Daughters of the King

There will be a short informational meeting for those who would like to know more about the Daughters of the King ministry to be held April 30 at 9:30 a.m. in the Conference Room. The Order of the Daughters of the King is a ministry for women whose mission is the extension of Christ's Kingdom through Prayer, Service and Evangelism. ("Evangelism," meaning that Daughters recognize that our faith is not to be a private faith hidden in our hearts. Our faith is to be lovingly and joyously proclaimed so that Jesus Christ, lifted up in our lives and in our words, might draw all to Him, that all might experience His love and saving grace.) Training classes will begin soon. For more information, you may visit www.doknational.org.

A Further Journey: A Men's Spirituality Group

2nd and 4th Mondays @ 7 p.m. in the Chapel (May 14 )   

"Closeness to God at Peaks and In Valleys" on Monday, May 14. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Mondays from 7 - 8:30 p.m. in the Chapel of the church building. All men are welcome to join us for this time of enriching conversations of honesty and spirituality, with no judgement or criticism. The Bible recounts man's closest encounters with God at physical and emotional high points and low points. What is it about both ends of the spectrum that can bring us closer to God? What is our own experience of finding spiritual connection at places of great beauty and joy as well as periods emptiness and loss? This discussion is loosely inspired by Matthew Fox's book, The Hidden Spirituality of Men, which can be previewed on Amazon, but pre-reading is not necessary.
