2017 Retreat Service & Giving Opportunities

Scholarships: Please help to offset costs of the DW Retreat Girls’ Program.  Let’s introduce Disciples Women’s Ministries to a new generation!  Funding is also needed to assist women who might not otherwise be able to attend. Contributions can be sent with retreat registration or separately.  All contributions are welcome.  Be sure to involve women in your congregation in fundraising for sisters who might need a transformative weekend away!  Inquire at the Regional Office about potential scholarship assistance.  All scholarships are confidential. 

Boutique:  Bring your handmade items – jewelry, crafts, cards, small furniture items, crocheted or knitted items, and more to be sold in the boutique!  Use your creativity!  Proceeds will help to fund GA Disciples Women’s Ministries.

Sunday Worship Offering: We will support the 2017 Woman-to-Woman project in South Africa and Ghana, the Women’s Retreat Scholarship Fund, and other recipients which will be announced at retreat.

Blessing Box Offerings:  Each church is invited to bring your check made out to “The Christian Church in Georgia” for Blessing Box offerings.  For more information, click on “Blessing Boxes” at www.discipleswomen.org.

Retreat Service Project: We will bring personal care and other needed items for Tapestri.  See separate listing of items needed.  

Sweet Dreams Pillowcase Ministry: If you’re preparing pillowcases for Egleston-Scottish Rite Hospital, bring them to retreat for delivery.  Directions are online at www.gadisciples.org women’s ministry link.

Pop tops: You may bring your aluminum can tops for delivery to Ronald McDonald Houses.

Retreat Service Project

Tapestri LogoTapestri is dedicated to ending violence and oppression in refugee and immigrant communities, using culturally competent and linguistically appropriate methods. As advocates for immigrant and refugee families affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and exploitation, Tapestri uses social work, community education, advocacy, and training to walk survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence from crisis to stability.
