Blessings and love from Disciples Women.

Life in the time of COVID-19: We know that these are times that send us into deep reflection while trying to deal with the practical day-to-day changes. Like ministries everywhere Disciples Women is taking very seriously the call to ‘flatten the curve’ by social distancing, restricting travel and gathering in groups of 10 or less. We hope that you are taking this advice seriously as well.

In the meantime, we are working from home, limiting our exposure as well as possibly exposing others to the virus. We are taking turns doing quick visits to the office to check mail, pay bills, and other essential functions. For the most part, we are not physically present in the office. We continue to work remotely and will continue to answer emails and return your phone calls. Please be patient with any delays you have in shipping and the need to leave a message for us to return your call.

Our work continues and we pray for all of you knowing that your ministry continues as well though they all look very different now.
Blessings and peace from Disciples Women Staff.

Disciples Women’s Ministries is a conduit for diverse connections empowering each woman to find her voice and live out her call. (Micah 6:8)
As part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Disciples Women welcomes all to the table as Christ has welcomed us. 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 church.
