WOMEN

Leading women in a wider and growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

KNIT WITS UNDER RECONSTRUCTION…This group of knitters/crocheters met in the Parlor on Wednesdays from 6-8pm through December, 2017. Their long-time leader/coordinator, Barb Beverly, has had to step down and so they are looking for someone to act as point person.  Fortunately, prayer shawls, continue to be crafted at home by numerous volunteers.  As available, the shawls are placed on a quilt rack just inside the office suite.  We are blessed to be able to continue offering Prayer Shawls and hopeful that our home-crafters will keep the supply coming.

Anyone interested in coordinating this group should contact, Janice Cagle, jcagle@vbumc.org, 428-7727.

Why would you want to get involved?  Here’s what our Knit Wits are saying :

  • Has given me a whole new appreciation for “praying without ceasing” as we pray before, after, and silently as we craft regardless of where we are.
  • Knitting is way of expressing my creative side as I select yarns and patterns.
  • Sharing in persons’ stories of pain and sadness and seeing their expressions as they receive their shawl has become a very precious blessing.
  • Knit Wits provides a purpose for my love of knitting & an outlet for items I knit in the form of a ministry to others.
  • Attending the meetings is a peaceful end to a busy day among other women who have become wonderful friends.

The vision of the Knit-Wit’s is to be the hands of Jesus:  “The yarn forms the stitches, the knitting forges the friendships, the craft links the generations and prayer weaves Christ’s love…thus our hands become Jesus’ hands.”

The mission is to prayerfully knit or crochet items to comfort and warm others. Projects include prayer shawls for those experiencing joy or sadness and Lamb’s Wool Sweaters for children age infant to 5 year in developing countries.
