Disciples Women’s Purpose:

To provide 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 of Jesus Christ.

Disciples Women is not just another club.

It’s women…
seeking….
serving…
supporting…

Women seek

a closer relationship to God through Bible study and prayer,
to better understand the world,
to find God’s purpose for ourselves in this world.

Women serve God

through caring for needs in the local church, through projects to help those in need beyond the local church.

Women support

one another as sisters in Christ
the world ministry of the church.

Today Disciples Women is not the only channel through which women can take part in the work of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), it is the oldest channel. As the organization remains sensitive to and grows with the issues of the era in which it finds itself, it continues to fulfill its purpose.

“We declare to you what we have seen and heard so that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ” (I John 1:3).

Today’s Disciples Women is designed for a variety of women, to meet diverse needs:

to provide opportunities for spiritual growth,
to provide opportunities for enrichment,
to provide opportunities for education,
to provide opportunities for creative ministries,
to develop a sense of personal responsibility for the whole mission of the church of Jesus Christ.
