Quilters and Sewers Needed!


The quilting group would like to invite you to join them at:

1:00 pm on Wednesday afternoons.

If you like to sew, make things with your hands, or just be helpful, the quilters need you. They make quilts for the confirmands and quilts to donate overseas. Come in and have some fun creating with this wonderful group.

Do you hear Jesus speaking to you about teaching Sunday or Wednesday classes? Serving in this way is such a blessing to the children, our church, and may be what the Lord has called you to do. Please see Diana Leipold if you wish to teach. God’s blessings to all of you!
