Do you like to sew? Could you help cut out fabric?
Do you knit or crochet?
Make Clothes for Infants in Need
Get out your sewing machines and help make as many simple infant gowns, hoodies, and diapers as possible for UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief). Beginning January 28, there will sewing kits ready to pick up in the “cold hall” near the church office entrance. Please take them home to sew and return the completed project to the church no later than March 4.
These items will be taken to the UMCOR depot in Salt Lake City to be included in relief kits and sent to families all over the world. Kits help sustain everyday life for people who lack ready access to essential supplies when a disaster strikes.
UMCOR Sewing Project
Members of St. John’s UMC Mission Team have organized sewing projects three times over recent years. Using mostly donated fabrics, volunteers have cut out and sewn school bags and simple layette items (baby gown, hoodies and diapers). Nearly 400 items have been completed. These were then taken to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) depot in Salt Lake City. From there, they will be added to “relief kits” which will be sent all over the world to those in need.
KNITTERS FOR PEACE - PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets the third Sunday of the month. Knitted or crocheted shawls, lap robes and baby blankets are given to those in need of the comfort and prayers that go into the making of the items. Acrylic yarn donations are always welcome.
