Laurie Cole, founder and president of Priority Ministries of Houston will be the keynote speaker at the first Women’s Conference (There is a Season), sponsored by the Just Women’s Ministry of First Baptist Church in Aledo on Saturday, March 5 from 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
Heather Regimbald, FBC Aledo Volunteer and Conference Committee Chairman, said the event is an all-inclusive (non-denominational) session open to all women of Parker County.
“The goal of the conference is to inspire, love and encourage women toward a deeper relationship with God,” Regimbald said.
In addition to Cole, many of the women headlining the event are local.
Susie Hackleman, Corrine Breshears, Laura Place and Susan Dingmore are all on the program. Michelle Mathis of Southcliff Baptist Church will lead the praise and worship.
