In September of 1985, Sister Mattie Blackstone sat trying to think of an
outreach program designed to bring sisters in the Church of Christ closer
together throughout the United States. She came up with a global vision with
the idea of starting a dynamic lectureship series called “The Ladies Lecture
Series.” Sister Blackstone presented the idea to the members of the Church of
Christ in Spring Lake, North Carolina. The sisters liked the idea and the
brethren approved it.
The Lectures would be a moveable Christian Fellowship and Inspirational Gathering for women annually. Each Lecture Series would be conducted in a different state hosted by one of the local congregations. The first meeting was held in Atlanta, Georgia in 1986 with the theme being, “Christian Women: Facing Difficult Matters of the twentieth Century.” This theme was drawn from and centered on the many problems facing Christian Women. Since then, we are now called “The Church of Christ Ladies Lectureship-Retreat.” We have been invited to many cities in the United States and to the island of Bermuda.
We aspire to translate our dreams for Christian Women Fellowship into a rich reality and pass it on to those who will succeed us. Armed with the discipline and knowledge obtained from the “Ladies’ Lecture Series,” we trust that they will succeed. We sincerely hope you will gain more inspiration and knowledge from these programs each year and that the information received from the discussions and activities of each year’s theme proves to inspire and edify you in your search toward heaven.
