For it was you who formed  my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s  womb. I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Wonderful are your works; that I know very well. Psalm 139:13 – 14  (NRSV)

Sheltering Arms provides an opportunity to use your creative talents for the glory of God and in mission for others. We gather in fellowship over knitting, crocheting and sewing. Our projects include prayer shawls, new baby quilts and blankets, baby hats for Pinnacle Health, Knit for Kids sweaters, scarves, mittens and hats, plarn sleeping mats for the homeless, Feminine Hygiene Kits and baby sweaters for Mission Central and more! Beginners to experts, all are welcome to join us on Thursday afternoons from 1–3pm in the Fireside Room.

 

Ideas for prayer are shared from Sheltering Arms for each day of October. Feel free to add additional prayers that come to your mind and heart for people and situations in our local church, The United Methodist Church, the global church, and the wider world.
