The fourth annual Whole Woman Conference in Halifax County will be held Friday, April 3, and Saturday, April 4, at First Baptist Church on North Main Street in South Boston.

With the theme of “Thrive!” the April 3 event will feature a worship celebration with a “Girls’ Night Out” feel.

Thrive! will be led by Kristen Tucker, associate minister of spiritual development at Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Church of God Praise Team will lead the music. All women are invited to come and bring a friend for this time of worship and fun.

On April 4, the conference will continue with a look at true stories in Scripture, music and fellowship. Saturday’s theme of “Change My Name” is built around the theme verse from Isaiah 43:1, “The One who created and formed you says, ‘Do not be afraid, for I have Called you by Name, you are Mine!’”

Anyone stuck in the rut of daily routine or ready for a positive change of attitude will not want to miss this year’s Whole Woman Conference.

Saturday’s leader will be the Rev. Jane Lyon, the founder of the Whole Woman Conference.

The master of ceremonies for both days is Deloris Suitt, an active member of Jeters Chapel Baptist Church and executive administrator to the pastor there.

She has spoken at many churches and civic organizations throughout Virginia and North Carolina.

The April 3 Thrive! event is free. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and Thrive! officially begins at 7 p.m. and concludes by 9 p.m.

The April 4 “Change My Name” event requires a $20 registration fee. Doors open at 8 a.m., and the conference begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m.
