 Blanket Ministry Opportunity

During the next 2 months, we will be holding another homemade blanket drive.  This year our blankets will be going to the Salvation Army for their fire canteen (for fire victims) or for the homeless in our area.  You can crochet, knit, sew, quilt, or "no-sew" them.  The blankets can be any size or color since the Salvation Army serves infants through adults.   Your friends and family members are welcome to join in this project.  Finished blankets will be collected at OCCA on March 4th.  If you have any questions, please contact Michele Smith.
New 4 x 4 groups will start in February and go through May. There is a sign up at the information desk.  4 x 4's are a great time to get to know others in the church body. 4 families meet once a month for 4 months for fellowship.  Questions can be directed to Cristy McCandless. Please sign up by January 28th.
