We planted the garden at the corner of 250 and Plank Road this morning. Thanks to everyone who helped out today, it looks great!
Thank you to everyone who walked or donated to the Crop Hunger Walk. 61 people participated in the Walworth CROP Hunger Walk on Sunday. Funds turned in so far total $2627 with more coming in.
Today in confirmation class the students created a labyrinth in our basement! Deacon Sharon taught us a bit about the history of labyrinths, and marked where we would make ours, and then the kids went to work. They even wrote some of their favorite Bible verses along the path. Come and taken advantage of this ancient prayer form. This coming Wednesday (Mar. 12, 6pm) at St. Martin, we will learn about the history and use of labyrinths, and then create a similar one to this in St. Martin’s sanctuary. These will be up all during Lent, as we continue to learn about different forms of prayer.
Several ladies came in at two different times this week to make fleece hats that will stuff Christmas stockings for needy kids in our community at Christmastime. This is a joint project with St. Martin Lutheran Church. Last year our goal was to stuff 150 stockings – this year we are aiming for 300! After our day of sewing this week, we ended up with 43 hats. Nice work, ladies!
A good sized group gathered after worship today to start painting the new nursery and the youth room, and then eat some pizza. More work is to be done, but we are well underway. Be sure to join us next week for our “Stock the Nursery Shower.” Check the September newsletter for details about where we are registered.
