Sewing Seeds Through the Dorcas Ministry
Posted by HHI Webmaster on October 7, 2011

The Dorcas Ministry at Healing Hands International is growing like crazy! New groups are getting started at many area congregations including Leoma, Hendersonville and Willow Avenue to name a few. In August of this year we hosted our first ever Dorcas Workshop in Nashville and it was a resounding success! More then 90 ladies joined us from 33 different congregations across Tennessee, Alabama and Kentucky! We were thrilled to have such an amazing group of women eager to learn and share ideas for the Dorcas Ministry. We hope everyone who attended came away with new patterns, new friendships and a renewed desire to continue and grow their own Dorcas groups.


This event could not have taken place without all the help from our volunteers. Ladies stepped up and led our groups, gathered patterns for us, put folders together, picked up and prepared food and helped with check-in. Thank you! A special thank you is extended to the gentlemen who were drivers for so many of our attendees. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization and we are so thankful for you!


We had such a remarkable response from everyone that attended this year's workshop that we are already in the planning stages to host another one in Nashville next spring. We hope you will help us spread the word among churches and friends. Please tell anyone interested in coming to please contact us at (615) 832-2000 or they may email me at
