Second CC in Fulton, was packed on Sunday afternoon, August 28th for their annual Women's Day celebration service. Disciples from Fifth Street CC in Columbia were honored guests along with many in the community. Rev. Dr. Paul Koch, Regional Minister Team member, was graciously welcomed to the congregation by Pastor Cedric Harris in a public affirmation of regional support for the vital work carried out in our African-American Convocation churches.
The Second CC women's choir, shown here, sang rousing inspirational anthems as did the Fifth Street women's choir and special artists to affirm the gathering's theme, "Miracles are Happening Here." An inspiring message was delivered by Pastor Ciara Hardin of Jefferson City who shared her courageous battle with cancer as a young mother and then almost succumbing to a chemotherapy overdose. (She is now healthy and cancer free!) She delicately tied this together Proverbs 31 along with Solomon and the story of David & Bathsheba in her message, "A Woman's Worth."
