Jr. DOK Retreat
Girls of Grace JDOK Retreat – January 11-13, 2019
Attention JDOK Directresses and DOK leaders! We are so excited about the upcoming JDOK Retreat to be held January 11-13, 2019 at Camp Allen – Campsite #3 in Navasota! Adding a Wizard of Oz twist to our retreat, we will be exploring Biblical virtues such as loyalty, love and wisdom as well as learning about the daily discipline of prayers, devotions and service. The Reverend Beth Fain of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church will serve as chaplain and guide to the girls in their prayer walk. The Reverend Mark Brown, CEO of West Houston Assistance Ministries (WHAM) and father of two JDOK girls, will invite the girls to embrace an active call to Christian service. Additionally, we will play games, sing songs, as well as make crafts and care bags for children who visit WHAM.
In addition to chapter members, consider inviting girls who might be interested in joining JDOK or are in need of some Godly TLC. There are a limited number of scholarships available for early registrants. The retreat costs $30 per girl and registration is limited to the first 80 girls.
Adult volunteers are needed as well. While we do not charge for adult volunteers, we ask that adults consider making a donation towards their cost. Suggested donations can be found on the registration forms.
Registration ends and payment is due by October 30, 2018. Please mail all forms and ONE check for your group to St. Mary’s Episcopal Church 14412 N. Eldridge, Cypress, Texas 77429. You can find registration forms on our JDOK Directresses – Diocese of Texas Facebook group or at www.holytrinityjdok.weebly.com under the Girls of Grace section. Also, check with your church as registration packets will be mailed out to each JDOK chapter within the Diocese of Texas the week of July 24th.
But wait! You may think that all of this sounds great, but you don’t have a JDOK Chapter. Please consider inviting girls from your parish to come and check JDOK out. This retreat may be just what your DOK chapter needs to get a JDOK chapter going!
