The sewing group will display a sample of the quilts they have made this year. The quilts will be on display in the church from November 1 through the 21.
Many hours have been spent cutting, sorting, stitching and creating these beautiful quilts. The quilters adhere to the guidelines set forth by LWR to ensure that every quilt is useful, consistent and fair.
LWR distributed its first quilts in 1945 to families in war-torn Europe following the Second World War. Within a decade, the ministry was reaching around the globe to villages far removed from the world’s attention. Today, an average of 300,000 quilts are lovingly given worldwide each year.
LWR Mission Quilts are highly regarded throughout the world because of their quality and consistency.
Remember to save your canceled stamps to help with shipping costs. Stamps may be put in the box on the table in the narthex under the bulletin board.
Gods Work... Our Hands!
Progress is being made on the new Community Garden at St. John's. Lori and Jeff Whalen, Paul Baker, and Don Anderson were hard at work Saturday morning when Debbie and I stopped by to feed the blessing box. I didn't think of snapping a picture until after we left, but then I braved the blustery weather and made it over there today (Sunday) with the camera.
During construction, I asked Don what the wire mesh frames were for and learned that it's to keep the giraffes out. Now... that's planning! Update note... This has been found to be a true statement, the giraffes have leeft the garden.
St. John's Raised Garden Beds Update
A BIG thank you to everyone who helped with the raised garden beds. They are planted and God has graciously been watering them for us.
We invite everyone who loves gardening to help us take care of the beds. When you are out for a walk or a drive, stop by and pull a few weeds, water if needed and eventually help pick all the vegetables that we will produce.
Garden art (pinwheels, gnomes, statues, etc.) are all welcome to add some color to the garden.
A bench has been placed near the gardens for meditation or just to relax and enjoy the view.
There is a Blessing Box located near the north entrance (Sunday School) on the north side of the church. This Blessing Box has food and other necessities those in need may need. There is also a small refridgerator near by.
Take what you need, Leave what you can, but above all, be Blessed <3
