The Wednesday DOK group will meet April 8 at 10:30 AM in the conference room to continue our discussion about who we are as Daughters of the King in a mindful church such as Grace. How can we serve?

The group will complete a questionnaire for “Finding your Effective Ministry at Home, Work and Church”  led by Jenny Massey. Beginning in June we will be meeting together for the summer so maybe we can share our findings and bring the group more in community.
