Marks Trinity UMC schedules special event for young women


Participation by actress Cassi Davis, a Holly Springs native, will be one of the highlights of G.A.B.S. at Marks Trinity United Methodist Church.

The event, scheduled for 9:30 a.m. July 11, is designed to reach today’s young generation and is sponsored by the church’s United Methodist Women. The name stands for: Girls About to Become Successful.

The church is located at 1927 Charlie Pride Highway.

This event is designed for girls ages 10-25 years of age. The one-day summit will incorporate an array of events that will bring together youth from all over the surrounding counties, including a consecration rededication of commitment to Christ service with Davis, who portrays Ella on the Tyler Perry Show.

Planned activities include one-on-one age group break-out sessions for girls, teens, youth and young women; various panel discussions; an open mic rap session for all attendees hosted by TaShunda Montgomery-Vaughn; door prizes, free food and fun.

Although the event is free, registration is required.
