Study The Spring 2018 issue will be the last quarterly issue of Just Women Magazine.  Declining subscriptions for the magazine (4 quarterly issues) has forced the end of the magazine subscription as we knew it.  Beginning now, Just Women will produce one annual study issue that will be the Disciples Women Study publication.  It will continue to be produced/delivered in January with pre-orders necessary by the beginning of December.

Called for God’s Purpose is the focus of the Just Women 2018 Study: 
Stories of call abound in the Bible, offering readers encouragement and promise that God rarely calls the equipped, but rather, God equips the called.  This eight-session Bible study will explore Old Testament and New Testament stories of women and men called according to God’s purposes. Rahab, Abigail, Lydia, Phoebe, Mary and Mary – just a few of the women whose stories are examined in this look at how we, as women, are called for God’s purpose

Copies of the 2018 Just Women Study material are available through the regional office (wendy@grrdisciples.org), or you can download a digital copy of the 2018 Just Women Bible Study (cost $6.99) at:  discipleswomen.org – click on Just Women link in the right banner and scroll to the “download” link.

The Deadline for ordering the 2019 Just Women Study issue will be December 1, 2018.  The cost is $12 when purchased from discipleswomen.org (if you purchase from region – cost will be $15 to cover shipping/handling)

Retreat - Beginning in 2018, and continuing for the next two years, the GRR Disciples Women will journey through an interim period, to re-vision and restructure the organizational components of the ministry between the three states.  We are discerning new ideas, new ways of unifying our gatherings, and new ways of "doing" ministry as Disciples Women.  This year, in addition to the fellowship days, there are several opportunities to join in retreats across the life of the region: 
  • The first retreat will be August 17-19 at the Arkansas 4H Center, Little Rock AR.  Keynote Speaker:  Rev. Linda White, former Senior minister at Park Hill Christian Church in North Little Rock
  • The second retreat will be September 14-16 at Eagle Ridge in Raymond MS.  Keynote Speaker Rev. Chesla Nickelson, Program Manager in the Office of Disciples Women
  • Our Regional Assembly gathering - details yet to be determined
We encourage women from all three states (AR, MS, & LA) to join us at one or more of these gatherings to connect, worship, fellowship, and serve, as WE move forward together.

is a vital resource that can be used in many areas of our church life. 
You can depend on the Disciples principles that are presented because the entire magazine is written BY Disciples Women (while the magazine is written by Disciples Women, it can be used across the congregation, not just in DW/CWF groups).   

Effective in 2018, Just Women will become a study resource only - we will no longer have a magazine subscription. 
The Just Women Study guide will be delivered in January 2019,
orders must be placed by December 1st.
