Our 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.

To provide a channel through which women in the congregations and the regional Women’s Ministries in the United States and Canada, may be joined in fellowship and find means for effective participation in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

In addition to the support for the whole church and mission which women provide through their local congregations, Disciples Women also bless the church with 50 percent of their Blessing Box offerings which go to support Disciples Mission Fund.

Blessing Boxes

God. Since 1999, Blessing Boxes have contributed over $3 million for the mission of the church, with over $600,000 of that going to support women’s ministries. The beautiful boxes include a message in English, Spanish, French and Korean. The Boxes and many educational pieces which provide materials necessary for staff and churches to highlight this significant stewardship campaign are available at this link.
