Text Box:

TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH

DORCAS SOCIETY

The DORCAS Society (a member of the LWML) and meets on the third Thursday of every month (except for July & August) at 7:00 pm at Trinity for devotions, a meeting and refreshments.

 

Twice a year we hold special events; such as a salad/soup/dessert supper. Where each member brings a dish to share, a white elephant gift and play a game. It loads of fun!

 

DORCAS also holds two fund raisers a year - a bake sale in September and a cookie sale in December - to raise money for our monthly mission projects. Ten percent (10%) of our proceeds go to Mites, and of course we support the LWML Mites throughout the year as well.

 

We also enjoy gatherings at the church for quilting on the first Monday of every month at 9:00 am. In the past couple of years we have donated close to 50 quilts to various Veterans homes in Missouri. If you enjoy this type of activity, we would love to have you join us. All you need to do is bring needles, thimble, scissors and any other sewing supplies you think you may need and a brown sack lunch...we provide the material and fellowship!

 

Throughout the year, the members of the society also assist with other events as needed. We invite “all” women of the congregation to join or attend our meetings, events, fundraisers and quilting gatherings. Occasionally the husbands are invited to the salad/soup/dessert supper, as well.  You don’t have to be a member to attend; we would just like to share in the fun and have you come and see what it is we do.

 

For more information and details please contact:

President - Doris Burns at 636-528-5038

Secretary - Mary Wehmeyer at 636-577-6601

At Trinity we have many great groups for members to join, volunteer and participate in fellowship. We hope you’ll join us!

DORCAS NEWS:

 

It was good to see the members that attended the meeting in April as we had many decisions to make.  Even though we were unable to have any fund raisers last fall, because of the generosity of the members through the Elder’s basket on LWML Sunday last October and the donation from the Bazaar Committee from the Silent Auction in December, we were able to fulfill our mission pledge.

 

DORCAS Quilting is scheduled for Monday, May 3rd at 9:00 am in the Multi-Purpose Room at Trinity.  Ladies don’t forget your sack lunch.  All ladies of the congregation are invited to participate

 

And the DORCAS regular meeting will be held on Thursday, May 20th at 7:00 pm.

 

JUNE EVENTS:

Quilting is scheduled for Monday, June 7th at 9:00 am for anyone who is available, as summer travel begins.

 

And, the decision was made to go to The Village of the Blue Rose in Louisiana, MO for lunch on Friday, June 18th, time YTBD.  (Food prices are reasonable).   Janet Riney volunteered to make the arrangements.  Watch the bulletin for further details regarding reservations, carpooling, time, etc.  As always we would love to have any women of the congregation who would enjoy an outing come and join our group!
