First Baptist Church of Jacksboro will host its fourth annual Gods Love Overflowing through Women (GLOW) ladies conference from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday April 5 at the church located at 200 N. Knox St.
According to Linda Bennett, GLOW leader at FBC in Jacksboro the group was created about four years ago.
“It’s one of our ladies group ministry activities we do every year and is open to all churches and women,” said Bennett.
This year’s speakers are Amber Rhoads and Shellie O’Neal. There will also be a small intermission with refreshments.
Amber Rhoads is the main speaker. She is a musician who writes and plays the music performed during conference. She was the leader for Women of Faith in Dallas November 2013.
Rhoads also sings for the Gateway Church in Grapevine. Her main topic of discussion will be the importance of depending on God throughout life.
Shellie O’Neal is a theater director at Navarro College in Corsicana. She will be performing a drama portraying Fannie Crosby’s life story and the writing of hymns.
Fannie Crosby is famous for writing older song hymns like “Blessed Assurance” more commonly known by its lyrics, “This is my story, this is my song.” She was a blind woman in the 1800s who wrote hymns that are still printed in hymnals today.
