Peppi Garrett will be the featured speaker at Saturday’s Women’s Conference


“We need one another now more than ever before,” said Peppi Garrett, guest speaker for the upcoming Women’s Conference at Dorroh Lake Baptist Assembly.

Make plans to join Garrett and ladies across the county as they meet together for a time of fellowship. The Women’s Conference is set for 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16 at Dorroh Lake Baptist Assembly in Bellefontaine. Tickets are $15 and includes lunch. Please contact Pepper at (662) 418-8373.

Sponsored by the Webster Baptist Association, the Women’s Conference will feature Peppi Garrett, a Christian Comedian from Mobile, Ala.

“She loves bringing the temporary joy of laughter, to introduce the eternal joy of knowing Jesus,” said Debbie Pepper, one of the organizers of this year’s event. “I love her humor and her compassion for people. Her comedy show and testimony goal is to introduce someone to the eternal joy of knowing Jesus.”

Garret said this conference will be an opportunity for attendees to come together with their sisters in Christ, “to love Him more intimately, serve Him more passionately, worship Him more reverently, praise Him more joyfully and laugh more hysterically.” Continue reading

At a Fall Festival at Bellefontaine UMC many years ago, me and Pepper dressed up as black-eyed peas. We thought we were funny, but not everyone caught on! HA!

 

For many, Halloween holds a lot of fun memories.

Whether it was fishing for prizes at the Halloween Carnival at Eupora Elementary School or getting to wear the Superman costume you have wanted each year, but finally found, Halloween was a time of innocent fun and moments that will never be forgotten.

Christie Bailey Colvin of Tomnolan said her favorite Halloween years were those we spent on the Navy base.

“There were kids for hours,” Colvin said. “I remember buying five paper grocery bags of candy and running out! We all spent the evening outside, enjoying the neighbors.” Continue reading
