Pastors / Elders / Ministers / Deacons Wives and Widows Department - "THE ELECT LADIES"

Chair:  Superintendent's Wife, Mother Gwendolyn Lawson Townsend.

Pastor's wives are called "First Ladies" or "Elect Ladies" but within the church membership are often Elders, Ministers and Deacons to assist the Pastor in the work of the ministry.    Their wives are an intrical part of ministry.  Members look to the pastor's, elder's, minister's and deacon's wives as examples of godly women who uphold the standards of holiness within the Church of God in Christ and in the Old Landmark District we honor these serving "Elect Ladies" - leaders wives!  A spirit-led leaders wife with wisdom and strength will help to build an effective ministry in the local church as well as support the district and its 1st Lady and Superintendent.  

Our Department is not in name only but is a serving Department, carrying out at least one service ministry annually.  

  • In 2014-2016 we collected hats, gloves, blankets, etc. for a Mission in Downtown Seattle.  Along with distributing the items in the Winter, this Department completely reorganized and updated their Clothing Room. 

  • In 2016-2018 we supported 4 designated families for the year for back-to-school, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  

  • In 2018-2020 we are carrying out a project called FAITH & HOPE Live Here to encourage prayer, witnessing, and District Church growth of guests and new members.

  • Spring 2020 our Department held it's first Annual Elect Ladies Fellowship Tea.  Watch for our exciting activities in the months and years to come!
