We’ve done it once, we can do it again – show our support for Hannah’s Promise, here in Parsons, a home for unwed young women, facing the biggest decision of their lives. Do I keep this baby? Can I, alone, support a child financially, emotionally, or should I relinquish this precious baby to a loving, childless couple, desperate to be parents? (Aren’t we glad we don’t have to make this heartbreaking, important decision?)
Hannah’s Promise provides housing and services to support up to six expectant mothers age 17 and up in a Christ-like atmosphere. Well-staffed, it provides a personalized life plan, requiring school attendance or employment, medical appointments, independent living skills, nutrition, parenting classes, budgeting and referrals for mental health/substance abuse services, if needed.
Should they decide on adoption, staff assists them in locating an adoption service. Our monetary gifts make a big difference to those choosing live for their babies.
We invite the congregation, our church family, to help our Disciple Women support this life changing decision this May. Mark your envelopes “DW Project.” There are also “baby bottles” in the narthex that can be used for donations. Called “Change for Change”, you may check out a bottle, fill it with coins, cash or check, these “bottles” are a unique way to help out! Please remember to sign out your bottle.
We are always grateful for your support. You DO make a difference! Ruth group meets Monday, May 9th at the Kitchen Pass at 11 am. Deborah group meets Tuesday, May 10th. Read the bulletin here.

We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a community of about 850,000 Christians in 3,800 congregations in the United States and Canada.
Two groups of frontier Christians came together in 1832 to form the foundation of today's Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
They shared the view that people should not be excluded from fellowship in the church because they didn't adhere to a particular human-made creed.
They used to say there is "no creed but Christ." Today's Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) still thinks that way.
We study the Bible to deepen our connection to God through Jesus Christ, and to discover what God wants us to do.
