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).   Additionally, a subscription supports a Disciple-written publication that is relevant to our Disciples Women AND many other areas of our church.

Each of the four issue-packed magazines are well worth the $19 subscription price or
$36 for a two-year subscription.

Highlights of EVERY Just Women magazine include:
Theme articles inspired by scripture;
Devotions, meditations and prayers;
Leaders guide is incorporated into the Study issue
Leader guides for non-Study issues (Summer, Fall and Winter) are available as a free download on discipleswomen.org
Stand-alone Bible study written by Disciples women scholars;
Information and/or discussion from Woman-to-Woman Worldwide trips;
Service project ideas
Reflections on healthy living, stewardship and Disciples history;

Many Ways to use Just Women magazine
Bible Study for DW/CWF meetings
Can be used to lead a Sunday School class (adult, youth or children)
Use it for Wednesday night Bible Study and missions
For churches that don’t have a DW/CWF group, it’s still a valuable resource that can be used for personal learning, growth and meditation
Adapt for children’s sermon or a children’s program
So much more than a Bible Study – articles, information, meditations, conversations, all of which can be used in any group in your congregation

Disciples Women Prayer 

Unto you, O God, we give our thanks and lift our hearts in prayer.
May your presence be with us and your love
surround us as we work together as women of faith.
Open our eyes to the needs of the world and
fill our hearts with concern for all people.
Guide us so that we may truly serve you.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen. 

Disciples Women Benediction

God, be merciful unto us and bless us;
And cause your face to shine upon us;
That your way may be known upon the earth,
your saving health among all nations
through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
