Messiah Comforters

Meets:  Tuesday morning beginning at 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall
Coordinator:  Annette Joens
The Comforters is a group making comforters, lap robes and prayer shawls for others.

Much of the work is done to support Lutheran World Relief’s Mission Quilt ministry  but also to others in need of a warm blanket, a lap robe or a prayer shawl.

Anyone can become a comfort maker or lap robe maker. It is not necessary to know how to sew. We can find a spot for anyone. Prayer shawls are crocheted.    Volunteers can come and help as for as little or as long as you like on Tuesday morning.
