Women's Fellowship Groups
The DWF purpose is 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 and to provide a channel through which women in the congregation and the regional Women’s Ministries in the US and Canada may be joined in fellowship and find means for effective participation in the Christian Church (DOC).
Projects / Offerings
DWF gives financial support to the
total work of the church. The Disciples Mission Fund aids home, foreign
missions and social assistance centers, as well as promotes fellowship,
education, growth and leadership of its members.
Throughout the year, women of the
DWF count their blessings in a very tangible way through offerings to a
Blessing Box. This offering supports church missions and women’s
ministries globally. Decorated boxes are available for purchase to be
used for daily individual offerings that members can make on their own
or according to suggestions on the Blessing Box
Calendar. The offerings are collected in March and
presented at the Kansas DWF Spirit Fest each spring.
DWF makes yearly contributions to

Columbia, Missouri; Tennyson Center for Children and Families at
Colorado Christian Home, Denver, Colorado; and the Kansas Christian
Home, Newton, Kansas.
