SIMI VALLEY AND SCC HOST 6TH ANNUAL WOMEN’S DAY
A group of committed Christian women came together from across their community last Sabbath to spend a day together focusing on worship, praise, and prayer. For the last six years, the Simi Valley Adventist Church has sponsored an annual Women’s Day event. This year, in partnership with the Southern California Conference Prayer Ministries Dept. and the Pacific Union, women from different faiths and walks of life gathered at the West Building of the Union’s office for a day to enjoy fellowship and share their faith.
Janet Lui, the main speaker and SCC prayer ministry coordinator, shared a message titled, “Prayer is the Key!” Lui, together with Jan White, pastor of nurture and discipleship at the Simi Valley church, Becky Stroub, and a team of volunteers worked hard to make the day special. From the floral arrangements, vegetarian cuisine, and spirit-filled speakers, to the praise music and presentations, this ministry event has become a wonderful respite for women in the Pacific Southwest.
“Prayer is the opening of the heart to God as to a friend….Prayer does not bring God down to us, but brings us up to Him.” -Ellen G. White, Steps to Christ
Our prayer for All God’s People—particularly for the sisters in communities and churches across the Pacific Southwest—is that through the ministry of women like these, your soul will be nourished, and that you will know Jesus as your personal Savior and Friend.
