DW Project Late July & Early August 2018
***Big Yellow School Bus***
August has always been vacation month for our faithful supporters-dedicated followers of God who show their love by their generous response to our DW projects through the year.
But! I missed the bus in July, the big, yellow school bus! SHAME ON ME!!! School starts August 16th. We still have some time to show we want to provide for needy children-struggling families-if we hurry. But why don’t we make this easy…If you would be willing to give a monetary gift, that would be great. Can we do this by August 12th? Time is short. I hear the school bells ringing.
Forgive me for falling down on the job.
Thank you, Almighty God, for our loving church family who makes this project worth doing.
Mark you envelopes and checks “DW”-memo “school”.
See you in September.-Disciples Women Read the bulletin here.
The Project for July 2018 Disciples Women Budget
It has been three years since we have put out a plea for help. As you all know – money goes out faster than it comes in (much like home). Our “pockets” are getting empty but the expenses keep coming. We could borrow from our funeral fund but that would only create another dilemma.
We want to continue what we do in DW, but we cannot without money. We are a very worthwhile group, but without your prayers and monetary gifts, we cannot do all we do.
We continue to thank you for the wonderful response to our projects this year and in the past. We could not have done it without you. God bless each and every one of you. Make any check to DW with “Budget Project” in the memo and we thank you sincerely. Read the bulletin here.
Disciples Women June 2018 Project
Would YOU like to help save a life today? Give sight in one day to a child or adult with cataracts? Remove a disfiguring facial tumor obstructing an airway or a person’s ability to eat causing them to starve? Repair legs that are backward or so bowed they cannot walk? Will you? The list is endless.
Remember Mercy Ships, sailing port to port, bringing help and hope to many who’ve never seen a doctor because they were too poor? The afflicted walk for days covering hundreds of miles, sell everything they own-for their once in a lifetime chance to be treated.
Some so disfigured have spent their lives hiding because they were shunned-never able to marry, work or attend school because people were afraid of them.
Mercy Ships have a volunteer crew of about 450 from 50 countries who pay to work on this ship for 2 weeks to 2 years-giving hope, love, and mercy.
We are all God’s children. He trusts us to take care of those in desperate need-strangers we’ll never meet but who are grateful for what you are doing for them. We are all blessed by living in America. It is our job to care of our brothers and sisters in other countries too.
Please reread an earlier write-up and see pictures in the Narthex. Tell me your heart doesn’t ache. Please, please be generous. We thank you and they do too. We invite our church family to join us in saving lives. Mark envelopes and checks to Disciples Women for Mercy Ships. Bless you all. Read this week's bulletin here.
We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a community of about 850,000 Christians in 3,800 congregations in the United States and Canada.
Two groups of frontier Christians came together in 1832 to form the foundation of today's Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
They shared the view that people should not be excluded from fellowship in the church because they didn't adhere to a particular human-made creed.
They used to say there is "no creed but Christ." Today's Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) still thinks that way.
We study the Bible to deepen our connection to God through Jesus Christ, and to discover what God wants us to do.
