Little Dresses for Africa

“We plant the seeds; God will send the harvest.”

We participate with this organization to provide pillowcase dresses to little girls in Africa and beyond, sending hope and letting them know they are worthy individuals.  Many little girls in Africa are head-of-household and take care of younger siblings.  Some become victims of human trafficking.  By providing a dress made from a cotton pillowcase or a yard of fabric, we give them dignity.  Through this simple loving act, we make a difference in their lives.  In addition, each head-of-household receives a copy of the New Testament in their language. 

 

There are a number of ways you can participate.  Please contact Dot Johns.

Mosaic Prayer Square

An interfaith outreach ministry that combines the gift of prayer with the gift of a hand-tied quilt.  The purpose of Prayer Squares is to promote prayers through the use of mosaic quilts. “It’s not about the quilt; it’s all about the prayers.”  Each knot represents a prayer. These Prayer Squares Quilts are “comforters”, a statement of faith, and a testimony to our belief in God and in the power of prayer.

 

Meetings: Weekly, Sunday 10:00am

Where:  Grace Church- Shepherd Room
