The Mae Ward group is the name of Downey’s Disciples Women’s Ministries.  Mae Ward usually meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 7:00 pm in homes and the church parlor.

Mae Ward seeks to be a network of women committed to the justice-seeking, compassion-focused mission of Jesus Christ with no membership requirements or conditions. Together we creatively explore opportunities for study and worship for spiritual growth while learning about community local mission organizations that foster to the least of these.

We chose to name our group after a missionary, Mae Yoho Ward. We believe that Mae explored life with a deep sensitivity what it means to live constantly in companionship with God.
