Dorcas meets every Wednesday morning at 10:30am to discuss the fairs and other fundraising efforts. They gather together as friends and help one another on creative projects. This is a lovely place to begin to get to know the church, learn about crafting, and see what fundraising efforts are happening. A light lunch happens at noon.
The Holly Fair is November 27th from 10am to 2pm. It includes crafts for sale, wreaths, a cookie walk, raffles, and a center table raffle of goodies. Santa usually stops by for pictures with the children (young and old). Lunch begins at 10am (until 1pm).
The Village Fair is August 21th 10am to 2pm with a 5K kick off (walk/run/fun) at 8:30am. Feel free to stop by for music, fun, shopping, and more. If you are an artist or vendor and would like a table, please contact us.
The fair dates back to 1945 and was started when the Church was in need of funds for repairs to the building. It has been a continuous event ever since.
Keep your eyes peeled, for afternoon teas (annual MidWinter Tea takes place in February), Suppers, socials, classes, and more!! New events and dates are continuously posting!! Please let us know if you have ideas for new events; remember this is your Church and Meetinghouse and your input is important.
One of the best parts of Dorcas is their ‘adoption’ of a young Bolivian girl through the Child Fund International. We help to support her education and health. In return, we keep in touch with her through ongoing letters which can be found on the bulletin board in the hall.
The Dorcas Society is a charitable organization dating back to 1897. It was originally dedicated to making clothes for poor children but is now a multifaceted organization helping those who endure poverty. Church members regularly take part in projects such as quilting and fundraising to assist in this cause. A current project is the Church sponsoring a Bolivian girl named Allejandra Maria through the Dorcas Society.
“This woman [Dorcas] was full of good works and almsdeeds, which she did.” Act 9:36
