Our Church Mother

Our Church Mother

Lucretia Boyd Hutcherson is the wife of the late Deacon Thomas Hutcherson, Jr. She was born and raised in Palatka, Florida, where she graduated from Central Academy High School. During this time she was a faithful member of Greater Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, where she was baptized in Jesus' name. Mother Hutcherson was a devoted wife and loving mother to their four children, ten grandchildren, and four great-grandkids. She retired from Hampton Inn-Daniel Island, SC, and Berkeley County, School District, SC.

Mother Hutcherson plays a vital role as a member of the Emanuel Baptist Church family, serving as the Church Mother. She has also served as a member of the RB Gillins Choir, Usher Ministry, Missionary Ministry, and past president of the Deaconess Ministry. Mother Hutcherson's faith walk is grounded in Psalms 23:1-6,

 "1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters 

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff comfort me

 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence

of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup

runneth over

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow

me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of

the Lord forever."

Mother Hutcherson is glad to be used by God to honor her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who is the head of her life, and gives recognition to Pastor John T. and Lady Wanda Miller and the Emmanuel Baptist Church family for the mutual love that is shared. And as she always states, "Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, oh Lord my strength and my redeemer."
