WEIRTON - The Church Women United will host a World Community Day service, "Abiding in Community," at 11 a.m. Friday at the First Baptist Church located at Homewood Avenue and Adams Street.
The First Baptist and St. Paul Roman Catholic Church congregations are co-hosts for the service. JoAnn Morrison is the coordinator, and the third-year delegates will participate in the ceremony. Isobel Bell will conduct the installation of the 2013 Church Women United officers.
Lunch will follow the service in the fellowship hall.
Through out the year, the church women have considered different aspects of the year's theme, "Sounds and Sights of Harmony," including listening to one another as part of the May Friendship Day and celebrating their unity at the Human Rights Celebration.
"Today, we ask you to envision with us the sights and sounds of harmony as we abide, together, in community," said Isobel Bell. "Let us ask God to give us hearts like children and teach us all how to abide in community together."
Church Women United was founded in as an ecumenical movement involving Protestant, Roam Catholic, Orthodox and other Christian women from the United States and Puerto Rico.
Olivia Carter is the local unit president.
The public is invited to attend the event.
