Mats for Homeless – Wednesday 28th September

screenshot-2016-09-25-20-11-29This Wednesday at 7:00 PM – be in the Fellowship hall to learn how to make mats for the homeless – out of used grocery bags.

Yes that’s right; that mat Bob is holding is actually made from dozens of cleverly woven used grocery bags.  No kidding.

So go to that drawer you have in the kitchen that is positively bursting with used grocery bags, and gather them up, along with your scissors, cutting wheels or whatever you’ve got and come on down. You’ll have fun learning how to make a mat that will protect a homeless person from the the harsh, cold ground this winter.  As Bob says, we may not be able to do everything for the homeless, but we can do something – and this is certainly something.

See you there Brothers and Sisters.

VBS Rocks

WeWCOC 2016 011 (1)ll VBS certainly does rock, but what you’re seeing here is rocks of a different kind.  You may have heard that this year’s theme for Vacation Bible School is ‘David, a man after God’s own heart’.  And when we think of David, it’s hard not to think of Goliath and his fall at the hands of this remarkable young man.

This week the Ladies Ministry got together and made very creative use of some leftover paint and paper bags in order to create some rather excellent looking rocks.  It’s all part of the VBS preparations and as you can see, fun is already being had by everyone; and VBS is still over a month away.  This is just one of many things the ladies are doing to make this years VBS a resounding success.  Contact Carolyn Martin to find our how you can help; and of course don’t forget; you can click on the VBS banner on this web site’s home page to sign up for this years VBS.  We’ll see you there.
