DWM Fall Upate and Information (10.18.14)

  1. 1. Lisa Belue, President-North Carolina Disciples Women’s Ministries Joann Washington, Vice President (Workshops and Retreats) Maere Kay Lashmit, Vice President (Membership) Rev. Valerie J. Melvin, Associate Regional Minister Rev. John Richardson, Regional Minister North Carolina Disciples Women’s Ministries Christian Women’s Fellowship
  2. 2. 2 Disciples Women’s Ministries Christian Women’s Fellowship P.O. Box 1568 Wilson, NC 27894 Rev. Valerie J. Melvin, Associate Regional Minister October 31, 2014 Dear Disciples Women: I greet you during the crisp breeze of Fall, and with great expectations for Women’s Ministries in 2015! It is that time again when we share information from the Office of Disciples Women’s Ministries and our region. This information will be helpful in visioning and planning next steps for your ministry projects, with hopes that you will engage the full spectrum of women’s ministries. As time seems to quicken with each passing year, it seems the appropriate moment to remind us of just how far God’s grace has brought us. In the spirit of remembering, I share this history of Women’s Work in North Carolina (1781-1974). By the fall of 2015, the North Carolina Disciples Women’s Ministries/Christian Women’s Fel- lowship will be 144 years old. WOW! It is my prayer that reading this history will inspire you to prayerfully seek God for more ways to make history in your own women’s ministry/fellowship group by being a catalyst for change and growth! The Missionary Heritage in North Carolina Meeting in the home of Dr. F. W. Dixon, midway between Hookerton and Snow Hill, in the fall of 1871, his wife, Mrs. Sallie R. Dixon, and a friend, Mrs. Turner May, discussed the need of cooperative work among Christian women for the relief of “the poor in the community and other good work.” To secure money for this purpose each woman agreed to make and sell a dress. This they did and realized fifty cents each. They were joined in their efforts by Miss Clara A. Dixon (later Mrs. C. A. Grainger) who added fifty cents to the fund. Dr. Dixon and the pastor, Josephus Latham, each contributed fifty cents and became hon- orary members. Material was purchased, more dresses and shirts were made and a ready sale was found for all. “We felt the ready sales evidenced the Master’s approval and blessing of our efforts.” The original group of three women increased to eight and Mrs. Dixon was elected as president. Miss Dixon (Mrs. Grainger) became the secretary and the group adopted the names of “The Sisters Beneficent Society.” News of the work and organization spread rapidly and a second group was organized at Bethany Church in Edgewood County. They called themselves a “Sewing Circle” and Mrs. Sue Helen Draughn served as their lead- er. By this time also, nearly every woman in the Hookerton Church was a member of the Society and “such was their joy in it’s fellowship that it was felt the work should be presented to all Disciple women in North Carolina.” Despite the then current teaching in our churches regarding Paul’s admonition concerning woman’s silence in the church, Mrs. F. W. Dixon was persuaded that she should present the work of “The sisters Beneficent Society” at the convention that fall. At Wheat Swamp, October 5, 1876, Mrs. Dixon gave ‘the first public talk by one of our NC sisters.” At this time the name of the organization was changed to “The Sisters’ Mission Workers of Disciples of Christ.” The first officers were: Mrs. Sallie R. Dixon, (F. W.) president, Miss Clara A. Dixon (Mrs. Grainger)
  3. 3. 3 The Missionary Heritage in North Carolina (continued) vice-president, Mrs. Sue Helen Draughn, corresponding secretary, Mrs. Winnie R. Tull, recording secretary and Mrs. Noah Rouse, Treasurer. On October 25, 1876, a third society was organized at Kinston with twenty members. This group was called “The Sisters’ Working Society.” Since women were not yet bold enough to speak in the churches, a man, Jesse T. Davis, was employed as field worker. At the end of the first year twelve societies were working. Their funds were used to support the field worker in organization and evangelism. Support was also given to assist in establishing new churches, $275.00 being given to sustain R. W. Stancil in planning the new church in Winston-Salem. This was in 1890. At the State Convention held in New Bern, October 1891, the Women's Societies of Disciples of Christ in NC agreed to become an auxiliary of The Christian Women's Board of Missions, our national women’s organiza- tion, and to send all funds to the general treasurer of Indianapolis, Indiana. The national officers agreed to direct and supervise the local societies in cooperation with the state officers. In 1903 the first regular field secretary, Miss Mary Kilpatrick, was employed. Other workers in this capaci- ty have been Mrs. L. M. Omer, Miss Mary Irene Orvis, Miss Nanna Crozier, Miss Fanny May Dixon, Miss Eliza- beth Tesh, Miss Etta Nunn, Miss Myrtle Azbell, Mrs. C. N. Downey, Mrs. R. F. Hill, Mrs. H. H. Settle, Mrs. Elea- nor Smith, Mrs. E. W. Wyman, and Miss Elaine Lackey (Mrs, Lee Buckmaster) and Miss Raye Feltner. At the International Centennial Convention of Disciples of Christ held at Pittsburg in 1909, a membership of 603 women was reported and a centennial gift of $502.15 was made by the women of North Carolina. In 1924, at National Golden Jubilee of Woman’s Missionary Service, again held in Pittsburg, NC, women contributed some $1,500.00 as their Jubilee gift. The second fifty years of organized missionary work among the women of NC have been ones of much growth and