For the
Collinsville Church of Christ hosts
Spring Ladies’ Day
ville Church of Christ hosted its
third annual Spring Ladies’ Day
on Saturday, April 20. The event
was held in the church Fellow-
ship Hall, and centered around
the theme, “Connections with
God, Christian Sisters, Family
and Friends.” Sixty-two women,
representing a number of local
and area congregations, enjoyed
the ladies’ day event together.
Speakers included Betty Gra-
ham and Sue Stafford. Graham,
who is the Ladies’ Bible class

has spoken at various women’s

day functions throughout North
Texas and southern Oklahoma.
Featured speaker for the day,
Graham opened with the pre-
sentation with “Connections,” in
which she focused on the chang-
es happening in our present day
society. She gave specific exam-
ples of how those changes are
influencing everyone and some-
times break communication con-
nections with others within our
respective circles. Later in the
morning, she brought a second
delivery, “Restoring Connec-
tions.” This message centered
on the hope we have through
practicing Biblical principles
and Christian obedience.
Sue Stafford, a public school
educator for 44 years, brought
an inspirational message enti-
tled, “Bind Us Together,” drawn
from personal experiences and
interaction with students in her
classroom. Stafford, who cur-
rently lives in Frisco, is a mem-
ber of the Collinsville congrega-
tion and commutes regularly to
attend worship services.
Attendees were greeted by

table as the day began with reg-
istration, coffee and juice from 9
a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Ashley McGin-
nis offered the opening prayer,
followed by group singing led
