September's Work Day

Hope Quilters September meeting in pictures.

A few of the Ghana Altar Cloths ready to be labeled.  Karaan V is attaching the labels; they'll be ready for the next mission trip to Ghana.
I also have to add this from Pastor Sam on the Ghana Missions Facebook pages - ". . . From June 2012 through September 2013 GlobeServe have planted 117 Churches with majority of them in a place I was once not sure of success for Church Planting, Northern Ghana. Today over 8,000 new people have come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.   From September 16th through 27th we are going to baptize these new believers (currently am aware of 2,000 people and the figures keep growing, am expecting 3,000). . .   PRAISE GOD! !


Quilting in September.

September Work Day

Saturday, September 14th        8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.             Room 212

Bring a sack lunch and drink or you may also step out to one of the nearby restaurants.
Friday at 1:00 p.m. is “set-up time, bringing the fabrics, ironing boards, etc. from the storage area to Rm 212.

With Rally Day activities in Hope, the Church year begins anew as it does every fall.  School has started, summer activities begin to wind down.  It doesn’t seem like fall is upon us with the unusual high temperatures we’ve been having.  But the rooms are cool and we can enjoy getting together to catch up with each other and sharing our love of quilting.

Those who want to work on the altar cloths for Ghana are certainly encouraged to continue the effort.  Others who aren’t interested in that type of sewing are encouraged to come and work on quilt tops.  By meeting and working together, we’re living the Hope Quilters story – sharing in fellowship with each other, and making quilts for the missions of LCOH.  Last year we sent 16 quilts with the ASP team, provided more than 15 quilts to Mercy PICU, made 37 quilts for Okoboji’s Christopherhaus Dorm, and sent 14 quilts to Riverside for their quilt auction.  There were other missions that received quilts as well. 
What will we accomplish together in the 2013-2014 church year?
