Organizations at Christ Episcopal Church
Daughters of the King (DOK)
Christ Episcopal Church has a bilingual – English and Spanish – DOK chapter that supports a variety of ministries in our church community.
“Reaffirming the promises made at Baptism and Confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself to a life-long program of prayer, service and evangelism. She receives support in this commitment from a worldwide community of like-minded women.
In solidarity with one another, all Daughters everywhere make the same promises upon their admission to The Order.
- To obey the two Rules of The Order: the Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service.
- To offer at all times loyal aid to our clergy and parish to spread Christ’s kingdom.
- To wear faithfully the cross of The Order.
- To work for the purposes of The Order as God may give us the opportunity.”
“Daughters of the King are women and girls between the ages of seven and one hundred and seven who desire a closer walk with the Lord. We are Christian women, both lay and ordained, who are strengthened through the discipline of a Rule of Life, and supported through the companionship of our sisters. We are all at different stages of our Christian journey – some have just begun and some have been on this path for a long time. But no matter where we are on our sacred journeys, our primary goal is the same – to know Jesus Christ and to make Him known to others.”
Brotherhood of Saint Andrew (BSA)
Christ Episcopal Church has a bilingual – English and Spanish – Brotherhood chapter.
Mission of the BSA: To bring men and youth to Christ.
The Brotherhood endeavors to accomplish this mission through the threefold disciplines of Prayer, Study and Service.
Disciplines of Prayer, Study, and Service
- Discipline of Prayer. To pray daily for the spread of Christ’s kingdom, especially among men and youth, and for God’s blessings upon the labors of the Brotherhood.
- Discipline of Study. To study the Holy Scriptures regularly and the teachings of the Church, to attain a better understanding of how to follow Christ and bring others into his kingdom.
- Discipline of Service. To make continuous efforts, week by week, to bring others nearer to Christ through his Church.
The prayer group comes together once a month for a time of spiritual fellowship, prayer, and spiritual conversations.
Prayer in group gives us the opportunity to reflect in our baptismal call to be a community of believers who learn, grow, and experience the Grace and love of God together. We support and care for each other and praying together, we discern in how we are carrying our cross in the world.
