Jr. DOK Gathering

 
In preparation for Lent, the Mary & Martha Chapter of the Junior Daughters of the King shared in an Agape Meal on Saturday, February 23rd. This is a meal of Christian fellowship that mirrors the meals Jesus shared with his disciples and others throughout His ministry. Fellowship and community are celebrated around the theme of a meal that can include items such as bread, cheese, olives, grapes, and juice with scripture and music intertwined. Following the meal, the girls prepared and packaged homemade granola as an outreach for Miracle Place in Indianapolis. The afternoon concluded with the girls reviewing the JOY (Jesus, Others, You) and the Five Finger Prayer formats and creating a Lenten Prayer Chain with 40 days of prayer topics. For questions regarding the Jr. Daughters of the King (for girls in 3rd grade through age 18), please contact co-directresses, Ruth Everett or Kristine Canter at mmjrdok@gmail.com.

Flowers, Friends, and Fun

 
Members of Holy Family’s Mary & Martha Chapter of Junior Daughters of the King led a fellowship visit to Brookdale Senior Living Solutions in Castleton. The Junior Daughters were joined by siblings, parents, friends, and members of Holy Family’s Youth group. (To maintain the privacy of residents, only photos of youth are shown.) Holy Family members visited the rooms of residents as well as common areas and handed out flowers to all who wanted them. Special thanks are extended to Brookdale representative Destiny who guided the visitors through the facility. This is a continuing project of Holy Family’s youth that was inspired by an impromptu visit to an assisted living facility during the mission trip of 2017.

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?

Daughters of the King are Christian women, both lay and ordained, who are strengthened through the discipline of a Rule of Life, and supported through the companionship of their sisters. They are at different stages of their Christian journeys – some have just begun and some have been on this path for a long time. But no matter where they are on their sacred journeys, their primary goal is the same – to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known to others.
