The Order of the Daughters of the King
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. A Daughter seeks daily to do the will of God, remembering Jesus’ words, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
We meet the first Saturday of the month September through May (second Saturday in January and April) in Payne Education Center Room 210/212 starting at 10:30 a.m.

Growing Through Teaching

What is the Mission of Yahweh?
Danielle Trent, Volunteer Manager at Mission of Yahweh, will speak about this incredible ministry that serves Houston’s homeless women and children. She will tell us about the work they are doing and how we can help.
Advent Quiet Day
This year in our theme of “Best Christmas Ever,” the Clergy will share their own Christmas experiences and talk about the best one of all. As usual, the Houston Boychoir will be opening the day! The Daughters are honored to host this special day of reflection and rest for our church family.
Reboot, Renew, Reengage!
For our first meeting of 2018, we will be planning for our outreach project and preparing our hearts for spring. Join us!
Outreach for Mission of Yahweh
This is always a fun meeting for the Daughters! We will work together for our annual outreach project. Items to be collected will be announced later.
Mother in Law, Daughter in Law
Daughter of the King Janie Putman will take us through her perspective-changing mother-in-law/daughter-in-law class. These relationships are vital to our family structure. The book A Change of Heart is available for purchase in St. Martin’s Bookstore & Gift Shoppe. Come and participate!
Every year our Daughters engage in a book study together. This year we will be reading the Rev. Tish Warren’s Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life. Warren writes eloquently about how the everyday tasks of our lives are filled with God’s love. It is always enlightening and fun.
We will be thanking our outgoing board and welcoming our new board for DOK 2018-2019. We also will share a small and lovely worship service.
