WMU teen event ‘speaks to the heart’ of girls

Fixing their minds on biblical truth — that was the challenge Chelsea Kellum gave to more than 400 girls in grades 7–12 during the recent Complete event, held March 2–3 at Eastern Hills Baptist Church, Montgomery.

Candace McIntosh, executive director of Alabama Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU), said she was “so grateful that God has given us the platform of Complete to provide teen girls a place to hear from godly women.”

Complete “is a unique event that speaks to the heart of a teenage girl,” she said. “How refreshing it was to hear Chelsea Kellum challenge the girls to seek biblical truth.”

The two-day event focused on Philippians 4:8 — “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

Madeline Caver led worship for Complete, and the weekend “wove the theme of truth” throughout Bible studies, missionary testimonies and breakout sessions, said Trish Jackson, missions lifestyle strategist for Alabama WMU.

“We had missions and ministry breakouts in addition to life breakouts,” Jackson said. “Our Friday night activity encouraged Scripture memory through Bible journaling.” (Grace Thornton)
