The women’s fellowship group, also known as WORD (Women of Religious Diversity), is a vital part of what means “Community” at Dublin Community Church. We are a very diverse group of women in every way, age, background, lifestyle, and denomination. We have many members of Dublin Community Church who attend, and many others from other Dublin and area church congregations.
We invite you to join our very active, diverse group of women as we study, fellowship, and support each other. We have two groups that meet regularly from September through May each year.
WORD a.m.: 40-50 women continue to gather each Friday morning, Sept. through May, 9:15-11:15 a.m. in the Goodwill Room of our church. Truly a diverse group of women in every way: age, denomination, background, Christian and Muslim, learning from each other in love and respect, and supporting each other in happy and challenging times. WORD a.m. is currently studying “Christians Engaging Israel,” a video/workbook study of the importance of all 3 Abrahamic faiths in the Holy Land. The study also engages us in discussion about the Israel/Palestine conflict. We will begin a book discussion on Nov. 6th, titled: Belief Without Borders, Inside the Minds of the Spiritual But Not Religious. In January, 2016, we will begin a book discussion titled: Undivided, A Muslim Daughter, Her Christian Mother, Their Path to Peace.
WORD p.m.: A smaller, but consistent and dedicated group of women gather the 2nd and 4th Thursday evenings of each month, 7-8:30 p.m. in the Parlor of our church. They are currently studying Belief Without Borders, and will also begin Undivided in January.
WORD 2nd Sunday meets on the 2nd Sunday of each month, 8:30-9:45 a.m. They are currently studying Belief Without Borders, and will also begin Undivided soon.
All are welcome to attend any group that is convenient, childcare is offered free of charge during WORD a.m. only. Our group is open to women of all ages, backgrounds, and religious affiliations, and we welcome all to come. Feel free to invite friends who might be interested as well. For any of the sessions, please contact Barb Anderson, 614-783-7998, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information or to sign up.
We look forward to continuing our journey of faith together as we welcome even more interested women to this wonderful group. We hope you’ll join us as we seek to learn more about God’s Word, and His plan for our lives.

A few comments from our group when asked to give their thoughts on WORD include:
“Everyone is very welcoming. They always provide an opportunity for me and my friends to talk about our faith, its differences and similarities.”
“Besides becoming more knowledgeable of the Bible, I’ve been fulfilled to be a part of such a gracious, supportive, and warm group of women. It has been a gift from God.”
“Being a part of this group has helped me stay more in touch with my spiritual self.”
“I feel so strengthened by this group. They build me up through prayer, support, humor, and general fellowship.”
“You can feel the love and support the moment you walk in.”
