Missions Fair & Ministry Update

Join us this Sunday for our Missions Fair immediately following the morning worship.  We will be highlighting several ministries here at Foxworthy, including Creative Hands.  Come learn more about this exciting ministry that creates a variety of items that include Operation Christmas Child, Real Options Pregnancy Center, and our own church family. 

Several years ago we started a little ministry and called in Purls of Grace.  Ladies gathered together to knit and crochet, then we added a quilting and sewing aspect to it, and called it Stitches of Joy.  Yet there were still those who wanted to be a part of our ministry that didn't sew, knit or crochet, so we expanded again adding in more crafting ideas!  Within the last year we have done far more than just knitting a baby blanket or sewing up a simple tote bag we branched out to creating greeting cards, soap making, and putting together sewing kits!  However having three ministries under another name has gotten to be a be a bit confusing.   This summer we have melded all those ministries together and are now just simply "Creative Hands."  Throughout the upcoming year we will highlight different aspects of our ministry.  Currently our ladies are working on knitting & crocheting washclothes for our Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes.  For those that don't crochet or knit, we have soap making items, and simple hair items that don't require any sewing.   Check out our dates listed on the left hand side and consider joining us, we would love to have you!
