Martha Road Baptist Church located north of Altus will hold their 8th annual Father Daughter Banquet Friday evening, April 5 at 6:30 p.m. Kevin Baker, pastor of the church said, “Each year this event has allowed father’s to bring their daughters to a semi-formal event where the girls can really dress up. The core value of the yearly event is to reinforce for the girls how they should be treated when they begin dating. The banquet allows the father’s to set the standard for how they want their daughters treated by ‘would-be future husbands’”.
The theme for this year’s event is “Brave”. It is based on the biblical principle from Joshua 1:9 that says we are to be strong and courageous. Our culture places a great emphasis on outward conformity. This often pushes young girls to yield to what society says is right or wrong. Often this pressure causes destructive habits in the lives of teenage and young adult women. We want to remind the young ladies to be Brave and trust God in all things.
The guest speaker for the banquet is Kelly King, Kelly is the director of Women’s Ministries for the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma.
Tickets are now on sale for the banquet. Tickets are $30, which is a family ticket that includes the father and as many daughters he has or wants to bring to the banquet.
