April 2019: A GATHERING OF WOMEN
By Pastor Tanya Lopez, Disciples Women Coordinating Minister
Calling All Wild Women of the West!
Disciples Women, grab your calendars! We are planning our second ALL WOMEN Interregional event. If you are longing for the company of other women, desire to deepen your spiritual walk, and want to be connected to amazing Disciples women across the West, then mark down June 12-14, 2020 in your calendars. We will all descend on Las Vegas for our Interregional event....we can't wait. The theme is "Seeking God's Grace in the Desert" with confirmed keynote speakers Rev. LaTaunya Bynum and Rev. Lori Tapia, who will enliven you with their passion for the Gospel. Come to the desert with us in 2020 and find the grace you are seeking. The best way to stay up to date is to come to our website and sign up for news about the event at http://bit.ly/2XGX52g
DISCIPLES WOMEN MISSION PROJECT 2019 Shelter Supplies for Women and Children We encourage Disciple Women’s groups to adopt a local shelter. Reach out to the staff of the shelter. Ask them what they need and then commence to providing what was requested. Please share with the Disciples Women office what you are doing and if you post about it on social media don’t forget the tag it with #DWConnect so we can all celebrate and support the work.
Let’s make 3,000 finger labyrinths for GA 2019!
Would you like to help make finger labyrinths to be given away at GA 2019?
All the details, patterns, and instructions are included on pdf files…just follow the links below.
When you are finished, write your first name, your congregation, and your city and state on the tags and staple one to each labyrinth. This will provide an opportunity for GA attendees to feel the far-reaching witness of Disciples Women.
Please send to: First Christian Church, 2500 University Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50311, Attention: Wende.
