FORMER SCC FIRST LADY PASSES

From the President-The Passing of Mrs. Etta Maycock Dudley

It is my sad responsibility to formally share with the constituents of the South Central Conference the passing of the former first lady of our conference, Mrs. Etta Maycock Dudley.

Mrs. Dudley was the widow of the late Elder C.E. Dudley, the fourth President of our conference. Elder Dudley served as President of our conference for 31 years-the longest tenure of any conference president in the history of our church. At the time he assumed office, our conference was small-some 4,000 members and approximately 200,000 in tithe. Under God and the visionary leadership of Elder Dudley, the infrastructure was set in place for conference to grow to over 32,000 members and nearly 19 million dollars in tithe.

South Central is today what it is because of the Lord and because Elder Dudley was who he was. Though it has been 21 years since and 3 Presidents-each of whom, he hired and trained as young Pastors-since he left office, his influence still lives on in our conference.

Through all of those years, Mrs. Dudley was faithfully by his side, traveling with him throughout the conference and the world and serving as the Administrative Assistant to the President and the Shepherdess Director for our conference.

Even as her health began to fail, she was a faithful member of the Riverside Chapel SDA Church in Nashville up until the very end. It was my understanding that she attended church on the final day of her life. She was a fixture at major conference events, such as Camp Meeting.

We thank the Lord for her long and productive life and for her service and ministry to the South Central Conference.

Looking forward to a wonderful family […]

Military Appreciation Day

On October 26, 2013, Fairfield First Seventh-day Adventist Church in Fairfield, AL. celebrated its 3rd annual Military Appreciation Day with Alabama Veterans for Christ. Military Appreciation Day is a day set aside at Fairfield First where active members of the military and military veterans are recognized for their services to the United States. Military families were recognized for their sacrifices as well.

Army Colonel (retired) Virginia Thomas noted in her opening remarks during divine worship about how African Americans have faithfully served in all branches of the military in every war from the Revolutionary War to Afghanistan and Iraq. Colonel Thomas encouraged the audience to “Be dedicated to whatever you do.” She retired from the Army June 1, 2013 after 30 years of service and is a Nurse Practitioner. Marine Corps Master Sergeant Richard Howard (retired) held a moment of silence for fallen veterans while the military tune Taps was played. He shared some of the outreach and support programs that the Alabama Veterans for Christ are currently engaged in.

Pastor Clifton McMillan Sr. preached the divine worship sermon entitled “Christ’s Battle Plan for the Veteran”. He emphasized how Christ wants his church to be disciplined as part of the Army of God. Pastor McMillan remarked, “Christ must be honored as our leader. We must first know how to be followers of Him. Faithfulness and perseverance are essential. We must be familiar with our Commander’s voice.” After the service, a fellowship dinner was served.
