Prayer, Service and Evangelism, is what the DOK is about, as well as study and sharing to encourage growth as Christian women. All women of the church are invited, and are encouraged to come see what DOK is all about.
The Order of the Daughters of the King (DOK) is a spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of prayer, service and evangelism. Members of the order—women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the Historic Episcopate—pledge to follow Christ; to worship God every Sunday in His church; and to work, to pray, and to give for the spread of His Kingdom . This past year gatherings were held the first Saturday of the month, beginning with refreshments and fellowship at 9:30 a.m. Meetings started at 10:00 a.m. and began with a devotional followed by a brief business meeting and a book study; the sessions closed with special prayers. All women are invited and welcomed to our meetings.
Holy Trinity’s chapter had a busy year in 2014. Members prepared food and served at all funeral receptions; assisted with the English Afternoon Tea; provided Thanksgiving baskets for shut-ins; supported the sister chapter in Figaro, Haiti, through donations by members; and hosted the parish’s annual Wassail celebration. They supported the prayer chain and assisted with the Lay Pastoral Care Ministry, which was founded at Holy Trinity in 1989 by the parish’s chapter of Daughters of the King. Members were involved in groups throughout the parish such as the Altar Guild, the Flower Guild, the Connections Ministry, the Eucharistic Ministers, the Souls ’n Stitches Ministry, and the Christian Formation groups for women. Daughter’s of the King just reorganized the Guild of the Christ Child.
