Pratt area women are invited to join a congregation a quarter-million strong to hear a nationally recognized Bible teacher, preacher and author. The Pratt First United Methodist Church has covenanted with Living Proof Ministries to bring a simulcast featuring Beth Moore to the local church.

Women of all ages and denominations are invited to the event from 8:30 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14 at the church located at 100 N. Jackson. The $8 ticket includes lunch prepared by the Pratt UMW, as well as snacks and breaks throughout the day. To register, call Diane House at 620-388-0792 or go to Questions or requests for special accommodations can also be addressed to House.

Dove award winning musical artist Travis Cottrell, is slated to lead worship for the event. In addition, the praise and worship band from First Assembly of God will lead singing and perform, and Pratt Christian Book and Music will be there with books and other items for sale. There will also be plenty of time for fellowship

Moore is a speaker and author of books and Bible studies such as "Breaking Free," "Praying God's Word" and "Get Out of That Pit." She is also the founder of living Proof Ministries and speaks to thousands of women each year. Her words are for women of all ages, races and denominations. She is a woman of purpose, preparation, prayer and passion. Her mission is to lead women into a richer, more fulfilling relationship with God, by teaching them how the Bible applies to them.

Beth is unique, according to Mary Brehm, one of the organizers. She doesn't get a topic and then plan a conference and tell everyone to come. Instead, she plans the conference, and prays that God will lay a topic on her heart. She is noted as a dynamic storyteller and passionate teacher, according to promotional material.

The simulcast originates from West Virginia, so that will set the schedule for the day, Brehm said, explaining that lunch is planned to begin about 10:30 a.m.
