Donations can be dropped off in the baby bed located near the coat racks.

Sanctity of Life Ministries would love to receive some baby blankets for their clients again this year. Please bring your creations to the Church Office by November 22, for delivery before Thanksgiving.
A good baby blanket should be 3 to 4 feet wide by 3 to 4 feet long and knit or crocheted fairly tightly so that little fingers won’t get caught between the stitches. Thanks for your participation!

Since Jan 2012 our ministry has undergone many new changes. Not only do we knit, we now have people who crochet, cross-stitch and do other needlecrafts to support our ministry. These changes allow our ministry to meet the goals and projects of our church, both on going and new ones for each of us. We continue to bring together members of our church and others who wish to learn or have experience knitting and crocheting or any other hand crafts which benefit our church family and neighbors.
Our projects have included creating chemo hats for the local cancer treatment center, confirmation crosses, baby blankets for both our new babies born to church family members as well as donations to local hospitals. We also furnish the Healing Services with cross-stitched crosses for our Pastors to distribute during this service. During the churches semi-annual Flea Market, our ministry has a table set up in the Boutique area next to the Jewelry table where we have many different items for sale.
Our main on-going project is to provide prayer shawls for those who are experiencing distress or going through a difficult time and need reminding of how much God loves them. Each shawl is prayed over by our members, our church members and our Pastors.
We meet for fellowship each Thursday evening at 6:30 in room 200. We have on-going classes, both knitting and crocheting, during this time as well. This gives newcomers or beginners the opportunity to learn with those who have experience. Our beginning class created many beauty crocheted baby blankets this past year. All levels of skill are welcome to join us and if you find you cannot make it, you are encouraged to continue to work at home. You can choose which project you want to participate in as your time schedule permits. We understand if you can’t and love it when you can.
