The Disciples Women of Central Christian Church installed new officers for the coming year and celebrated a remarkably successful 2016/17 with a luncheon, entertainment and modish activities.
The ministry is part of a national assembly under the Christian Church that meets monthly between September and May to encourage enrichment, education, and creative ministries to enable women to develop a sense of personal responsibility for the whole mission of the church. However, the organization is not limited to members of the Christian Church. “We seek to be a network of women committed to the justice-seeking, compassion-focused mission of Jesus Christ with no membership requirements or conditions.” Following that mission statement, all are invited and encouraged to attend Central’s Disciples Women’s Ministries.
Some of the outreach programs that the Disciples Women have supported this past year include Bryan’s House, Juliette Fowler Communities, Metrocare and MapleLawnElementary School.
The educational theme for the 2016/17 year was “Lavish Hospitality in the Bible” and the women were treated to a variety of lessons on God’s lavish grace and hospitality.
Entertainment included such delightful speakers and performers as Rose-Mary Rumbley and the former Ms. Senior Texas, Jill Beam. Fun outings included a trip to historic Waxahachie and lunch at the famous Dove’s Nest restaurant.
After the installation of new officers, Shelia Huffman, President; B. J. Austin, Vice President and Program Chair; Anne Pogson, Secretary and Parliamentarian and Carol Archer, treasurer, the ladies were treated to a salad luncheon.
Catered by Chef Scott Jones of Food Hugs Kitchen, lunch included a delicious chicken salad, a delightful Texas Caesar, fruit, bread and banana pudding. Visit this new Dallas-based business on-line.
Natalie Rachel, Huffman’s granddaughter, set up a “lipstick bar” of Lipsense lipstick, the lipstick that stays on your lips, and the women were invited to try a variety of shades of lipstick. A percentage of sales were returned to Disciples Women.
Kris Hundt of Kris Hundt Photography was on hand to capture the ladies in a professional photo-shoot. The head shots will be used in a new directory of Disciples Women for the coming year.
Central’s Assistant Music Director, Tim Caffee, entertained at the piano. Door prize winners were Olive Henderson, Carol Keller and Peg Dicken.
The luncheon was a festive way to welcome summer but continue to look forward to the coming year of Disciples Women. If you would like to visit the group and want more information you can contact Shelia Huffman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
