Board Games Wanted

in teaching numbers, colors, math skills, etc., and some will be given to the families. Thank you very much!
Prayer Shawl Ministry
If you are a knitter, you are invited to become part of a Prayer Shawl Ministry for the benefit of those
on our prayer list and for a mission project. You would be doing this on your own time and at your
convenience. The pattern is very simple, and as shawls are completed, they are blessed by the
pastor and then distributed. For more information, please contact Jo Fenske.
