God has given them a desire to know the future. He does everything just right and on time, 

but people can never completely understand what he is doing. Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am delighted to pen greetings to you as we approach another year of service. I pray that we make no excuses about the new norm in our daily lives but serve the Lord with gladness like never before. Yes, it is a time of unrest but let us remember that God has the entire world in His hands.


Thank you to the officers, district/executive board members, committees at work and all women who have been a vital force in this convention. We are also thankful to our Young Woman’s Auxiliary (YWA) and Youth Department who are a blessing to us. We need one another.

Recognizing the challenges of transitioning our conventions, meetings and programs to a virtual environment and the uncertainty of how long this new normal will last, I feel confident that as women of God, we will continue about the Master’s work. For God has gifted all of us with the strength and ability to shine brightly in His world.

As we move forward in planning for upcoming events, we invite you to view our updated website:

  • World Day of Prayer Observance

  • Morris College Fall Harvest Rally

  • One Day Session

  • Annual Rainbow Tea

  • Annual Planning Meeting

  • 133rd Annual Session


Dates are located on the Event page of the WBEMCSC's website. Stay informed to the work of our convention through regular visits to the website. 


With your continued support, we can make this happen and shout the victory when next we convene for our annual session.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                            I I leave you with these thoughts, “Life is about being more like Christ, rather than having more success in life”… “Life is more accurately measured by the lives you touch than by things you acquire”. 

May God continue to bless each of you.

In love, faith, and prayer,

Hilda D. Gadsden
