  • Sit and S.O.W

    Come "Sit and S.O.W." with us. The craft projects vary just as the personalities vary, but there is sure consistency in attendance, relaxation, sharing, and great fellowship. A.C. Moore makes room for us to gather among the ribbons and flowers. Customers smile or inquire or visit with us. Each Tuesday at 11 a.m., we are there with our crochet hooks, knitting needles, or embroidery floss. Watching the process of a few stitches turn into a wearable or usable object is inspiring and amazing: creation right before our eyes. The ministry in fellowship, the ministry in producing needed items for others, the ministry of being available to others, and the ministry in using our gifts, …..all are ministries from the heart.

    Come "Sit and S.O.W." with us.  For more information please contact the office at (804) 272-5942.
