"The Church Doors Might be Closed, but the
Windows of Heaven are Wide Open!"
2020 Dorcas program 2021
Washington Conference Branch • Sunday, November 29, 2020 • Women's Missionary Society
In 1816, the African Methodist Episcopal Church was organized under the leadership of Richard Allen. The first Missionary activities with the women began with the organizing of the Dorcas Society by Richard Allen in 1824. They worked together caring for the ministers who were helping to establish the A. M. E. Church. Sarah Allen organized the Daughters of the Conference to sew, mend, and patch coats, pants and underwear and raise money so that the pastors, with their tattered clothes, might be presentable at the opening of the Conference, after having traveled and worked hard during the year.
