HAITI JEWELRY FOR SALE
The Women's Ministry will be selling jewelry made by the Haitians during the month of November only. This jewelry is beautifully made from donated cereal boxes and plaques are made from oil drums. All monies go to help the Haitian people who are still coping with the damage to their homes as a result of an earthquake several years ago. Many parents had to put their children in orphanages to be cared for as their homes were destroyed. The Haitians make jewelry to make monies to eventually provide a home so they can retrieve their children from the orphanages. Many times, the parents can only take the number of children they can support and often have to take them to work with them. The Women's Ministry supports this worthwhile mission every two years. Jewelry will be sold after church in the church library. This is a good time to be buying a unique gift for Christmas as well as contributing to a worthwhile cause. Thanks!
NOTE: We are proud to announce that $967 was collected from the selling of the Haitian Jewelry. This total will be sent to Haiti offices to be used to pay the Haitian workers and makers of this beautiful jewelry. Many thanks to all who supported this mission and contributed cereal boxes as well!
FLEECE TIE BLANKET MISSION
The Women’s Ministry will be tying fleece blankets to be distributed to local ministries at a later date to be announced. If you can tie a knot, you’re the person we need and you are encouraged to come and lend a hand. We have nine blankets that will be cut ahead of time and will be ready to be tied. We can have several people working on each blanket at the same time which makes it easy and a lot of fun. It’s a great ministry to be involved in and a wonderful way to enjoy fellowship with one another.
The date November 23rd at 9:30 a.m. was set to meet to tie the blankets. All the church women were invited to come and participate. We had nine blankets this year to tie.
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!! Our ladies ended up tying 11 blankets this year and they will be distributed to WIC here in our own town. They will be thrilled to receive these wonderful blankets. Thank you!
