Lutheran World Relief Quilts
75 quilts were displayed in the Main Sanctuary on Palm Sunday before they got packed up to be shipped all over the world. A big "THANK YOU" to all who helped in ANY way creating the beautiful quilt display. Whether you are a sewer, pinner or a purchaser of much needed supplies, your efforts are very much appreciated!
Please continue to support this important mission. Look what we can do when we all work together! There will be donation baskets available for all who would like to keep this wonderful outreach project ongoing. God’s Work, Our Hands. We still need single bed flat sheets ($5.00 at Walmart) for our quilt backs (any color, except white) and continued donations for batting, etc.
