Women's Ministry at Anchorage Samoan Church
Feb. 22 was designated Women's Ministry Day in the Anchorage (Alaska) Samoan Church.
The Sabbath service began with inspiring songs and was followed by welcomes and announcements. The women's choir presented special music. Guest speaker Colleen Crawford, wife of the Alaska Conference president, presented the message about five women heroes of prayer and faith in the Bible: Esther, Hannah, Mary, Martha and Dorcas. Each character was illustrated with a Samoan girl, dressed in costume, acting the part of the Bible character. The service concluded with a moving song of dedication for all the women in the congregation.
The color and pageantry were inspiring and well received by those attending.
