LIFE LESSONS FROM AN ITALIAN PRAYER WARRIOR – SEPTEMBER 14TH 6:00 PM
Ladies, do you feel like you are moving forward with God? Maybe? Slowly? Cautiously? Do you long to be free to run with God? To be on fire?! Come and learn from the life of the “Audacious Molly Bruno”. She was the inspiration for Miss Clara in “War Room”. The producer said he will always remember seeing Priscilla Shirer down on her knees crying as Molly prayed with her over the phone. Molly’s daughter, Marie, will share her mother’s adventures, advice and life lessons. Marie is an author, singer, speaker, and pastor’s wife. She has hosted her own TV show and written over 400 magazine articles. Come join us on September 14th for a free dinner and evening with humor and encouragement.
If you enjoy knitting or would like to learn, come and join this group of ladies who have a good time serving others! The Agape knitters meet at 10:00 am the first and third Mondays of each month at a members home, making prayer shawls, scarves and hats for our Room in the Inn Ministry as well as other projects. Questions? Call the church at 615.794.7403
OVER 10,000. BLANKETS MADE AS OF JANUARY 2018!
Lynda Buchanan was a part of a home sewing group in 2011 that decided to make blankets for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Centennial Hospital. A grandson of a friend in the group,Thomas McGregor, had passed away there. For 4 years the group averaged 1200 blankets a year. In 2014, the Blanket Ministry began their work at Oak Valley. Forty volunteers meet four times a year and do 1600 blankets every year. That is over 10,000 blankets over the years. In between church workdays many volunteers take blankets home to sew, wash, and iron. The church has included this ministry in their budget since 2015 which is approximately half of the cost that is needed so the ministry is dependent on donations from those moved by the Lord. Lynda feels very blessed for both the budget amount and the donations the ministry receives. She is very grateful to the church members for their financial help, physical support, and hard work. On January 22 they prepared 400 blankets that Lynda brought to the hospital the next day. A beautiful reflection of God’s love in these volunteers!
ANOTHER 400 BLANKETS WERE SEWN AND PREPARED AT THE JULY 23RD WORKSHOP!
THE NEXT BLANKET MINISTRY WORKSHOP IS SCHEDULED MONDAY, OCTOBER 22ND FROM 9:30 AM TO 2:00 PM IN THE FELLOWSHIP HALL. LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED!
