The Order of the Daughters of the King® (DOK) is an order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the historic episcopate but not in communion with it. Our membership currently includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches.
Our Anglican tradition:
· Recognizes episcopal (bishop's) oversight.
· Believes that Holy Scripture contains all things necessary for salvation.
· Acknowledges the gift of the Holy Spirit in Baptism, the real presence of our Lord in the Holy Eucharist, and worship according to The Book of Common Prayer (or the standard liturgies of Lutheran, Roman Catholic, or other Anglican churches that sponsor chapters).
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.
The Mission of The Order is the extension of Christ’s Kingdom through
Prayer, Service and Evangelism.
St Peters By the Sea Chapter of the Order of the Daughters of the King meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 5pm. We are currently beginning a study for new members.
Our ECW meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm in the Parish Hall.
The National Episcopal Church Women and its local groups are ministries of the Episcopal Church
Since 1871, the National Episcopal Church Women, ECW, have championed women’s rights and the Christian foundation of God and family. They are an affiliate of the Episcopal Church and celebrate that Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Their women’s ministry and children’s programs feed, educate, and provide community grants around the world. They are a volunteer organization that creates a legacy for Episcopal Church Women to lead future generations with stewardship in Christ.

Beckwith Breakfast is a scholarship program we started many years ago. One of our then Sunday school teachers stated that she wanted to ensure that every child at St. Peter's would have the opportunity to attend Camp Beckwith, regardless of their financial situation. We took the opportunity to teach the children how to work hard and cook as well. We have sent on average 10 campers on full scholarships since starting. Breakfast is on the 2nd Sunday of each month
This is a retreat weekend put together by volunteers from all over the diocese as a gift to you. The cost is covered by generous donations from the members of the Cursillo family. This weekend gives you a rare opportunity to spend three days away from the distractions of daily life listening to what God has to say to you. All your needs will be taken care of by the staff. Your job is to relax and have fun. If you ask people who have been before, they will tell you that it was a very postitive and God-filled experience. Many will tell you that it was a starting point for important changes in thier relationship with Christ. If you are interested in attending or want more information, please speak with Father David or Debbie Waldrop. You can also check out our Cursillo link under the resource tab. De Colores !!!I
Come join us on Wednesday mornings at 10 am for fellowship, learning and some laughs.
