About the Order/Trinity Chapter, Fayetteville, AR
The Order of the Daughters of the King® 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.
The Trinity Chapter service projects include:
- Supplying the church with prayer cards to add to the church and daughters prayer list.
- Keeping a basket of blankets and shawls in the narthex to be used by mothers with babies, individuals who are cold or just need to snuggle with something soft.
- Preparing Welcome bags.
- Encouraging the use of the UTO (United Thank Offering) boxes.
The Mission of the Order
The Mission of the Order is the extension of Christ’s Kingdom through
Prayer, Service and Evangelism.
Our Rule of Life
A rule of life is a self-imposed spiritual discipline practiced daily by an individual. It includes regular and seasonal devotions, both private and public, and is a commitment intelligently and prayerfully considered. A rule of life sets apart an order from other church organizations.
Members of The Order of the Daughters of the King® undertake a Rule of Life, incorporating the Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service. By reaffirmation of the promises made at Baptism and Confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself to a life-long program of Prayer, Service, and Evangelism, dedicated to the spread of Christ’s Kingdom and the strengthening of the spiritual life of her parish.
Each member’s personal Rule of Life reflects her unique spiritual journey. A Daughter’s Rule of Life is not taken lightly, but is developed prayerfully with God’s guidance. The Rule is not meant to be fixed, but flexible, and should be begun simply and reviewed regularly to accommodate her changing life circumstances and spiritual growth.
Most Daughters find that the discipline of a Rule of Life fosters a deeper relationship with Christ. The commitment made through our vows often serves as a catalyst that draws us closer to the heart of God – transforming our lives and leading us into more dedicated prayer and service for the sake of the One whose cross we wear.