inevitably, much change. Under the leadership of Mrs. H. H. Settle, who gave thirty-three years of de- voted and outstanding service as general secretary for the women of our churches, a conglomeration of many types of organizations; “Missionary Societies,” “Ladies Aids,” ‘Young Ladies Circles,” “Women’s Councils,” etc. merged in 1949 into then newly adopted National pattern of “Christian Women’s Fellowship.” Already found to the larger outreach of the Church through the 1910 merger of all national missionary and education boards and societies into The United Christian Missionary Society, Christian Women’s Fellowship today lifts up the “development of all women in Christian living and Christian service as part of the witnessing church of Jesus Christ.” The number of women serving in positions of leadership in local churches, in our state work and in national groups is indicative of the rich growth that has taken place among Disciple Women in recent years. During the years of 1960-1973 the work of Christian Woman’s Fellowship in NC was greatly enriched by the addition of the “Sister’s Home Missions” of the more than two hundred Black Churches in our state. Sharing on boards, gathering in retreats and workshops has brought warn fellowship and loving understanding among the more than five thousand women of CWF now actively involved in our state churches. Financial support of the total work of our Brotherhood on local, state, national and worldwide levels has steadily increased from the $500.00 gift in 1909 to a maximum of $79,257.00 in 1972-73.
  4. 4. 4 The Missionary Heritage in North Carolina (continued) In the spirit of unity, which is our Disciple heritage, women of our churches in NC gave up their autonomy as a separate organization. In a vote at the State Convention in Wilmington, NC, April, 1965, which brought into being The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in North Carolina, The Christian Women’s Fellowship was made a department within this body. This restructuring has brought richness and strength to all phases of the life of the church in our state and enabled women of NC to more fully express themselves as an integral part of Christ’s church on earth. Truly the descendants of the Sisters Beneficent Society are holding high that “flame of the Lord’s kindling” started 135 years ago through the faith of a woman. Note: Historical information before 1927 was taken from A History of Disciples of Christ in North Carolina by Dr. C. W. Ware. History compiled by Rev. Dr. Raye Feltner-Kapornyai, past NC Associate Regional Minister (photo on p2). The NC 2014 Woman-to-Woman delegate, Lisa Belue (also our DWM Cabinet President). Lisa’s tour included the Eiffel Tower, Paris France, Torre Pel- lice, Italy and Ancient Rome. She has much to share in 2015!
  5. 5. 5 MEMORIES: Wang Xiaoyang of Nanjing, China, Our International Sister in NC-June 2014
  6. 6. 6 Our International Sister in NC International Sister visits, shares story By Jessica Alexander Staff Writer | Posted: Sunday, June 29, 2014 9:30 am REIDSVILLE –First Christian Church, of Reidsville, welcomed an “International Sister” during their 11 a.m. worship service Sunday, June 22. Wang Xiaoyang, also known as Tammy from Nanjing, China, came to take part in the service and to share her story. Disciples Women Worldwide is what brought her here. “They are women that come from all over the United States, Canada and our global partners,” pastor of First Christian, Valerie Melvin said. “What we do is, we come together to take care of the goal of mis- sions, service, outreach, fellowship and study.” Tammy is a part of the research staff of the Nanjing Massacre Museum. She studied international relations, holding bachelor of art and master of law degrees and has served as an English teacher. She has completed an internship at the Hubei TV Station, served as a researcher for several Chinese social science projects and has experience as a journalist. “This is a really, really nice place to me,” Tammy said. “This is my first time here.” Following the service, Tammy flew to Atlanta for the Quadrennial Assembly, an international gathering hosted by Disciples Women that took place from June 25-29, and then she will fly to New York. “The church is very beautiful and there are many, many churches in China now, but it’s much more different here so I’m glad to be here,” Tammy said. Tammy’s connection to the U.S. is the Nanjing Massacre that happened in 1937 during World War II. The Japa- nese army captured Nanjing, killing more than 300,000 natives over a six week period. Five U.S. missionaries, two of Chinese decent, remained in China and hid thousands of Nanjing civilians to keep them from being killed. ”Tammy’s coming to us is to share part of her story and it is to share her historical Christian journey and a large part of it is the missionaries during the WWII,” Melvin said. “It has transcended time just like our story is slavery, how it has transcended time and how we’re still merging from those shackles.” Melvin believes that everywhere women go, they minister. “Whether it is teaching, whether it is speaking, whether it is in the medical industry, in politics, we believe women minister wherever they go,” she said. “You can feel the passion from Tammy with her heart.” Another “International Sister” from Republic of Congo was scheduled to be in attendance as well, but was unable. “I am very excited,” Tammy said. “The people here are very nice and outgoing and very friendly. I love it.” Reidsville Mayor Pro-Tem, Harry Brown, attended the service and presented Tammy with a gift on behalf of the city and city council.

