MOUNT OLIVE -- The planning session for the 2009 Wayne County gift support dinner for Mount Olive College will be held Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at First Free Will Baptist Church of Goldsboro.

During the session, Jean F. Ackiss, director of Church Support at Mount Olive College will give a presentation about the college. She will also coordinate final plans for the dinner, as well as distribute the dinner literature.

The 2009 Wayne County dinner is one of 18 being held throughout eastern North Carolina. According to Ackiss, "The dinners have provided more than $11 million in gift support since they were started in 1963. This unrestricted gift support from Free Will Baptist churches helps Mount Olive College expand its services to students, the Free Will Baptist Church, and the region."

Mount Olive College is sponsored by the Convention of Original Free Will Baptists, has locations in Mount Olive, New Bern, Wilmington, Goldsboro, Research Triangle Park and Washington. For more information, visit www.moc.edu.
