Moreland, respectively.

Two important day sessions take place on Thursday, June 9. The Women’s Day services will begin at 9 a.m., at the West Angeles North Campus. The speaker will be Mother Barbra McCoo-Lewis, assistant general supervisor of the Church of God in Christ, Inc. At 10 a.m., Bishop Ealy will hold his Council meeting in the West Angeles Crystal Room.
