Watching these fantastic quilters create their masterpieces makes me think of Psalm 139:13, "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb."
These ladies get to work! Some even come Thursday evening to get set up and start their projects. It's a wonderful sight to see: the dining hall is completely taken over with sewing machines, fabric upon fabric, fabric cutters, grid rulers, ironing boards, irons, snacks, and these "crafty" ladies. And when the weekend is over, their creations are a wonderful sight to see.
The joy they have in what they have accomplished reminds me of the joy God has in creating us and our response to His woks: "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well" -- Psalm 139:14.
Our next Quilting Retreat will be in November. That gives you plenty of time to sign up. Are you a beginner? No worries, these ladies will hep with quilt math ;-)
Recently, our Administrative Assistant, Colleen, had surgery on her right elbow and wrist. We thank God that her surgery went well and she is recovering. However, a little over a week after her surgery she is already popping in to make sure we haven't left the office in chaos ;-)
In the meantime, it's been a joy having additional help through Alyssa. God speed on your recovery, Colleen! We are very blessed to have you here--15 years!!
Something tremendously awesome is happening this Family Fest!!!
Bringing Camp Phillip to you
New theme, new adventures, new games, new crafts, new snacks, new "tools", same Bible stories taught in new ways, and same Camp Phillip fun, as we worship, learn, and witness about Jesus Christ, who is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Day Camp training is coming up on Saturday, April 8 from 10AM-4PM. We will go through the five main activities in the manual--recreation, snack, craft, bible story, and witness tools--and share ideas about volunteers, marketing, decor, and more.
