Daughters of the King

Mary and Martha Chapter

The Order of the Daughters of the King® (DOK) is a spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Service and Evangelism. We have made a commitment to Jesus as our Savior, and we follow Him as Lord of our lives. We are an Order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the Historic Episcopate. Today our membership includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches


Blessed Eastertide!!
This is the season of celebrating many gifts: the gift of the Resurrection of our Lord, the gift of joy, and the gifts of renewal of creation and revitalizing our Christian purpose.
The “Daughters” have been busy during this Easter season, in prayer and service. 

In mission, the “Daughters” recently donated over $130 in medical supplies toward the church’s collection efforts for the people of Ukraine. Our heartfelt prayers are with the Ukrainian people.

We would also like to thank all those who have been donating supplies for our mission work with Liberia. We are hoping to send the next shipment of barrels to Liberia in June. The barrels are huge!! We really need everyone’s help in filling them. Please consider buying some school supplies, toiletries and PPE supplies. If you have women’s and children’s clothing that you no longer need please donate them. Please, spread the word! Every little bit helps these children living in poverty. Remember, 100% of the shipping costs will be paid for by a grant from the National Office of the Daughters of the King. Donations can be dropped off in the foyer before and after our church services or during office hours on Tuesdays & Thursdays, 10am-1pm.

For His Sake,

For His Sake….I am but one, but I am one.

I cannot do everything, but I can do something.

What I can do, I ought to do. What I ought to do, by the grace of God, I will do.

Lord, what will you have me do?

The Prayer of the Order

O Eternal Father, you have sent u s your Son to teach us things pertaining to your heavenly Kingdom. Give your blessing to our Order wherever it may be throughout the world. Grant that we, your Daughters, ever may discern your truth and bear the cross through the battles of our earthly life. Give us strength to overcome temptation and the grace to work to spread your Kingdom and to gather your scattered sheep within your fold. Pour out upon us the sevenfold gift of the Holy Spirit that we may always remember it is your work we are called to do, that all we think, do or say may be pleasing in your sight. We ask it all For His Sake, our King and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
