Here is a list of what we are collecting:

Scissors for cutting material
Seam ripper
Measuring tape – cm/inch
Pins- preferable quilting pins
Tracing wheel
Marking pen or pencil
Thread – black and white

There are examples of what we are collecting on the table by the office door. All items should be new and unused. Thank you for participating in the project!

WILLING BUT WORRIED: How To Tell Others About Jesus Like You’ve Always Wanted To With Abe & Jordyn Skacel

August 7th        August 14th            August 21st

8:45am-9:45am – Fellowship Hall

We know that Christians should be telling others the Good News about Jesus, but how? What does it look like? How do I bring it up? How do I bridge the awkwardness? What if they ask a question I don’t know the answer to? This special “pop-up” class will address these questions and more. Join us for 3 weeks of practical, interactive training on not just the “why” of everyday evangelism but also the “how”.

*Classes build on one another but are designed so that you can take part in any class you can attend.


  • Childcare can be provided.
  • Sign-up for childcare as soon as you know that you will be coming by filling out the online form in the Lanse Link or on the small bulletin board in the foyer
