MISSION OPPORTUNITIES AT GA
Blessing Bag/Hygiene Kits: Blessing bags for refugees and immigrants: While Disciples Women are associated with blessing boxes and blessing bags that contribute to funding for the whole mission of the church with a portion going to women’s ministries, this concept of blessing God’s mission through tangible expressions of gratitude is the basis for a mission project sponsored by Disciples Women at GA 2017. Together in acts of gratitude for all our blessings we are inviting attendees of the assembly to contribute to Hygiene kit blessing bags for refugees and those who are displaced. Disciples Women will be accepting completed bags as well as items to be included in bags. There will be an opportunity to put these blessing bags together at DW booth from items donated. Listed below are the items to be included. DW offers this opportunity to offer a tangible expression of gratitude for all God is doing and has done in your life while providing care for refugees and immigrants.
Personal care items may include but are not limited to:
Hand or body soap/wash/sanitizer Deodorant Feminine hygiene products Mouthwash Tooth brush/tooth paste Hand or body lotion Shampoo and conditioner Tissues
SEAL ALL ITEMS IN A ONE GALLON ZIPLOCK BAG
Blessing Blankets: Additionally, Disciples Women will be accepting blankets for vulnerable children and families of refugees and immigrants. If you are a quilter you are invited to put together a ‘quick quilt’ and bring to the booth so participants can knot them and offer prayers for those who will be receiving them. New blankets of any kind will be put to good use.
