An Invitation to Women’s Discipleship Day (Saturday, March 19th)

Discipleship, Event | by Deacon Jen Keogh

Dear Ladies of DCC,

On Saturday, March 19th, we will finally be able to gather for our first Women’s Discipleship Day in over two years! How my soul has longed to gather with my sisters. At last, it is safe and possible to do so! I urge you to take advantage of this one-day event to worship our great and sovereign Lord, receive teachings by fellow sisters in DCC, and point one another to the God of peace. Our time will be anchored in Philippians 4:2-13 in which we’ll consider the contentment found in Christ alone.

Why participate in women’s discipleship day?

Over the past two years, we have experienced countless circumstances to tempt us to despair and anxiety—above and beyond those that everyday life, work, and relationships bring. This year, not only do we get to gather in a way we have been prohibited from, but we will also be diving into a text abounding in the remedy for our modern anxiety. Women’s Discipleship Day is meant to be a time for us to slow down and learn and grow together in putting off anxiety and finding ourselves wholly surrounded by the peace of God.

What can I expect from this day?

We’ll have homegrown teachers expositing Philippians 4:2-13. You will hear testimonies from other women on how they cultivated contentment in their lives. We’ll praise our God together in musical worship and prayer, as well as spend time in personal reflection and table discussions. Our hope for the day is that each of us grows in intimacy with one another and with the God who gives us His peace in our minds, our circumstances, and our relationships.

What if I have plans?

Consider changing your plans to prioritize this opportunity as it is the first time in over two years that we can gather like this. This rich time spent in scripture, prayer, and fellowship with one another is of great worth to your soul.

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 or strengthen relationships here. 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.

What does the $25 registration fee include?

The cost includes a light breakfast, coffee throughout the day, 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?

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.
