     Hope’s Prayer Shawl Ministry is looking for people to Knit or Crochet prayer shawls to be given out in times of distress to members of our congregation.  Even if you’re a beginner, the patterns are not difficult to follow and all yarn is provided.  An organizational meeting will take place on Thursday, May 13th at 9:30 AM in Hope’s Fellowship Hall for all interested.  Contact Mary Johnson (612-751-8227) or Ardyce Pederson (218-639-5936) if you have any questions.  Please lend your talents to this wonderful ministry.


Blanket Blessing Sunday, May 9th

Join us for 8:30 worship on Sunday, May 9th  when the labors of love created by many busy hands will be on display. Dozens of homemade quilts, prayer shawls and fleece blankets have been created to be given to those in need.  We pray for God’s blessing on those who receive them, as well as those who make them.


HOPE CRAFTERS resume meeting on Tuesdays in the Fellowship Hall at 9am beginning May 4. We welcome anyone with any level of skills for making crafts or sharing craft ideas. All supplies are furnished. Although there will not be a typical Christmas in July this year, we plan to hold a sale later in the summer.


HELP MAKE GREETING CARDS as a fundraiser for the Women of Hope.  Meet on Tuesday mornings in the Fellowship Hall, beginning at 9:00 a.m.  Greeting cards for all occasions are available for $2 each near the church office.  We have graduation cards!
