decorating Gingerbread Houses
It’s Christmastime! At least it is Christmas Party Time for Central’s Disciples Women. Tuesday, December 4 the women will meet at 10:30 a.m. in the parlor of Central Christian Church to enjoy a special Christmas program and meeting.
Singer and actress, Lois Leftwich, will perform several Christmas selections from Broadway Musicals such as White Christmas from “White Christmas,” Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas from “Meet Me in St. Louis” and more. Before each song she will give a brief synopsis of the story-line that led to the musical’s selection.
If that program doesn’t warm everyone’s heart and put them in the Christmas spirit, a delicious hearty soup to warm body and soul will be simmering on the kitchen stove. Hot cider and cocoa will be enjoyed while the traditional cookie and treat plates are prepared for delivery to the elderly and infirm who are no longer able to join the activities at Central. A list of those receiving a plate of homemade treats will be provided at the meeting.
Christmas is the season of giving and the Disciples Women ‘s Ministry is sending a gift of $50.00 to each of the charities and organizations that the group supports. The list of recipients will be available at the meeting.
As always, cover charge for the event is a can of food or non-perishable item for North Dallas Shared Ministries and the cost for lunch is $5.00. And don’t forget to bring your sweets for the cookie plates. If you want to bake them in the kitchen, let Becky or Shelia know beforehand so the oven can be pre-heated.
The Disciples Women’s Ministry reaches out to the community throughout the year, but in December the spirit of Christmas fills fellowship hall. The season includes activities like baking and delivering pies to Stew Pot and Austin Street Center, children decorating Gingerbread Houses, filling and delivering Christmas Stockings to Juliette Fowler and more.
Come and be a part of this special organization. You do not have to be a member of Central, or any church for that matter, to belong with this group of special women that empowers each woman to find her voice and live out her call.
Please RSVP as only enough food is prepared and enough places set for those who have responded that they are attending. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
