WHAT ARE BLESSING BOXES AND HOW TO GIVE
For over 60 years, Disciples Women have used Blessing Boxes to express our gratitude for the many blessings of life. These little boxes have sat on window sills, desktops, bedside tables, and bookshelves ready to receive coins dropped in by women giving thanks. Coins from the many boxes have been combined to support the mission of the wider church. Click the button or more information.
