On September 17th, we will have a local retreat. Every other year we gather in the Fall at a place that is not too far away so many of us can come and have a nice day together.
Ellen has graciously offered her house on Sep 17th to have a mini-retreat. We will work on Quilted Prayer shawls. We tied a few last year at our retreat and the ones that we have given out have been very well received. If you have 100% cotton material that you would like to donate for this project, please see Erie.
Of course, we will have a Bible study at the retreat as well. More details will follow in the September newsletter.
On December 3rd, it is time again to celebrate with our friends from churches in the area to welcome the Advent season. This year our theme will be Shepherds.
On March 3, 2012, we will give out another Martha Award. A recipient has been named. We are working on having a key note speaker come to gives us a lesson about a topic that is in relationship between the background of the recipient and our church.
Apart from quilted prayer shawls, I still knit them as well. If you have some yarn that you don’t use anymore , let me know so that we can see if it can be turned into a prayer shawl.
