The Disciples Women of Central Christian Church celebrated an early Valentine luncheon Tuesday when Sherrie Narusis presented “A Heart Relationship with Christ,” and Rosemary Davenport turned fellowship hall into an elegant tea-room and served a pastry-filled vegetable strata and individual strawberry cakes shaped like hearts at the February meeting.
The ministries of Disciples Women are part of the movement for wholeness in a fragmented world by providing opportunities for spiritual growth, enrichment, education, and creative ministries to enable women to develop a sense of personal responsibility for the whole mission of the Christian Church.
Spiritual growth and education are emphasized through programs and speakers at the group’s monthly meetings like the one presented by Sherrie on Tuesday. Charity and outreach are always front and center in the ministry. Local programs supported by the group at Central include but are not limited to Juliette Fowler Communities, Metrocare, North Dallas Shared Ministries, Genesis Women’s Shelter, Maple Lawn Elementary, Stew Pot, Austin Street, Bryan’s House and more.
If you are looking for a purpose, the organization seeks to be a network of women committed to the justice-seeking, compassion-focused mission of Jesus Christ with no membership requirements or conditions.
If you are looking for a place to make new friends and cultivate meaningful relationships, the organization is open and inviting to all. Regular activities include a monthly luncheon following the meeting, fun and interesting outings and excursions (a visit to the Stockyards is planned for April) movies, musicals, classes (Latke cooking is coming soon) etc. There is always something on the agenda that you can attend.
You don’t have to be alone. If you have just moved here and are looking for ways to get involved—come visit. If you are an old-timer but have lost friends due to moving, aging or even death—come visit.
The next meeting will be the first Tuesday of the month at 10:30 a.m. at the church. Call Shelia at Central or email firstname.lastname@example.org
