Now in Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which translated in Greek is called Dorcas); this woman was abounding with deeds of kindness and charity which she continually did. And it happened at that time that she fell sick and died; and when they had washed her body, they laid it in an upper room. Since Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples, having heard that Peter was there, sent two men to him, imploring him, 'Do not delay in coming to us.' So Peter arose and went with them. When he arrived, they brought him into the upper room; and all the widows stood beside him, weeping and showing all the tunics and garments that Dorcas used to make while she was with them. Acts 9:36-39 NASB
The Dorcas ministry works to provide items for our missionaries. We have worked to provide items for our missionaries for the global outreach conference. When a missionary contacts Dorcas with a need that can be sewn, the group will see if they can provide it. We have created full sized quilts, blankets that have gone to China, tote bags that have gone to Honduras, and many more things.
We meet on 4th Tuesday of the month from August to May, except November. We get together from 10am until 2pm, but you can come when you can come for any or all of that time.
If you would like to help with the ministry, contact the church office and ask for Leanne Carmichael’s contact information.
