WEDNESDAY BIBLE STUDY - There will be no Bible study April 17th & 24th. We will start a new Bible study in May.
CHILDREN’S PILLOWCASE PROJECT - Dinosaurs, Ninja Turtles, Paw Patrols, hearts and flowers, fish and dolphins, planets and stars that’s just a few of the variety of creatures and creation that you’d see, if you looked in the boxes of pillowcases being shipped to St. Jude’s Episcopal Mission in Ocean View, Hawaii. Low’s Women of the ELCA have spent 2019 ironing, cutting, pinning, sewing and pressing pillowcases to help Pastor Constance reach her goal of 150 pillowcases for homeless and underserved children in rural and lava ravished areas of the Big Island of Hawaii. So far, 52 pillow cases have been completed, 33 pillowcases are in various stages of being sewn together, and 20 sets of pillowcase piecey-parts are awaiting pressing and pinning. In April, members of Alamance Lutheran Church will begin helping with the project, as well. Our next sewing party will be at Alamance Lutheran Church, who will be donating fabric and sewing labor as they join in the effort. So far the women of Low’s have put in at least 8 hours of monthly meeting time on this project for homeless children. Pastor Constance sends out yards and yards of thanks to all those who have contributed fabric, sweat labor (mostly ironing), cutting, assembling, and sewing time to this project. Just 45 more pillowcases to go!!!
