Common Threads Ministry
We're ready to start back up after our summer break!

We need people to make prayer shawls. If you knit or crochet or would like to learn, we could use your help. We have patterns available or a simple rectangular shawl works great too. We also have yarn and knitting needles in the Gladish room. You are welcome to attend our Common Threads gatherings or work from home. We meet Tuesdays at 7:30PM (immediately after Tuesdays Bible Study) in the Gladish Room. Bring your own project or work on a Prayer Shawl. Bring your finished shawl to the church office. All are welcome! Invite a friend! Questions? Call Dyanne Diaz-Piedra (908) 439-2689 or Debby Johnson at (908) 832-7230

Please leave donations in the Gladish Room; they will be delivered to the Food Bank each week. Wish List: Parmalat Milk, canned:meats—chicken, beef, tuna, soups, veggies, fruits in own juice, boxed stuffing, mac n’ cheese, diapers. Thank you!
