The Bag Lady Ministry sews school bags for the Midwest Mission Distribution Center and United Methodist Committee On Relief (UMCOR). We need willing hands to mark and cut fabric, sew and iron seams. All are welcome to join us! Bring a bag lunch and enjoy a day of fun and fellowship working on this mission project. We meet in the youth room the first and third Friday of each month from 9:00 - 3:00. Please come even if you only have an hour to spare. The completed and filled bags are sent to children in the USA and around the world.
