Craft Ministry Update

Last night I and another Crafters for Christ ministry member joined the First United Methodist Women’s group for a night of crafting. June, the women’s group president, had asked earlier this month for the Crafters to join the UMW in a hands-on service project. After some discussion, we decided Thinking of You cards was the way to go. The UMW will mail these cards to their members who are not shut-ins or live in nursing homes.

This card is an example of the Thinking of You cards, which are pre-cut and stacked in front of it.

It was a lot of fun watching the ladies assemble the pre-cut cards and get comfortable with their own creativity. I really hope they consider partnering with us again!

We also had some supplies to make bookmarks for the church’s Christmas Shoeboxes, which will be delivered to Samaritan’s Purse in November. After 31 cards were made, several of the women swarmed the bookmark table and had fun stamping out designs onto the cards and picking out matching thread.
