Margaret Bailey is a group leader for the ladies benevolence committee at Marble City Baptist Church, Sylacauga. The committee serves food to church or community members who have experienced a death in their family or some other form of grief.

She taught Sunday School for 15 years and is described by fellow church members as an encourager and a great prayer warrior. “When I pray, I get down to business,” she said.
Q: When did you come to know the Lord?
A: I was 13 years old. When I went to the altar, I remember feeling my aunt place her hand on my shoulder and I heard her praying for me, and that had a great impact on my life.
Q: What led you to be so involved in church?
A: The love of the Lord. I’ve always wanted to be able to encourage others, especially those people who are dealing with some of the same experiences that I have been through.
Q: How have family or church members supported you?
A: They have prayed for me. And they were here for me when my husband died.
Q: How do you see yourself involved in church in the future?
A: I’ll keep praying for as long as I have breath. And I want to know God more and more, so I continue to study the Word. I want to continue as long as I can see and hear.
Q: How do you plan to continue ministering in the future?
A: I’ll just continue to encourage people and look for ways to help people.
