Who we are?
The Daughters of the King is an order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, or churches in communion with it, or churches who are in the historic episcopate. Members undertake a rule of life, incorporating the rule of prayer and the rule of service. By reaffirmation of the promises made at confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself to a lifelong program of prayer, service, and evangelism, dedicated to the spread of Christ's kingdom and the strengthening of the spiritual life of her parish.
As Daughters of the King we are women of courage who have made a commitment to serve God our King. We wear the cross of the order as an outward and visible sign that we cannot live a day without Christ in our lives. We see our Order as a community of nurturing women, accepting all people, bridging differences and cherishing traditions. Moving toward the 21st century, empowered by the Holy Spirit, our vision is to encourage and enable all to be reflections of God's love, reaching out through prayer, service and evangelism to spread His kingdom.
First Tuesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. in Cobb Library. There are no meetings in July.
Prayer of the Order
"O eternal Father, you have sent us 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."
