Disciples Women’s Ministries is composed of members, friends, and guests of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We meet monthly from September through June.
The Daytime Group meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 1:00 p.m. at the homes of various members. The Evening Group meets at members’ homes on the first Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm. Please check the Church calendar for each month’s meeting location. Each meeting consists of study, worship, and fellowship. We invite all women to attend either or both group meetings. We also have a monthly service project for local, regional, or international sources. Of course, everyone is welcome to participate in these projects whether they attend the meetings or not.
DWM 2017-2018 Study:
The theme for this year is Freedom: Promise and Struggle in the Bible. One author writes, “At the heart of each story there is struggle, defiance, and cost–and a hope for promise and freedom. We must rise to meet the challenges of life, determined to persevere. The important piece of this Bible study is solidly knowing God is with us during those times. “Women of the New Testament: Finding their Voice” from Just Women, a publication published and written by Disciple women.
Please join us in our journey as we explore this study prepared for us by CCK Women’s Ministries Cabinet. You will be glad you did!
