Stitches of Love Quilting Ministry

Tuesdays, 10:00am - 3:00pm (ongoing)

Room LC 210

"She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands." - Proverbs 31:13

Women of all ages who enjoy quilting come together in fellowship for learning, sharing experiences, working on their quilts and working on quilts that will be donated as an outreach to those beyond our walls.

Gifts of handmade quilts wrap people in God's love and symbolically demonstrate that Jesus and His disciples care; the quilts represent the ultimate security blanket. This ministry has given quilts to high school graduates from South Texas Children’s Home, local crisis pregnancy centers, and kidney dialysis patients.

If you would like to get involved with this ministry, contact Donna Bennett.

Announcement from Stitches of Love! We will be selling our cookbook, for a donation of $12, to raise money for charitable projects. The cookbooks will make a great Christmas gift for anyone. Please stop by our table in Fellowship Hall between and after services on Sunday morning. We will have a tasty treat for you.

 

Upcoming Mission Trips

Dominican Republic Teacher/Orphanage Trip

July 2017

The UBC women are looking forward to returning to the Dominican Republic to continue our work with South Texas Children's Home Ministries in 2017. This year our team of elementary and secondary teachers will put on two conferences for Christian teachers of underprivileged children. We hope to provide encouragement, training, and needed instructional materials for all who attend. The trip will cost $1,500.00; this includes food, transportation, and housing. If you are interested in joining the team, please email Kymberlee Allen.
