Martha Road Baptist Church located north of Altus will hold their 9th annual Father Daughter Banquet on Friday evening, March 28. Kevin Baker, pastor of the church said, “Each year this event has allowed father’s to bring their daughters to a semi-formal event where the girls can really dress up. The core value of the yearly event is to reinforce for the girls how they should be treated when they begin dating. The banquet allows the father’s to set the standard for how they want their daughters treated by ‘would-be future husbands’”.
The theme for this year’s event is “Footprints”. It is based on the biblical principle God’s guides our feet with the light of his Word and fathers play an important part in leaving foot prints for their children and especially daughters to follow. Our culture places a great emphasis on outward conformity that often pushes young girls to yield to what society says is right or wrong. Often this pressure causes destructive habits in the lives of teenage and young adult women. We want to remind the young ladies that God wants to guide them to make right decisions in life.
The guest speaker for the banquet is Harold Gaches, Pastor of First Baptist West in Lawton.
Tickets are now on sale for the banquet. Tickets are $30, which is a family ticket that includes the father and as many daughters he has or wants to bring to the banquet. Tickets can be purchased at the church office.
