Acts Missionary Baptist Church will hold its third annual Women in Purple & Pearls Luncheon from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 12, at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 1356 Amelia Street, Orangeburg.
This event will be for women of all ages, denominations, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Stepping outside of the traditional setting of church into a different venue for women to worship together in unison.
Acts Missionary Baptist Church of Santee celebrated their eighth church anniversary this past January and hopes to “spread the Gospel in the hedges and highways, preaching whether they want to hear you or they don’t want to hear you. We must tell the people about Jesus Christ,” said Pastor Isaac Greene, founder and lead pastor.
“By the church growing and being a change agent in the community, the Purple & Pearls Luncheon is one way to reach the women from all walks of life, near and from, in the surrounding churches and communities in an effort to bring them together for worship. Women carry the weight in the today’s church. Our roles have interchanged over the years and we have to embrace the change through appreciation and showing gratitude for those who’ve paved the way,” Greene said.

Over the past two years, the event has been an intimate gathering of women who share their belief in Jesus Christ as their Savior, gathering to celebrate womanhood. The event includes a variety of activities to keep the women engaged, entertained and spiritually fed, all the while creating an open environment to share concerns that could be nurtured in the space of more mature women.
The goal of the luncheon is to annually reach and embrace the role of women while the church is improving, evangelizing, ministering, and reaching people like never before, so this event is an attempt to recognizing these “pearls,” which are the women. Secondly, it is an appreciation for women represented by the color purple. Every woman carries a special honor and this luncheon polishes their place in church and the community.
This year’s keynote speaker will be Lady Ronda Risher Simmons, first lady of Shady Oak Baptist Church, Greenville. Simmons has decades of experience in education and will be enlightening women on spiritual growth and being a spiritual woman.
