An Invitation to Women’s Discipleship Day
Discipleship, Event | by Deacon Jen Keogh
Dear Ladies of DCC,
Our next Women’s Discipleship Day will take place on February 1st and I invite you to join us for it! This one-day event is a rich opportunity to gather with our sisters to worship our great and glorious God, receive teaching from His Word by women in our body, and point one another to the hope of His Gospel and the immeasurable riches found in Him alone.
WHY PARTICIPATE IN WOMEN’S DISCIPLESHIP DAY?
With all of life’s demands as it relates to our work, school, kids, etc., it can be so easy for our hearts to lose sight of what is truly of eternal value and worth – our relationship with God and finding our joy in all His goodness toward us, in Jesus. Women’s Discipleship Day is meant to be a time for us to slow down, and learn and grow together in ways we can trust in God while we navigate all of life’s busyness as women of faith.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THIS DAY?
There will be rich, biblical teaching from women within DCC. We will be meditating on Jesus’ Parable of Soils from Mark 4:1-20. You will hear testimonies from other women on the worldly concerns that threatened to choke out their faith and how God delivered them from it. We’ll praise our God together in musical worship and prayer, as well as spend time in personal reflection and table discussions. Our goal for us ladies is to walk away from the day better equipped to till the soil of our souls for His Glory and for our edification.
WHAT IF I HAVE PLANS?
Consider changing your plans to prioritize time spent in scripture, prayer, and fellowship with one another. Our next Women’s Discipleship Retreat will not be until next fall, so we hope that you will make this day a priority to the benefit of your soul and your sisters in Christ.
WHAT IF I DON’T KNOW ANYONE?
Don’t worry – you’re not the only one! This event is a great opportunity to meet other women in DCC, and build and strengthen relationships. Consider inviting a friend; you don’t have to be a member to participate. In fact, invite the woman sitting next to you at our next gathering. One of our prayers for this day is that each woman will find the beginnings of a deep, discipling relationship with others in our body.
WHY ONLY A SINGLE DAY EVENT?
Our reason for a single day event is to eliminate many of the barriers that come with a weekend retreat. A single day event allows for much shorter commute, lower cost, and easier family logistics while preserving valuable time for studying God’s Word, worshipping and praying with one another, and practical application.
WHAT DOES THE $25 REGISTRATION FEE INCLUDE?
The cost includes a light breakfast, coffee throughout the day, a box lunch, materials for the day, parking, and a book giveaway. If this presents a financial hardship – just let us know in the registration form, as there are scholarships available!
WILL CORNERSTONE KIDS BE PROVIDED?
Please note Cornerstone Kids will not be provided as we’d love for this time to be focused and fruitful for the ladies. We encourage husbands, family, or friends to help care for children during this time.
