ALBUQUERQUE (BNM) – What was formerly known as New Mexico WMU’s Women’s Weekender for many years has undergone a name change for 2021. The event’s new name is Sisters’ Saturday. In addition, instead of being a single weekend event, several one-day (Saturday) events are planned.
There are four locations and dates to choose from this year: Aug. 14 at First Baptist Church (The People Church), Moriarty; Aug. 28 at Emmanuel Baptist Church, Farmington; Sept. 11 at Bethel Baptist Church, Deming; and Sept. 25 at Bethel Baptist Church, Roswell.
The theme for the weekend events is “Making Disciples of Jesus Who Live on Mission.” New Mexico WMU invites teen girls and women to spend a Saturday with other sisters in Christ for worship, prayer, sharing, shopping, learning and hands-on mission projects.
Registration for the events is required two weeks before each event. Register at bcnm.com/wmu or call Melissa Lamb at 575-760-1561. The cost for each one-day event is $25 for adults and $20 for teen girls. The price includes lunch.
The schedule for each Saturday is from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. The day will kick off with registration, a meet-and-greet time and shopping at the WMU WorldCrafts store. The main session begins at 9:30, with break-out sessions from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Lunch at noon provides time for shopping and sending missionary cards. The afternoon session starts at 1:00 p.m. with break-out sessions and concludes with the main session from 2 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Break-out sessions include “Dress A Girl” (Donna McFadden), “New Mexico Baptist Foundation” (Micheal Summers), “Teens” (Denise Clymer), “Christian Women Job Corps” (Teresa Howard), “Compassion Ministries / WMU WorldCrafts Store” (Elaine Henderson), “Spanish” (Sandra Fonseca), “Praying for Missionaries” (Melissa Lamb) and “Send a Card to a Missionary/Military Wife/Other” (a WMU Executive Board Member).
