God Bless the Sisterhood


I have been trying to write this letter for a few weeks now. There are things that kept me busy that are different than from when I started as president. You will recall that a few years ago I had a bone marrow transplant which made me painfully aware of germs as I have to take more than average care. Now with COVID I have attempted to have meetings using the same platform we have used for Higher Ground Fellowship Hour and Morning Worship. In addition to my job,  caring for my mother has become far more involved. Thus after much prayer I have decided it is best if I resign from the office of president of the Sisterhood Ministry.

I would like to continue this blog and the operation of our Remind App group as a form of communication in addition to those who volunteer to make phone calls. I would also like to have another delivery made to the shelter for homeless families at the Bishop Ott Center as another minister has contacted me with contributions for this God-Led ministry.

Thanks for the support over the years and may God bless each of you is my prayer.

Mother's Day, Grads and Retirees

 For the Mother's Day of Prayer, there were not enough participant/ volunteers so we will combine the celebrations with the grads and retirees. We decided at the meeting to have it on 5/15 but if we need to push it back, let me know what the majority of you thinks by Monday 5/10/21. 

BTW, I still have gifts for last year's grads so if you know someone who did not come to pick theirs up last month have them contact me.

I will repeat the slide show of the grads/retirees, so I am requesting 3 photos of each with these questions answered:

1. From what school/college is the student graduating? (or) From what company is the retiree retiring?

2. What college or job is the grad attending? In what field will he/she matriculate? What are the retirees immediate plans?

I would appreciate a volunteer for gathering this information with the list of grads and retirees.


If you are having trouble getting messages via Remind, there are some that I get a notice about from the app that says "(This person) is only reachable by email. To receive messages by text or app, they'll need to update their notification preferences."  I usually send the message again via email and text and I post the link to this blog on Facebook on our Mount Pilgrim Family group. I'd still appreciate it if someone who prefers to call would volunteer to call those who prefer to receive them.


If you know of a sister who needs prayer, has a praise report or has passed away please feel free to let us know. Personally, with my schedule, I'm doing better with texts and phone calls. The bottom line is: let the rest of us know rather than just discuss it among those you see in person while discussing only with those what needs to be done.


Message from Sister Juanolita Johnson:

Visitation begins Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at 9:00 am until religious service at 11:00 am at Mount Pilgrim Baptist Church; 9700 Scenic Hwy.; Baton Rouge, LA. Interment Louisiana National Cemetery, Zachary, LA.

Fw: Mid-Week Talks

Mid-Week Talks

Clover Field
I miscalculated. We are to do the mid-week talks for the month of April. I need to get volunteers for 7-10-minute talks to Sister LaFleur tomorrow. The Wednesdays in April are 4/7, 4/14, 4/21, and 4/28. I will start by doing 4/7.
If you cannot think of subject matter, think of something that's dear to your heart. I can also help, if you like. 
Please respond to this email or send me a text to 301-9582, ASAP.
Thank you!
