by: Rep. Bowers, Rhetta

Austin, TEXAS – State Representative Rhetta Andrews Bowers (113) will be the keynote speaker at the Church of the Disciple's Women's Weekend in DeSoto, Texas. The theme for this year's Women's Weekend is "Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence".

“I am incredibly honored that the Church of the Disciple would choose me to deliver the keynote speech at their Women's Weekend Brunch. This past year has truly been a year of visionary women and I look forward to celebrating all of our accomplishments this weekend with the congregation as well as the greater DeSoto Community”

Over the course of the weekend, the Church of the Disciple will be honoring the legacy of their Senior Pastor, Dr. Ouida Lee, as she celebrates her upcoming birthday and retirement after 50 years of Ministry. The special guest for the Women's Weekend Sunday service is Neisha Strambler-Butler from Representative Bowers' home church, the First Lady of St. Paul United Methodist Church of Dallas.

“For 70 years, Dr. Ouida Lee has lived a model life. She has been a beacon of grace and hope for every community she has served over the course of her 50 years of Ministry and I wish her all the best in her well-deserved retirement. While she may not be giving the Sunday service this week, I know that if there is anyone who can fill in for Dr. Lee, it is Neisha Strambler-Butler. Speaking from my own personal experience, I know that her service this weekend will be one that is remembered by all who attend."

The brunch will be held at Thorntree Country Club on Saturday, March 23rd at 10:00 a.m. Tickets can be purchased by searching "Church of the Disciple's Women's Weekend Brunch" on Ticket purchases include a generous breakfast and a gift.
