The annual Women's Fellowship Conference 2007 at the Shiloh Baptist Church in Kingsport wrapped up with a soul-stirring, fact-finding and revealing sermon by Doctor Mildred Thompson. Doctor Thompson is the Executive Director of Gospel News Publications based in Collinsville, Virginia.
Doctor Thompson has been the Conference Preacher for the Shiloh Women's Fellowship Conference since it began. Quoting from the Holy Scriptures, Doctor Thompson moved the congregation at the Saturday evening service, by provoking the Followers of Jesus to remember His Teachings and follow His Word. Her moving sermon had the faithful turning many times to their Bibles to follow along, and was a return to the old-time teachings of the ministers the congregation grew up with, and many were moved to tears by her soul-touching words.
Reverend Carolyn Helm addressed the congregation at the event's Prayer Breakfast earlier Saturday morning, also with very inspiration words. A special treat at the conference was the coming-home of our own Reverend Doctor Helen Horton Styles of Burlington, North Carolina. This wonderful Minister of the Word was introduced at the Welcome Reception by her mother, Mrs. Pinkie Horton.
Although held at Shiloh, which is pastored by the Reverend Kenneth Calvert and his wife, the Reverend Linda Calvert, the Women's Conference was a representation of many churchs in the area.
