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:

 

“NO DORCAS MEETING OR QUILTING THE MONTH OF MARCH!”

 

DORCAS members, as I write this it is bitter cold out and many activities have been cancelled.  Since some of our members are out of town and still enjoying warmer weather, and we are caught up with our quilting, I suggest that we cancel quilting and our regular meeting in March.  It is in the middle of the Lenten season and everyone will be busy.  IF there is a youth breakfast on Easter Sunday, please plan on helping out with a dessert.

 

With Easter the first Sunday of April, I suggest we plan on quilting on Monday, April 12 and have our regular meeting on Thursday April 15 at 7:00 p.m. in the Board Room.  Prayerfully you are continuing to fill your Mite boxes so that we can have a good collection on that date to send in for the many projects that the District has voted on.  If by chance there is a Spring Zone Rally, I will get the information into the bulletin.  So watch and read them carefully.

 

If you have not paid your $6.00 dues for 2021 and wish to remain in DORCAS, please get it to Audrey Ehlmann ASAP.  Put it in an envelope in her mailbox clearly marked for “dues” with your name, so she knows what it is for.

 

For those of you who have attended Zone Rallies in the past, I am sad to inform you that former LWML Zone President Georgean Sawyer unexpectedly passed away on February 5, 2021, and her Memorial service was held on February 13, 2021.
