Do you think you might like acting, but don’t have time to memorize lines or go to endless rehearsals? Then Grace Players Reader’s Theatre may be for you. This group meets each Monday at 7:00 p.m. and rehearses scenes to perform at various venues.
Order of the Daughters of the King
The Daughters of the King is an Order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal, Anglican, Lutheran (ECLA) or Roman Catholic churches. Members undertake a Rule of Life, pledging themselves to prayer, service and evangelism, and dedicated to the spread of Christ’s Kingdom and the strengthening of the spiritual life of their parish.
Our Grace Chapter generally meets at 9:30 a.m. on the first Saturday of every month, September through May. Guests are always welcome. Training for new members is held in the fall.
Some of the service projects of the Daughters include serving a lunch to newcomers and the dean on an “as-needed” basis; delivering altar flowers weekly to parishioners in the hospital or care homes; procuring lectors and oblationers for the 10:30 worship service; providing receptions as desired by Cathedral families in conjunction with funeral services; preparing a parish dinner during Lent; collecting soup labels to benefit a school; coordinating the annual United Thank Offering; providing a dinner to families with new babies; praying for, contacting, and sending cards to home-bound parishioners, Daughters, and those on prayer lists.
If you are a woman called to grow in community with other women in prayer, evangelism and service, we invite you to prayerfully consider becoming a Daughter of the King.
Stephen Ministries’ Core Purpose is summed up in the words of St. Paul in his letter to the Ephesians: “To equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12-13).
Stephen Ministers are matched with persons in the parish who are going through a difficult time or who could use someone alongside them to listen, encourage and pray for them. Anyone who is interested in receiving care from a Stephen Minister is encouraged to contact Stephen Leaders Gwen McClain (506-6929) or Karel Ramsey (232-1452).
