Sandra J. Evers-Manly will be honored at the Women’s Day Service on Sunday, March 15, at 11 a.m., at Congregational Church of Christian Fellowship Los Angeles (CCCF), 2085 S. Hobart Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Women’s Day is sponsors by CCCF’s Sisters in Christ Fellowship (SINC). The theme is “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made” based on Psalm 139:14. The Century City Delta Sigma Theta Alumnae Chapter will also participate.

According to Pastor James and First Lady Denise McKnight, the service is part of the church’s observance of International Women’s Month from a Christian perspective, which celebrates the gifts and talents and the impact of women within the church and throughout the community.
