Raglin to be speaker at MLK breakfast
Evangelist Rhoda Raglin will be the speaker for this year's Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration and breakfast that will take place on Monday, Jan. 16, at the First Christian Church, 160 Lexington Street, Versailles. Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. Raglin is the pastor of Simpson Chapel United Methodist Church in Versailles, where she just celebrated her second year in June. She is married to the Rev. Robert G Raglin. They have five children and eight grandchildren and live in Georgetown. During her time in Versailles, the church's Tuesday night Bible study has grown. The church recently created a time of prayer on Wednesday and Sunday mornings, "Intentional Prayer Time," starting at 9 a.m. Raglin believes in fellowshipping and networking with others. She has taught and preached in many places and churches throughout Kentucky because of those connections. She is part of the Lexington Emmaus Community and has served as a clergy speaker in recent walks. She is sought out for women's conferences, revivals and luncheons. Her study of "The Bag Lady" has been shared several times within the A.M.E women's ministry and church services. The Raglins minister together as a preaching and teaching team. They currently teach Bible study together at St. John's United Methodist Church in Shelbyville, where the Rev. Robert is the newly appointed pastor.
