Paula Deen's Family Kitchen
“How to define your core brand values and why you should” was the topic of discussion at my church’s weekly meeting. Pastor Ken Crawford of Central Christian Church asked the question in relation to our church mission and our role in it. We went through an exercise of typical church stereotypes— what we like about church and what we dislike.
I brought the same question up at lunch the following day.
Holly Puig quickly answered that the camaraderie among the congregation and genuine feeling of family was what stood out about Central. The four other ladies, all members of Central, agreed that a friendly, welcoming attitude, inviting all without judgement, is an important part of “church” as a religious organization.
Where were we during this conversation? Having lunch at Paula Deen’s new restaurant “Family Kitchen” in Fairview, Texas eating “down-home” cooking, family style.
My point is that the Disciple Women, and men, don’t just have fellowship on Sunday morning or during a monthly meeting. Our friendships extend into the week. Central and the Disciples Women’s Ministry build relationships.
Our first meeting of the 2018/19 year of Disciples Women’s Ministry will be held on Tuesday, September 4 at 10:30 a.m. in the parlor at Central.
Rev. Deborah Morgan-Stokes will be the guest speaker. Deborah is the Senior Pastor of East Dallas Christian Church and she will present “Positioned for Purpose, the Story of Lydia” from Just Women’s study guide “Called for God’s Purpose.”
Following the program, lunch will be served in fellowship hall. The cost for lunch is $5.00 per person.
Moms and Grandmas, now that school is back in session, treat yourself and make new friendships. You do not have to be a member of the Christian Church, or any church, to discover all that Disciples Women has to offer. Plan to visit and bring a friend.
