Dorcas Ministry

Helping those in need one quilt at a time

Dorcas Ministry

The UCC Dorcas ministry makes quilts to give to the need families in Las Cruces, the USA, and around the world. The name comes from Acts 9 where a woman named Dorcas is mentioned as, "always doing good and helping the poor" by making garments.


The group meets on Wednesday afternoons and dedicate a number of their quilts to newborns. Please contact Lenora Bristol (575-496-1378) or Lexie Armstrong (573-489-8958) to get involved. More quilters are always welcome!


If you have a newborn or are expecting a newborn, please let us know so we can quilt your little one their very own quilt for free!
