Mission Servants Activity of the Month
Knit a Stocking Cap for those in Need
Do you know how to knit? There are so many people that need stocking caps.
- Nurseries in your local hospitals for newborns
- Cancer patients
- Poor in this country and around the world
Oh, you are saying, “but I don’t knit”. There are inexpensive knitting loom kits available for purchase at many craft stores that offers looms in four different sizes, so caps could be made to fit everyone from newborns to adults!
The looms are easy to use, caps are quick to complete and economical, too. A few brands that carry these looms are Boye, Darice and Knitter. There are other brands, too.
This project could be done as an individual or with your ladies group. Completed stocking caps could go to hospitals, homeless shelters, or to mission organizations. Wherever they go, you are sharing God’s love, His warmth, and His comfort! Thrivent Action Team cards are a great financial resource for looms and yarn, too! HAPPY KNITTING!
St Peter’s Church in Deshler, Nebraska put out a request for people to donate their unused bicycles to be given to Orphan Grain Train, “Don’t Leave Your Bikes in the Shed”. People generously gave, whether it was the gift of a bike, or the gift of a talent from God, their gifts overflowed. This project collected 48 bikes for Orphan Grain Train! They also had volunteers to make necessary repairs, to transport the bikes, and volunteers who knew where the bikes were needed! To God be the glory!