  8. 8. 8 Breaking the Chains: Link by Link The International Disciple Women’s Minis- tries Executive Committee struggled, prayed, consulted with you and discussed among ourselves what our next social ac- tion would be for 2014 through 2018. We soon realized we have barely touched the tip of the iceberg where human trafficking is concerned. Women’s groups around the country feel they are just getting started working with this huge social action emphasis. As we traveled around the country conducting workshops, leading re- treats, and talking to you, overwhelmingly we heard you saying “we want to continue working with human trafficking”. The Disciples Women’s Leadership Council (formerly Staff Wom- en’s Fellowship) also voted to continue working with human trafficking. It is with great hope we go into the next quadrennium with Breaking the Chains of Human Trafficking: Link by Link as our social action emphasis. We want to focus on three areas of human trafficking, three links of the chain: Link 1. Sex trafficking, our focus is on women, men, boys and especially our young girls as young as 9 years of age who are being targeted by traffickers every day. Link 2. Labor trafficking/immigration with this our focus is on the labor trafficking that is at epic proportions and is closely tied to the immigration issues in this country. Link 3. Demand, our focus here is if there were no demand for sex and labor services there would be no trafficking. Decrease demand and we decrease Trafficking. This web site was developed to give you some more tools to help you and you group to get started or to continue your work on the social action emphasis. The information is not all in- clusive and it is a work in progress. As we go along we will add more information. For each Link we have included information, resources, links and suggested activities for each area. We hope these pages are useful for you and we encourage your feedback. May God Bless you as you work to Break the Chains of Human Trafficking: Link by Link. The IDWM... ...Service project 2014-2018 Memories of the Walk Against Human Trafficking-QA 2014-Atlanta, GA
  9. 9. 9 Woman-to-Woman Reflection –1 "Mission IS Possible and Necessary : I See You! When you think of a Missionary what comes to mind? Most people would say someone that travels out of country to a distant place to spread the love of Christ while helping to improve the living situation of it’s inhabitants. While that is true, can we not be Missionaries in our own land? Is it not our obligation to help our Brothers and Sisters whom we pass on the streets everyday as we travel to work, to dine with our friends and even as we go to Church to worship? While there is much work to be done overseas, we must look into our own back yards and begin to nurture our own people and be that lighthouse that shines in this dark world. Mission work for the 21st century requires all of the foundation of our history. We must be willing to step outside of our comfort zone, go to those overlooked neighborhoods, reach out to those “less desirable” persons and do as Christ did. A lot of times we seem to only want to visit other churches or reach out to those we know or people who already know Him but they are not the ones that need it the most. The ones that have not yet experienced what we as the redeemed are the ones that need to see us walk the walk that we talk so much about. Jesus did’t spend the majority of his time talking to those who are already saved but to those that were lost and knew him not. Romans 10:13-15 “Everyone who calls out to the Lord for help will be saved.” But how can they call to him for help if they have not believed? And how can they believe if they have not heard the message? And how can they hear if the message is not proclaimed? And how can the message be proclaimed if the messengers are not sent out? As the scripture says, “How wonderful is the coming of messengers who bring good news! There is your challenge! We are called to make Disciples and if we are not spreading the message as Romans states, we are failing our mission as Christians. I see you having bible studies that discuss women and men in violent relationships and teaching why this is unhealthy and NOT love and how there IS an escape! I see you teaching that there are children being mentally, physically and sexually abused and how we recognize those signs, rescue them from those situations and how we prevent these tragedies. I see you planting gardens at our churches so we can feed the less fortunate persons in our communities. I see you not only teaching love and tolerance but implementing those actions into your everyday life, especially with those you disagree with the most. With all of these things, I see you! Refreshed and Re- positioned for ministry!!! Tammy Simpson
