It is a busy season for Sisters Keeping the Covenant, infused with lots of fellowship, fun and fire of the Holy Ghost—and of course, much prayer, instruction in God’s Word and spiritual growth. Women’s General Assembly 2009 “AND SHE SHALL RECEIVE POWER” drew an audience of nearly 250 women and teen girls from throughout Central Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, and as far as Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland. The Spirit of God moved at First United Methodist Church, 200 West High Street in Lexington, KY on Friday, June 26 and Saturday, June 27, 2009 in praise dance, praise stepping, gospel jazz, and certainly in the dynamic and anointed teaching and preaching.
Sisters Keeping the Covenant was also blessed by the success of Women Clergy Cross Cultural Training and Empowerment Assembly which brought women clergy of varying races, cultures and denominations together for a power packed experience on Friday, June 12, 2009. This learning, sharing and growing experience especially for women clergy was held at the Lexington Downtown Hilton Hotel and in addition to lectures for theological and ministry preparation, featured a live radio broadcast reaching an audience of 32,000 and addressing the topic, “Maximizing the Roles of Women Clergy Today.”
Sensitive to the high statistics of HIV/AIDS especially among African American women and the need for increased awareness and testing, SKTC sponsored “Broken, But I’m Healed” which was a witness to the community of God’s power to heal and to inspire hope in the midst of all tribulations. Prayers were offered by ministers in the community, and there was ministry in mime, song, and instrumentation. The Kentucky Department for Public Health shared on HIV/AIDS Awareness and Prevention. We were blessed by the anointed and gifted Trinity Mime Ministry of Lexington as a spirit of liberty and healing prevailed. A Gospel Jazz reception followed.
Sisters Keeping the Covenant continues to set the standard for ministry for women, connecting women of varied denominations and races, as we recently returned from Toronto Canada, having participated in the Fourth Episcopal District of the AME Church’s Women’s International Prayer Convocation on September 16-20. 2009. We were blessed to provide free scholarships as well as paid hotel expenses for 30 women clergy through a grant obtained from the Lily Foundation through Asbury Theological Seminary in Lexington, KY. This experience in Toronto concluded a three phase experience for the women clergy that included their attendance at the Women Clergy Cross Cultural Training and Empowerment Assembly and their attendance at WGA 2009.
Sisters Keeping the Covenant is excited about the upcoming Women’s Old Fashioned Camp Meeting 2010 “And the Women Of God Said, AMEN that will be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Dover, DE on Friday, April 9 and Saturday, April 10, 2010. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the mission work of the 13th Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church where Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie is the Presiding Prelate.
And the women of God said, AMEN!!!!!
