Leaning on the Strength of Christ Ladies’ Seminar


Women of Grace is overjoyed to bring Ray Rhodes, Jr to speak with us about Susannah Spurgeon.

Susie, as she was known, was a woman that exemplified living for Christ through health problems, ministry struggles, and prolonged separation from her husband, Charles Spurgeon. Susie also never failed to give all praise and glory to God for all the many blessings in her life, ministry, and marriage.

Ray will teach us biblical lessons learned from Susie Spurgeon on joyfully enduring the trials of life.

The seminar will begin at 8:30am with breakfast and conclude at 3:30pm. Lunch is included and will be catered by Apple Spice. Please choose your lunch option on the registration form.

After lunch, Ray will host a book signing.  Several copies of Susie: The Life and Legacy of Susannah Spurgeon will be available in the bookstore.
