Sewing Grace Ministry

Sewing Grace is a service ministry of Magee First United Methodist Church.  Our prayerful purpose is to provide a serviceable little dress that will become a prized possession for a grateful little girl in Honduras.  Planting the idea that each little girl is worthy of special consideration begins with sewing a simple little dress to be distributed to children in the Honduras mission field.  We also provide T-shirts for the little boys and blankets for the babies.  You can be a blessing to this ministry in several ways outlined below.  Prayerfully consider your role in planting hope in the heart of a deserving child with Sewing Grace Ministry.  Join us in McCarty-Pace Fellowship Hall at 8:30 am on August 17, September 21, October 19, and November 9, 2017.  Dates for 2018: January 18, February 15, and March 8.

Make a Difference in These Ways:

                            1.  Spread the word by enlisting others to sew and contribute.

                            2.  Donate a few yards of cloth/fabric for those who volunteer to sew.

                            3.  Donate a new or gently-used pillowcase to be sewn.

                            4.  Volunteer to cut, iron, sew, size, and/or pack dresses.

                            5.  Contribute a monetary gift for purchase of cloth, elastic, and thread.

We appreciate your prayers and support. May we spread Christian love as we take action to spread Christian hope to 'the least of these.' Jeanenne McIntyre Floyd
