Living in the Presence, or LIP, meets every Tuesday afternoon from 1:30pm until 3:00pm in the Choir Room.
In 2012 the group began from one man’s yearning to know how to “be” in God’s presence; what did it feel like, how do you do it, etc. A group of dedicated men and women gather weekly to share their adventures of life with God, family, prayer, and study materials that strengthen our connections to God and each other. We welcome anyone to join us in our journey. Everything we share in this group is held in confidence. Perhaps God is calling you to explore more about your heart’s journey with Him in community.

The Order of the Daughters of the King®*
The Order of the Daughters of the King®* is a National and International Order that differs from other women’s organizations by the vows of Prayer, Service and Evangelism we make to God, before our congregation, during a Service of Admission. Fourteen women were the inaugural members of the St. Gabriel Chapter instituted November 7th, 1967. We had a magnificent celebration to mark our 50th Anniversary. December 2004 a Junior Daughter Chapter, the Dove Chapter, was formed for girls of the congregation and their friends, but has since closed.
St. Gabriel Chapter members affectionately refer to themselves as “DOK”. Women, and girls, curious about The Order* begin a 3-month discernment and education process before being admitted. We faithfully wear the Cross of The Order daily as a symbol of our vows. All prayer requests are confidential, shared only with each Daughter that we may pray for the cares and concerns of others and ourselves. You will find us serving wherever God places us, but particularly for the needs of our Rector and Parish. At every opportunity, we share what Jesus has done in our lives.
Our Chapter members number 24, range in age from 24 to 93 years old (including one set of twins), and one Daughter was admitted in 1986 – 35 years ago.
