What do you call a mature women’s pajama party that lasts 2 days and two nights and everybody has a wonderful time … sewing quilts? At my church we call it Dorcas. It is the “rockingest” and most productive Dorcas of any church we’ve ever been a part of. The weekend is officially called a Dorcas Quilting Retreat held at the estate of their inspired leader, Ruth Estep, to eat and sleep and laugh and stay up late gabbin’ and making quilts for 48+ hours. They are currently creating personalized quilts for the residents of Wears Valley Ranch, a Christian Children’s Home in Kentucky, with the color preferences and themes of each individual child. Their long-term goal is to blanket Heartland America … These gals can show you how to “glorify God and enjoy him forever!”

The culture may be in the midst of a dumpster fire, but the joy of the Lord reigns in our loving church family.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope” (Romans 15:13).

See you in church