  10. 10. 10 Woman-to-Woman-Reflection-2 Hello Ladies of North Carolina, my name is Christina Small. I was the Woman to Woman China 2012. I want to talk to you about mission work. To me mission work is being a servant for God. There can be different types of servants ones that go out and do physical work and others who pray for causes. After my mission trip I have tried to become a servant of God. Seeing what the woman of China will do to learn about God and what they will give up with no hesita- tion to serve Him has made me want to do more for Him. Most of you might know the story of two sis- ters Mary and Martha. If you don’t let me tell you about it. Their brother Lazarus, was a friend of Jesus. Jesus was invited to their house to supper. When he got there Maratha was busy, busy, busy… in the kitchen finishing up the last minute details, wondering where was Mary, why isn’t she in here helping me ? Doesn’t she know we’ve got an important guest. Well, Mary was in the living room sitting on the floor doing nothing! Martha marched right in there to set her straight. Mary was sitting on the floor at the feet of Jesus, all goo-goo eyed and just listening to Him. Mary! Come in here and help me Martha said. Well Jesus let her know that Mary was actually doing the more important thing, listening to Him. This is the story as my mother has told me. Now I want you ladies to think about the story and how does it tell about being a servant? To me it is saying there is two types of serving a physical and a spiritual. I am a Martha, I have no problem doing some- thing but, I struggle being a Mary just setting still and praying. What do you think a mission spirit looks like for the modern woman? For me I get two pictures in my head, I can see someone in China building a school for the kids. The other picture I get in my head is an older member of the church talking about the church and its history to a youth member. Where do you think the mission field is? I feel that the field to do mission work is anywhere and everywhere. How do you think you can support it? I feel like some of the way we can support mission work is by prayers, another is by sending money to help their cause. These are some things to consider when you think about mission work. I have loved being a Woman to Woman delegate. I have gotten to experience God’s love for me and other sisters on the other side of the world. The one thing that I got out of being a Woman to Woman is serv- ing. Seeing what the woman of China will give up to serve our Lord it has made me want to do more for God. I know that God has big plans for me and I want to serve Him with all of my heart. I want to leave you with a verse from the bible that talks about serving it is from 1Peter 5:2 “Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly not for dishonest gain but eagerly.” Christina Small Woman-to-Woman China 2012

  16. 16. 16 The Blessing Box and Bag...they still Matter! Women who use a Blessing Box tend to see God’s abundance and blessing more than scarcity and hardship. Come, join us. For 60 years, the women of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) have had a special way to express their gratitude to God for the blessings they have received – the Blessing Box. The Blessing Box was created in 1953, the result of a dream of the women who founded Christian Women’s Fellowship. Jessie Trout, who was CWF’s co-founder and first executive secretary, developed the idea as an over – and – above way to help fund the wid- er mission of the church. Since that time, Blessing Boxes have been kept in the homes and offices of women across the church to enable them to express their gratitude for everyday blessings by giving to others. In 2013, the Blessing Bag was introduced as part of this practice. Thanks is given for a sunny day, a birth, a reconciling experience, a welcome phone call, a child’s smile, a beautiful snow fall, a flower in full bloom, relief from pain, a good book, a safe journey, and many other things. It is a way of saying “Thank you God, for your world and especially for people. For those who participate, it is a spiritual discipline even more than a financial one. It helps keep a focus on gratitude to God and on the responsibility to share blessings with others. The amount put in may be a dime, a quarter or more. The amount is not nearly as im- portant as the discipline of regularly remembering God’s goodness through the acts of dropping in coins and praying prayers of thanksgiving. Blessing Box: The cost is $7.50 for a package of 10 boxes (S&H $2) or $60 for a package of 100 (S&H $10). Blessing Bag: The cost is $15 for 5 bags (S&H $2) or $250 for 100 (S&H $10) On the following pages, you will find the 2014 Blessing Box report for those DWM/CWF’s whose contributions were sent to the Regional Office. If you notice missing contributions, there is a strong possibility that you sent your contribution to the OGMP-Treasury Ser- vices in Indianapolis. While this channel for giving is fine, it means that your contribution might not show up on in the Regional Office records for months.
