"Not Just Going to Church, but BEING the Church"
Crafting Through God's Love
The Crafting Through God’s Love Group provides a common thread between the participants’ love of creating and desire to help those in our local and worldwide communities. The group works either on a community service project of their choice or a personal project each month as they enjoy the fellowship of the other participants.
The craft group has used their talents to create the following items for charity: preemie hats and blankets for the local NIC Unit at Mercer Hospital; afghans for Lutheran World Relief; baby items for HomeFront's first time, single, homeless mothers’ group house; hats and lapghans for cancer patients at St. Francis Hospital; and scarves for Special Olympics participants. All items are taken into church quarterly for a blessing before being distributed to the appropriate charities.
Whether you knit, crochet, knifty knit, needlepoint, cross stitch, embroider, quilt, sew or none of the above there is a place for you in this group. Any person with any level of ability is welcome, and those with no experience at all but a desire to help can come and learn.
Join us each month on the second Saturday from 11 am to 2 pm and the fourth Sunday from Noon to 2 pm as we make items together for ourselves and others. For more information or for donations of items or supplies please contact the church or call Kristine Andrejco at 609-393-4939.
NOTE: During summer worship hours, the Craft Group will meet from 11 am to 1 pm.
