On November 18, 1982, five sisters from two congregations in Montgomery, Alabama met to organize a city-wide sisters’ group from various Church of Christ congregations. The initial meeting was held at the home of the late Sister Frances Robinson. During that meeting, a pledge was made to put forth efforts to gain membership and support throughout the sisterhood and brotherhood. They made a vow for the group to continue in existence while simultaneously creating a bond of love and unity among members.
