On Sunday, Jan. 28, following 10:30 worship, there will be a brief Charge Conference to approve the 2018 budget and officers. The Executive Council will meet in the Library following the Charge Conference.
Crafts for a Cause has a mountain of fleece, flannel and cotton ready to be transformed into pillows, blankets, dolls and dresses during the coming year. We’ll have work sessions on alternating Monday nights from 7 to 8:30 in Room 124 on: Feb. 5 & 19, March 5 & 19.
Most of the comfort items go to Fair Oaks Hospital and local family shelters; the dresses and dolls (a fun new project) go to needy girls in Uganda. All adults are welcome to the work sessions, even if you’re not particularly crafty. Many hands make quick work! And if you can’t make the work sessions, ask about our homework projects.
We closed out the Holiday Bazaar in December with more than $4,000 in sales. After putting aside the funds needed to buy our supplies this year, we will be able to support Trinity’s missions in Honduras, the Art for Humanity ministry, and other worthy causes chosen by the Crafters. Thank you for your support!
