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.
Disciples Women - May 2018 Project
Summer is just around the corner and Camp Tawakoni is awaiting the arrival of many young people.
Let’s support our young people seeking Christian activities. At Camp Tawakoni they develop leadership qualities and have many opportunities to enjoy fellowship and fun.
We ask the congregation’s help in providing supplies for Camp Tawakoni. No money, only supplies please. Items the camp could use include: paper towels, toilet tissue, napkins, liquid dish and hand soap, laundry detergent, toilet cleaner, 39 gallon or drum size trash bags, tall kitchen trash bags, gallon size Ziploc bags, Crockpot liners, paper plates, and white tea towels.
We are grateful to each and every one of you for your support, caring, and love. Place your items in the box in the Narthex. Read the bulletin here.

Psalm 118:19-24 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
19 Open to me the gates of righteousness;
I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to [a]the Lord.
20 This is the gate of the Lord;
The righteous will enter through it.
21 I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me,
And You have become my salvation.
22 The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief corner stone.
23 This is [b]the Lord’s doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
24 This is the day which the Lord has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
