The quarterly meeting of the Alabama Crenshaw WMU will be held at South Luverne Baptist Church on Jan. 17. The public and all churches are invited and welcome to come hear Pastor Neal Hughes speak at 7 p.m.

Pastor Neal is the pastor of Hope Community Church and the director of Project Hope for the Montgomery Baptist Association. He is also a North American Mission Board missionary.

After two decades of pasturing in the local church, God issued a revised career calling to Hughes. God led him to leave the comfort zone in the local church and create the Community of Hope, which host cell groups around the city and acts as a church &uot;with out walls&uot;. More than 4,000 people have accepted Christ through this ministry.

Come out and hear Pastor Neal as he tells of other community developments that have been added to this ministry. Currently almost 1,700 people participate in Bible Study through Community of Hope.
