Daughters of the King

Daughters of the King

Daughters of the King will begin reconvening as of Tuesday, September 1st from 7:00-8:30 pm in the parish hall. New members are welcome and encouraged to join us for any of our meetings.

Daughters of the King is an order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the historic episcopate but not in formal communion. The membership of the St. Andrew’s chapter currently includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches.

Mission and Purpose of the Order is to serve as the extension of Christ’s Kingdom though prayer, service and evangelism.
Daughters of the King is a ministry designed to inspire women through daily devotionals and various events that meet both the spiritual and relational needs of women.  For many of us, this is a daily spiritual practice and a way of living out our vow of prayer as Daughters of the King.  We may differ in our approach, the time of day, or the resources that we use; the intention of reading daily devotions and praying is the same – to bring us closer to God.

Why “Daughters of the King”?
The term “daughter” expresses relationship.  When one discovers that God loves us simply because of the relationship we have with God, then we can live free from the burden that performance-based love brings.  A Daughter of the King is no particular age, race or ethnicity.  She is every woman that has chosen to receive God’s unfailing love and seek every day to love God in return.

Our history is as rich as our ministry.  The Spirit of the Living God truly inspired our founding mothers and the clergy who supported them.  Today, nearly 130 years later, God is still moving among us, drawing all “Daughters” to a closer, more personal relationship through dedication to prayer, service and evangelism.
If this is something you are interested in, we would love to have you join us.  Come see what we are all about.  We meet on the 1st Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm and end anywhere from 8:00/8:30 pm.  The meeting is held in Haviland Hall of the church building, on the north side of the first floor.  If you need child care, please let us know so that we can make arrangements.  Please contact us if you have questions or need more information.

Pastoral Care at St. Andrew’s has long been a priority for both the congregation and the clergy.  Often care of our congregation is seen as just a clergy responsibility.  We are all called to participate in caring for one another as we all participate in the priesthood of Jesus Christ.  There are many verses in the Bible that call us to action:

Galatians 6:2
Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ
Romans 12:10
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor
Matthew 25:40
Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of mine, even the least of them, you did it to me.
