Outreach Chair, Ann Eberle, will introduce Lea who will speak to us about the good works of this organization and the project selected for DOK’s February Outreach Day.

April 1 – Book Study, Being Disciples – Essentials of the Christian Life by The Right Reverend Rowan Williams, 104th Archbishop of Canterbury. In this book, Williams turns his attention to what is required for us to continue following Jesus and growing in faith.  The book has six succinct chapters:  Being Disciples; Faith, Hope, and Love; Forgiveness; Holiness; Faith in Society; and Life in the Spirit.

May 6 – Our Season Ends
We will end our year with Holy Eucharist and reflections.

“Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.  And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.“ Hebrews 10:24-25 NLT
