Piece Makers Ministry - In September, we will begin a ministry to provide prayer shawls or quilts for adults or children in need of prayer and encouragement. These people may have experienced a trauma (such as a serious accident), a long-term illness requiring continuing treatment (such as cancer or kidney dialysis), an emotional crisis such as a tragic, unexpected loss, or a terminal illness.  People who enjoy crocheting, knitting or sewing are invited to participate in this ministry. Those interested will prayerfully complete projects at home and donate them. If you are interested there is a sign-up sheet in the pass-

 through. There will be an informational meeting between services August 28th on the stage in the Adult Sunday School room. Contacts: Jan Moeller - 605-890-0142 -, Ruth Angerhofer - 605-517-0409 -
