PROJECT HOPE MEALS - Our church family has the opportunity to prepare a nice hot meal for the homeless at Project Hope, ;the 3rd Wed of each month. The sign up’s go out in advance via email and each person is asked to provide a part of making the meal for 40 people. This is also fun way to include the family or team up with a friend to prepare and/or share the cost. You can choose one of the following: Main course, bread, salad, vege, fruit, dessert and a driver. Donations also graciously accepted to assist someone who has the time prepare, but not the budget.

GRIEVING SHAWL MINISTRY - Care and the love of knitting (and crochet) have been combined into a prayerful ministry that reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace. Many blessings are knitted into every shawl. The knitter begins each shawl with prayers for the recipient. Prayers are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. When the shawl is completed, it is offered a final prayer before being sent along its way. Besides knit and crochet; the shawls can be woven, sewn, quilted or machine knitted.
