Have you ever wondered how Dorcas
House got its name?
“There was a believer in Joppa named
Tabitha (which in Greek is Dorcas). She was always doing
kind things for others and helping the poor…[the widows
showed Peter] the coats and other garments Dorcas had
made for them...the news raced through the whole town,
and many believed in the Lord.”
~~ Acts 9:36-42
When asked how the name came about,
Nan Blount said, “When we started thinking of a name she
came to mind and we liked it! So that has been it. “
The story of Dorcas in the Bible
reminds us of God's great love for all of His people.
Dorcas was not a great pastor, prophet, or evangelist,
but rather just a plain, everyday person like you and
me. However, she was not too unimportant for God to
providentially include the story of her good works and
charitable deeds in His holy Word.
Dorcas house continues Dorcas’s
tradition of ministering to others by sewing clothing
for children in Africa, quilts that warm women and
children in recovery, and purchasing sewing machines for
women in India.
Thank you Dorcas House Ladies! Many
believe in the Lord because of you!
