Dorcas Ministry

What Is Dorcas?

“In Joppa there was a disciple named Dorcas; she was always doing good and helping the poor.”    – Acts 9:36

This verse sums up the servant attitude that is at the heart of the Dorcas Ministry. Groups of people, young and seasoned, are coming together to minister to the hurting people of this world. They are all putting their talents for sewing to good use by creating shorts, dresses, diapers, blankets, etc. These handmade items are then included in shipments to missionaries, hospitals, orphanages and churches around the world. Plus, many of them fill our MAGI boxes!

Groups organize themselves differently. Some meet once a week and sew together, others sew together once a month, others sew at home and meet once a month to bring everything together. All of these are great ways to start a sewing ministry. If you don’t have a group, no problem! Some of our folks sew individually.
