Ministry of the Month
During the year, we focus on one program or ministry opportunity each month. The focus may be for a specific need locally, nationally or world-wide. A craft fair each year helps with the fundraising for these ministries. We look forward to seeing how these different opportunities might open up our eyes to God’s mission in the world. Check the calendar for this month’s ministry opportunity.
The Ministry of the Month for January will be the Redeemer Quilters Group. They can use donations of batting, cotton materials, thread, yarn, or cash for mailing the quilts or purchasing materials. The majority of the quilts they make are sent each year to the Lutheran World Relief foundation; however, some are given to high school graduates, local foster kids, or needy families in Horseshoe Bend. Last year they made over 100 quilts that were sent out! Our goal is to raise at least $250.00 this month! If you would like to write a check, just put MoM in the memo line.
Update November 2019
In November, the congregation donated $200.00 for the ministry of the month which was for needy families at South Junior High. With this money, we were able to purchase eight $25.00 gift cards from Walmart to give to Kelly Anne Kuntz, the principal, who will give these out before Christmas. She was so thankful for our generosity!
Check out the monthly quilt in the Fellowship Hall. Each month a recently made quilt will be on display for your enjoyment and appreciation of the dedicated work of the women who quilt each week, fifty weeks a year. Let’s enjoy their quilts every week, not just on quilt Sunday. Remember, if you have no longer used flat sheets, material, thread, or batting it can be donated to the quilters and placed in the basket under the quilt.
