IMG_4687The Fifth Annual Ladies on the Lawn drew 102 attendees to the Specialty Park Event Center on July 26. The theme was “Rain On Me, Let Your Holy Spirit Fall On Me.” 

Crystal Coston Hoover is the founder and president of the edifying event, which drew attendees of all ages and walks of life.  The evening began with Gail Couthen and the New Gospel Light Choir singing “Come Let’s Stroll Down Blessings Boulevard.” Lawanda Lash danced to the sounds of “Rain” by Tamela Mann. Elder Deloris Holman Chiles prayed before attendees sat down for an elegant dinner.

After dinner, the women heard encouraging words from Evangelist Whitnei D. Holman Johnson and Evangelist Ernestine McGriff. In her message, “Let it Rain,” she encouraged the women to stand strong in their faith and receive their blessings.

The night ended with spiritual advisor Glenda D. Stover, who had the women form a circle, hold up signs and sing and clap to the tune “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.
