MOULTRIE — Friendship Missionary Baptist Church will be holding its Youth Day celebration at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 14. The theme for the celebration is “Youth, it all comes back to Jesus,” and is a continuation from the church’s Vacation Bible School “The Boomerang Express.”

The speaker will be Ashley LaEura Brown. She is the 20-year-old daughter of Julius and Lovette Brown of Omega, and she currently attends Abraham Baldwin Agriculture College in Tifton.

During Brown’s first year at ABAC, she became a residential assistant, served as ambassador for the college and competed for the title of Miss ABAC. Three months later, she captured the title Miss ABAC and represented the college through 2008 during its 100th year anniversary.

Brown has competed in many local pageants, winning titles since the age of 5, including Little Miss Care House, Little Miss Pearl, Miss Blue Revue, Miss Afro and Miss Black South Georgia. In 2008, she won an $11,000 educational scholarship.

As Brown finalizes her studies at ABAC in Tifton, she plans to continue her studies in the areas of pre-pharmacy and biology. She is presently working at CVS in Tifton as a pharmacy technician.

Music for the celebration will be rendered by the Mother Easter Baptist Church Youth Choir and Miss Afro 2009 will perform a praise dance. The New Jerusalem Baptist Church Vessels of Praise will also perform. The church invites all area church youth groups.

Church pastor is the Rev. Alfred Jones.
