No sewing or quilting experience necessary! Join us for fellowship and a sense of purpose as we create simple quilts for Lutheran World Relief. Quilts go to women, men and children who have been forced to flee their homes around the world--whether from war, famine or natural disaster. Come to work, or just for the company. If you have old sheets, blankets, or fabric pieces you'd like to donate, you can bring those too.
The Glen Ellyn Food Pantry has been located in our church for almost 40 years, and now serves over 750,000 pounds of fresh, nutritions food to 32,000 individuals annually. Find out more about volunteer opportunities, and how your dollars can help, at GlenEllynFoodPantry.org.
Pill Bottle Ministry
Prescription pill bottles often can't be recycled. So we collect them, remove the labels, wash and air-dry them, and provide them to a service that uses them as packing material to protect used medical equipment being shipped to clinics in developing countries. When they arrive, they can be used to dispense medications--which otherwise might go out wrapped only in a fold of paper. Interested in helping out? Contact the church office and we'll put you in touch with Mark, our project coordinator. (This project also qualifies for Community Service hours.)
Meets Tuesdays from 1:00-3:00 upstairs in the Great Room.
A friendly group of about 20 women who gather to knit or crochet hats, scarves, mittens, afghans, or sweaters for people in need.
