Greater St. Mary’s Missionary Baptist Church, 416 Belmont, kicked off its Christian fashion show, Spring into Fashion, with the Rev. Robert W. Lyons Sr. commenting on the event.

“People of God know how to look good while dressing modestly,” Lyons said.

Everyone from deacons to children strutted down the runway modeling fashionable modest wear Saturday, March 2, at the church.

Models also donned business, sports, evening wear and church garments.

As an added surprise, the last garments displayed were wedding attire that induced applause from the audience.

Renee Love, president of Greater St. Mary’s choir, said the event was a part of its yearly fundraiser. It also served as a time for members to relax and “have fun,” she asserted.

In addition to the fashion show, professional comedian Darrell Banks entertained the audience with his blend of comedy.

“I used to go to church, but they passed the plate too much. So I told that pastor, just give me the plate and let me take it to God this time,” Banks joked, which brought about laughter from his audience.

Closing out the program was the Greater St. Mary’s Creative Arts Mime Ministries, whose presentation caused the audience to give them a standing ovation.

Afterwards, a banquet was held for all those in attendance.
