Blanket Project

Children’s Sunday School Schedule. 

Blankets are being made for children in foster care.  The local foster care system distributes 100 blankets a month. Our group will create no-sew blankets that can be made in one night and delivered to the Child Advocate Center on Franklin St. with tags that say "This blanket belongs to: _________" and the child will be able to write there name on it.  This way they will always be able to have at least one thing that is their own. We meet the third Thursday of each month  (next date is January 17th)  from 6-8 at the church.  Contact Lisa ( for more details. Donated complete blankets are also welcome.
