Therefore let all who are faithful offer prayer to you; at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters shall not reach them.  You are a hiding-place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with glad cries of deliverance.
-- Psalm 32:6-7

UCC Disciples Women: LIVE! 
Committed and Active in 2022  

DW launched our program year in August with a luncheon for all women (and we fed a few men and families too!)  Our thanks to the congregation for helping us subsidize the catered lunch so that all were free to come.    Most importantly: we assembled 96 school kits for church world service.   

In September we began our program year of monthly Bible studies that take place each third Saturday from 2-3.   Join us on Zoom for studies of some of the most fascinating women in scripture.   Let Bonnie know if you’d like to be added to the zoom call.   

On November 12th from 9-noon we will go to the Wider Circle in Silver Spring to help clean, sort, and distribute household items contributed for low-income and, sometimes, formerly homeless families and individuals as they are placed in housing.  Tell Bonnie or Sara if you’d like to join us. 

Stay tuned for more about our Holiday celebration in December!
