Pie Making in Central's kitchen.
Following a summer break, Disciples Women’s Ministries of Central Christian Church will resume their monthly meetings next week on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 10:30 a.m. in the church parlor located at 4711 Westside Dr. in Dallas.
Last year was a huge success and everyone enjoyed the series “Women of Central, Meet Women of the Bible.” The talented women who chose a Biblical character and spoke about her left the group with a renewed spirit of how women who lived in Biblical times faced challenges and issues similar to those that women face today.
This year the study is “The Table and Beyond: Lavish Hospitality in the Bible.” At the September meeting, Dr. Wyatt Fenno will reflect on one of the most thought-provoking meals in history—The Last Supper.
Other programs during the year will feature local storyteller, Rose Mary Rumbley, former Ms. Senior Texas, Jill Beam, a field trip to a local point of interest as well as charitable outreach to the community.
Outreach programs include a variety of philanthropies such as a coat drive for low income children, baking and delivering holiday pies to the Austin Street Shelter, collecting uniforms and school supplies for an area low-income school, delivering food to North Dallas Shared Ministries and Christmas cookies to elderly shut-ins. Following each meeting, the women enjoy a delicious luncheon.
If you are looking for a way to help the community while meeting new people and making new friends, you may find your niche at Central Christian Church. However, you do not have to be a member of the church to participate in the Disciples Women’s organization.
For more information about our monthly meetings and ministry, call program chairman, Shelia Huffman at 214-827-4568. Our group may be just what you have been looking for.
