Wrapped In Love/Bedroll Ministry
Saturday, Sept. 21, 9am-12pm

Wrapped In Love/Bedroll ministry is hosting a "plarn" making event on Saturday, September 21st in the Asbury Room from 9 am to 12 pm. We have a plethora of plastic bags all over the church that need to be prepped into "plarn" so we can make them into bedrolls. Come spend a couple of hours as we cut up plastic bags into strips and connect them to make the plarn.  
Please note:  We are good on stock of plastic bags for now, please hold off on donating them until further notice. We thank you very much for participating and look forward to spending some time with you on the 21st of September.
