Macedonia Baptist Church of Chandler will sponsor its second annual Pearls of Wisdom Conference for young women of East Texas on Oct. 8.

This year’s workshop, "Holy Girls Rock: Purity #Unpopular," aims to challenge young women "to make a choice to stand for P.U.R.I.T.Y. (Publicly Unwavering Righteousness in Today’s Youth)" and empower them through faith amid the negative influences of the media, internet and their peers, according to a news release. 

The event is free to all middle school to college-age young women.

Registration begins at 10 a.m and the conference begins at 11 a.m. Lunch will be served. The conference will end at 5 p.m. with a style show. For more information or to sign up, go to or contact Sherri Neal at 903-780-5728 or

Macedonia Baptist Church is at 615 John Milton St. in Chandler.
