Volunteering... with Prayer...
Daughters of the King
Sisters of Bethany Chapter, Chapter 3474
The Daughters of the King is an Order devoted to prayer, service, and evangelism.
The Motto of the Order
For His Sake . . .I am one, but I am one.
I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
What I can do, I will do.
What I ought to do, by the grace of God I will do.
Lord, what will you have me do?
Our Business meeting is held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6:00pm in the meeting room.
Our Book Study meeting is on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm in the meeting room.
After we discuss the business of the order, we do our Bible Study, readings and discussion.
During the months of July and August, the DOK meet at members’ homes.
Feel free to join our meeting.
Continuing projects with which the Daughters are involved include:
• Knitting, crocheting or sewing prayer shawls/lap blankets - these items can be requested for those in need of prayer and comfort. If you know of someone that would like a prayer shawl/lap blanket, please contact Julie Wagner at firstname.lastname@example.org or any DOK member.
Starting in the fall, the Daughters of the King will have their regular monthly meetings on the second Sunday of each month from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., following the Adult Forum. This will make our meetings more convenient for members to attend.
This fall we will be exploring new service projects and will also be electing officers for a three-year term. The present officers are Julie Wagner, President; Vice President position is open; Joyce Floyd, Treasurer; and Elvia Jonespenick, Secretary.
The Daughters are currently praying for those who submit prayer requests, and "Healing Prayers" are offered on Sundays following communion at the late service. These prayers may be for healing of mind, body, and spirit for yourself, a family member or friend or for any situation of concern. Prayers may be requested for personal need or for a need in our world.
Did you know that there are about twelve members of the Daughters of the King at St. David’s? Did you know that the Daughters of the King is an international religious order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church? Did you know that Margaret J. Franklin instituted the Order on Easter eve, 1885?
Anyone woman interested in learning more about the Daughters of the King is invited to join us during our Tuesday meetings, or just speak to any one of the Daughters at St. David’s, or call the Church Office (248-557-5430).
Peace be with you,
Julie Wagner, President
