Dorcas is Alive. Acts 9:36-41. "Now there was at Jorpa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas. This woman was full of good works and alms deeds which she did ... and he gave her his hand, and lifted her up and when he had called the saints and the widows presented her alive ..."
When Tabitha, also known as Dorcas died, those who had been touched by her ministry wept and called up or the Lord's intervention because they had depended so much on her support ministry. Those were the needy and underprivileged among the congregation of the Acts of the Apostles.
It was out of this that Peter called Dorcas back to life, that she may continue to do good to the needy in the congregation.
This is the background under which JCC Dorcas Ministry operates from. It is a care ministry founded in compassion of Christ to care for the needy in our congregation. Jesus said, the poor will always be with us. Adn the Word says, he who ignores the poor, God will not answer his prayer. Hence we cannot ignore the poor in our midst.
The Dorcas Ministry has ensured that our congregation does not get the chance to ignore the poor. They want us to be blessed by lending unto them.
The Dorcas Ministry has been carrying the burden to educate several orphaned children, besides feeding and clothing other needy people in the church.
This is one of the ministries that is very much alive at JCC. There call is that many brethren will be touched to come forth in support of caring for the ministry. Dorcas is alive.
