Pender’s Military Ministry would like to provide handmade scarves to Operation Gratitude for shipment to service members overseas. Scarves should be in neutral/subdued colors and deposited into the camouflage box in the Narthex by Nov. 1st.

We also want to provide lap afghans to veterans who are patients at the Veteran’s Hospital in Richmond. Christmas colors/patriotic colors are requested and lap afghans should be placed in the camouflage box by Nov. 29th.

Thank you!

Thanks to all who graciously knitted and crocheted scarves for our deployed military service members.

What a blessing these will be to the service members who will receive them in holiday care packages (sent out via Operation Gratitude at the end of this month).
