CRAFTY PINS & NEEDLES — CRAFTING FOR MISSIONS group meets on Wednesday afternoons
Crafty Pins & Needles is actively and passionately involved in a variety of missions initiatives.
Did you know that last year this group knit 1156 toques all from donated yarn? We are wondering if you would like to get involved by donating yarn for us so we can continue to knit for missions.
If each family would buy one or more skeins (balls) of yarn, you would keep us busy for a very long time and we would be able to pass the toques along to those in need. You can pick whatever colours you want, we mostly use worsted weight yarn (it says it on the label) or if you forget the name, buy whatever you want. Cash donations could also be
given for the purchase of yarn (contact Lorraine Redekop).
We appreciate your involvement in our ministry in whatever way works best for you.
2019 toques were distributed as follows:
- 279 for Northern Canadian Evangelical Mission
- 130 for Cloth for Kids (Lighthouse, schools, Reserves, Immigrants)
- 187 for Faith Mission (Ukraine)
- 560 for Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes
We are also sewing dresses for a new orphanage that is opening up in Mozambique. This is through Beautiful Feet Ministries. They have a container leaving Saskatoon in March, and are asking for used English Bibles and used Commentaries for the pastors over there, also gently used or new twin size blankets, sheets. If you can help out with any of these items please contact Lorraine Redekop.
Our Church subscribes to RIGHT NOW MEDIA. This online video library is full of discipleship training, leadership training, video Bible studies, and a great kids video section.
Sign up at the Communication Center in the Lobby to receive your free subscription or connect with Pastor Aaron Dalman.
