O God, the protector of all who trust in you, without you nothing is strong, nothing is holy. Embrace us with your mercy, that with you as our ruler and guide, we may live through what is temporary without losing what is eternal, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
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 from 6-8 at the church. Contact Lisa (email@example.com) for more details. To date we’ve donated (and have still at church) roughly 250 blankets.
