-chairpersons were Tiffany Dent-McDole and J’Vann Winfield.

St’ Paul’s pastor, James H. Willis, Sr, has been the congregation’s shepherd for 13 years. “Women of St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church, it is a blessing as well as an honor to be part of another great Celebration,” wrote the pastor in this year’s program.
