Marion church hosts guest speaker

MARION — Ladies, mark your calendars now for the annual Spring Luncheon Saturday, May 12 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Marion Baptist Church.

Get a group together for this special women’s event — bring your mother, sisters, daughters, granddaughters, nieces, friends, neighbors and coworkers.

Continuing a tradition of more than 25 years, the women’s ministry group, BYKOTA, sponsors the annual luncheons. BYKOTA is an acronym formed from the words Be Ye Kind One To Another from Ephesians 4:32.

Over the years, hundreds of Marion area women have attended the luncheons and enjoyed uplifting speakers, songs, music and good food.

The guest speaker this year is Marion resident Peggy Hoard. Her topic is the relevance of the motto Be Ye Kind One To Another to Christian women today as they strive to strengthen their spiritual lives. Other program highlights include music and songs.

Hoard was born and raised in Marion and lives with her husband Bob on the family homestead. She is a prolific writer with numerous inspirational stories, skits and poems to her credit.

Following the program, luncheon will be served and all who attend are invited to join in the fellowship and fun. Try your luck at the challenging quizzes and win a prize!

There is no charge for the luncheon which is a gift to the women of the area from Marion Baptist Church. Advance reservations are not required.

Don’t miss this opportunity for an enjoyable spring outing. Marion Baptist Church is at 19909 40th Ave., Marion. For further information, call (231) 631-9970.
