Manna Meals is a new program to make it easier for us to deliver home cooked meals to people in our community who are in need of some special care. We gather in groups every couple of months to assemble meals and bake some sweet treats. Then we freeze them and they are readily available for volunteers to deliver to families. If you are interested in being on a team, baking cookies, delivering meals, or helping out in various roles, Contact Kim Schaeferle! Thank you!
The FoC Quilting Ministry makes quilts for Lutheran World Relief and various Veterans programs. Tying quilts only, no sewing is required. Help is always welcomed and appreciated! Join the fun for a couple of hours every other Friday afternoon, starting at 1 PM (Summers and December off). Oh, and there are other ways to help such as sewing squares together at home, sharpening scissors, or delivering quilts to the LWR warehouse twice a year. For further information, contact Lynne Merrick at 952-937-8014.
Want to Help Make the Prayer Shawls?
In the cold, dark nights of winter, would you like to learn how to knit or crochet? It is very comforting and satisfying to pray and serve others by making prayer shawls for people. We would love to teach you. If you already know how or would like to learn how to crochet or knit, and would like to join us making prayer shawls, please contact Melanie Wegner or join us on Fridays at 11:15am in the church youth room. Newcomers are always welcome!
Know Someone Who Could Benefit from a Prayer Shawl?
The Prayer Shawl Ministry makes prayer shawls for anyone in need of some warmth and comfort, or anyone having a difficult time in their lives. Please let Melanie Wegner know if you have an idea of someone who could use a prayer shawl. She would be happy to wrap one up and deliver it.
