On Sunday, September 8, 2019, the Sarah Allen Missionary Society’s Annual Day was observed during the 11 AM worship service. The guest preacher was Rev. Dr. Gwendolyn Boyd, a prominent scientist, engineer, motivational speaker, and advocate for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
She serves on the ministerial staff of Ebenezer A.M.E. Church in Fort Washington, Maryland. Rev. Boyd delivered a powerful message on the topic, “Women of God, Arise - Serve God with a Purpose.” The scripture was taken from Romans 12:10-14. Rev. Boyd encouraged women of faith to hold up in the hard times, because strength is for service, not for status.
