PRAYER AND BIBLE BAND
No Auxiliary of the Women’s Department has done more in keeping the church together than the Prayer and Bible Band. It is the oldest auxiliary of the department and one of the favorites of our Late Mother Lizzie Robinson.
THE PURPOSE: The purpose of the Prayer and Bible Band is to train members to know their Bibles that they may become acquainted with the Word of God and help to lead others to right and righteousness. The principal objective is that Christ be in the hearts of God’s creation, His people and that our testimonies and attitudes will always be Christ honoring.
THE LEADERS RESPONSIBILITY: 1. You are responsible to see that every meeting begins on time. Also that you are there before other members arrive. 2. You are responsible to see that every meeting is well planned and service that will be interesting to those who will attend. 3. You are responsible for discipline of your group. 4. You are responsible for living a consecrated life and inspire others to follow in the steps of Jesus.
