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.
