Sav-A-Life organizers are expecting another big crowd at the 24th annual Sav-A-Life banquet on Sept. 21.

“We always expect a good crowd,” Banquet chairperson Jan White said. “Easily, we’re expecting a crowd of 400 people.”


The banquet, which will be held at the Kiwanis Community Center, will feature guest speaker Kim Hendrix, who is a former news anchor for WSFA-TV and now the director of media ministries for Frazer United Methodist Church in Montgomery.

“We’re excited about having Kim Hendrix coming to the banquet,” White said.

In her position as media ministries director, Hendrix oversees programming for WFRZ, while coordinating the many different avenues of communicating God’s word through print, social media and broadcasting.

More than 10 years ago, Hendrix developed the Shine Your Light Ministry at FUMC, a praise and worship service for women that often traveled around the state bringing special nights of praise to churches of all denominations. She also served as a lay member on the board of ordained ministry for several years; as chair of “Women of Influence” through her work with the board of magic moments; is active on the Board of Montgomery County Distinguished Young Women; and has served as a spokesperson for HBDA-Hemophilia and Bleeding Disorders of Alabama.

White said tickets, which cost $20, are still available in Andalusia at Tabby D’s Christian Book and Gift Shop, at the Opp Chamber of Commerce and Larry’s Prescriptions, and in Florala at Pharm-a-care and First Baptist Church.

Sav-A-Life is a non-profit Christian ministry helping women in crisis pregnancies and teaching life choices like abstinence to youth. It is our mission to be a positive force in our community, reaching people with the love of Christ and bringing people to value the sanctity of human life.

Attendees of the banquet will hear an update on the ministry and what volunteer opportunities are available.
