Charlotte Braxton greets Elaine Mines as she enters the “Girls Nite Out” held at Second Mt. Zion Baptist Church.

In the upstairs portion of Second Mt. Zion Baptist Church, the colors of pink, white and black filled the room.

Welcoming women into the room was a handwritten sign in pink chalk that read, “Welcome to Girls Nite [sic] Out.”

The Women’s Ministry of Second Mt. Zion Baptist Church hosted the event that called for sisterhood among the women in the church and community, as well as self-reflection on Friday, Feb. 24 at 7:00 p.m.

“This is the mission [of the women’s ministry], to edify and build up in our church and community,” Sandra Morris, president of the ministry, said.

Each woman was welcomed with a gift bag and given the instruction to not open it until instructed to do so. The night ushered in a spirit of fun and ministry.

Portia Smith brought in a spirit of worship through song, followed by the introduction of the night’s speaker by Apostle Sheila Simon of Newport News.

The guest speaker was Caroline County native Angela Rollins-Williams, who opened with prayer and instructed all the women to open the bags they were given when they first came in.
