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:

Vice President – Charlotte Huslage at 636-462-2745

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!
