Morning Doves

President: Betty (Betsie) Barger-Hines

The "Doves" is the daytime women's organization of The First Presbyterian Church of Dickson, TN. We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 10 am in the Parish Hall. The first hour of our meeting is a Scripture Study Class, followed by a business meeting, ending with prayer requests for our families and others. We then adjourn to a local restaurant for lunch and fellowship. All women are welcome to join us for any part of this day's activities. If you can't spend three hours, just come for the "Scripture Study" @ 10:00 am.

The "Doves" contribute to the community in a number of ways!

We purchase, sign, and send cards to the sick, the bereaved, soldiers, our shut-ins, and others brought to our attention.

We choose a charity each month for cash donations, food, or needed items. We often invite and facilitate the congregation's participation.

We have made one time donations to people with specific missions, to the Presbyterian Disaster Relief Fund.

We have gathered to make quilts for patients at Sara Cannon Cancer Center.

We help coordinate, decorate, prepare food and do clean-up for church dinners, showers, funeral receptions, and the Dickson Ministerial Association's yearly Holy Week services. We give church replicas to those who grew up in our church and are now marrying. We give 1st Bibles to little ones being baptized. We give scholarships to graduating senior members as they go off to college or trade schools.

We take flowers at Christmas and Easter to the sick and our shut-ins; visiting and providing food and transportation when needed.

Our charities include: The Free Clinic, The Help Center, The Humane Society, CareNet, Meals on Wheels, Schools and First Presbyterian's Deacon's Fund for helping people in the Dickson community.

Women who are studying God's Word and helping in our church, and our community.
