Single Believers Ministries will present three power-packed nights of conference/revival featuring Evangelist Ella Coaster from Arlington at 7:30 p.m. March 21-23 at Greater Renfro Memorial Church of God in Christ, 700 E. Park Ave., where Wiliam Lewis is pastor and Marylyn Lewis is first lady. Words of exhortation will be given by Evangelist Mattie Jones. You are invited to come and worship the Lord.

The power of the Lord illuminates through Coaster, a highly-anointed woman of God. She accepted her call of God into full-time ministry in October 1995. Since that time she has ministered throughout the continental United States expounding the word led by the Holy Ghost.

Many souls have come to Christ; numerous people have been healed and delivered. Ella Coaster Ministries spreads the good news, salvation and a message of faith. One of the favorite quotes is “God Can.” Coaster was saved in February 1965 at Greater New Hope COGIC, under the ministry of her father. She received her baptism of the Holy Ghost in March 1965.

Coaster is a faithful member of Rolling Hill COGIC, where Elder Robert L. Jordan is pastor. She is the mother of one son, Willie Coaster Jr. Coaster is a former entrepreneur and now a spiritual evangelist who is not afraid to tell the world about Jesus.



Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, where the Rev. R.C. Emanuel is pastor, will sponsor its second banquet honoring the church’s 135th anniversary on April 7 at The Cook Center, located on the Navarro College campus. Guest speaker will be the Rev. E.C. Wilson, pastor of New Hope Baptist Church in Terrell. The church’s gospel choir will also be guests. Donations will be $20. Tickets are available from any Bethel AME Church member.



Greater Renfro Memorial Church of God in Christ, 700 E. Park Ave., will present a counseling service from 10 a.m. to noon each Wednesday for marriage, divorce, parents, children and drugs. Spirit-filled counselors will be present each week. For more information, call (903) 874-7273 or mail to P.O. Box 77, Corsicana, TX 75151. Pastor is Assistant Supt. William Lewis Jr. and first lady is Marylyn Lewis.
