The Quilting Ministry is a passionate group of folks that, over the years, has sent thousands of quilts, baby bundles and sewing kits overseas through Canadian Lutheran World Relief to people who are in need. Many quilts are also provided to local community charities.
The Prayer Shawl Ministry is an active, on-going ministry providing shawls to those who are ill or recovering from an illness, those who may be grieving, who are going through a difficult time, or who may be celebrating a marriage, anniversary, or the birth of a baby. Please see the display in our “Fireside Room” where you will find instructions on how to obtain a prayer shawl or wool and instructions to knit one for someone else! There is no price attached to the shawls.
Collecting We Care backpacks (filled with children’s school and hygiene supplies) has been a ministry at Our Savior’s for several years. Beginning a couple of months coming up to the celebration of Christmas, we collect and send back packs annually to Canadian Lutheran World Relief to be distributed to school-aged children in need overseas.
