Helping Hands

We can provide home-cooked meals to people experiencing difficult times (death of a loved one, sudden illness, etc.) in their family.  The meals can take into account any dietary concerns the family may have.

Knitting and Crocheting Group

For those who crochet or knit.  As the shawls are made, the group prays that those receiving them will feel the care, prayers and love of God aided by the loving hands that prepare them.  Yarn may be provided if needed.  Prayer shawls are given to anyone who could use a warm hug.  If you are aware of a need please contact us; arrangements can be made to deliver shawls.
