The Disciples Women Fellowship
The next meeting will be Thursday, January 11 at 6:30 p.m. at the church. Please check with Rev. Julia Jordan Gillett for meeting location. We will have a work time on rocks and mats.
We have a new group that meets once a month in the evening and is open to all women, young and old. We enjoy Bible Study, Fellowship, Food, and participating in Mission projects. This month we will be focusing on Kindness for our Mission project. "Peace, love, and understanding can only be achieved when we seek to create for the common good." There will be two places in our church where you can find our Kindness Rocks. One will be in the front by the Church Office and the other will be in the Sanctuary Narthex.
Having a bad day... There is a rock for you! Know someone that could use a positive word? Give him/her a Kindness Rock!
You just never know what a little bit of kindness might do for someone!!!!
Just look for: Take one Share one Leave one
One message at just the right time can change your entire day!

A Message from Ron
Thereís nothing that stirs my heart and mind like singing the great hymns of the church! The Music Department is now preparing timeless and new music to focus our hearts and minds on Godís greatest gift to us, Jesus Christ. Our music and prayers are our expressions of love and thankfulness in response to this timeless gift.
