The Disciples Women’s Ministry of Central Christian Church will resume monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of the month on September 3. An exciting program has been planned to kick off the 2019/20 year and our Westside neighbors and community are invited.
Five winning contestants from the Ms. Texas Senior America Pageant will be guest speakers and performers at the September meeting, sharing their personal experiences about the importance of community service in their lives. The pageant philosophy is based upon the belief that seniors are the foundation of America, and our most valuable treasure.
Ms. Texas Senior America 2018, Sherry Dodson, will tell us about the pageant, its purpose in enhancing the lives of senior Americans and what it has meant to her. She will also share her talent, her beautiful voice, singing the spiritual song, “He Touched Me.”
This year’s winner, the lovely and talented Joyce Brown, mother and grandmother, has been a volunteer at her church for over twenty-five years as well as donating her time to a homeless shelter, serving meals and offering words of encouragement to those in need.
You will meet Joyce and hear about her experiences in volunteering her time to help made a difference in the world along with the three runner’s-up in this year’s pageant.
First runner-up Kimberly Ghedi, who also won the talent portion of the pageant, will share her voice in song and her volunteer activities as will 2nd Runner-Up, Theresa Gwynne and 3rd Runner-Up, Debbie Vincent.
Theresa fosters and helps finds homes for homeless and abandon dogs and Debbie volunteers at Minnie’s Food Pantry, the National Alliance of Mental Health and is a parent advocate for special needs children.
The Disciples Women include the prayer “I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something; and what I should do and can do, by the grace of God, I will do,” in their monthly meetings as community service and outreach is vital to the well-being of ourselves and others.
If you have been looking for ways to volunteer your time to help fit together some pieces in a fragmented world, you will be inspired and entertained by these lovely and gracious women.
A buffet lunch will be served following the program.
