All our quilts are donated to Orphan Grain Train or sold to members of our congregation. Right now we are a group of about 4-8 ladies. We tie quilts every Monday at 1:00 PM and close the day with coffee. Anyone is welcome to come tie, or finish the edges. We will begin again in September.

NAME BADGES—please continue to wear your name badges, which can be found next to your picture on either side of church. They help Pastor and Sonja, as well as any new members, get to know our names and faces. PLEASE put your badges back before leaving the church, so they will be here for every worship service you attend. Thank You!
