Quilting for a Purpose

QUILTER’S CORNER

Join us for quilting Wednesdays, anytime between 8am—2pm!

No experience in quilting, crafting or sewing is needed. We could use help tying off quilts at the end, and packing them as well.

Being a part of quilting for Lutheran World Relief  is a great way to fellowship with other ladies in the church, enjoy coffeetime and lunch together, and be a part of sending quilts to people who’s lives have been touched by poverty, war, or natural disasters – internationally as well as in America. We create approx. 300-350  quilts annually at Our Savior’s Lutheran, and you are invited to be a part of this important ministry. Join us~

WELCA

“WELCA”  Women of the ELCA – We are a group of ladies that love to share our interests and ideas about life with each other, and share the love of Christ with the outside world around us. Our circle groups are involved with many service projects,  such as, creating newborn kits, school backpack kits, camperships for youth at Camp Vermilion, quilting, prayer shawls, hospital care kits, etc. If you attend the church, you are considered a member, and can join in the meetings and devotion times whenever you are able, and take part in whatever projects you feel called to do. We invite you to join us and share your ideas!
