Suzie Patterson and Dovie Wu enjoy lunch.
The women of Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) welcomed September and the 2015/16 year of the Disciple Women’s Ministry with a presentation and fall luncheon Tuesday morning .at the church.
The women’s ministry provides opportunities for spiritual growth, enrichment, education and creative outreach enabling women to develop a sense of personal responsibility for the mission of the church.
This year’s focus is women of the bible and Central’s Associate Minister, Kristina Fleming, gave a very studied and thought-provoking presentation on “The Women at the Tomb.”
“There are a lot of fascinating women in the bible.” Fleming said. “And the women at the tomb were especially significant because they witnessed the most cataclysmic event in Christian history and then went on to communicate it to others.”
Having studied the subject, citing scriptures, Fleming gave an account of the women who were at the tomb along with Mary Magdalene and explained why biblical scholars believe they were there.
Fleming often compared the role of those women to women’s roles in society today.
Following the presentation, and a short business meeting, the disciple women enjoyed a delightful salad and dessert buffet in the church fellowship hall.
Central is located at 4711 Westside Drive. Sunday worship is at 11 a.m. and all are welcome.
