Beads of Hope   ~  Wednesday, February 26, 2020 @ 1:00pm.

Join us as we begin another year of jewelry making from recycled bulletins. Same time, same place, but on a new day of the week – the last Wednesday of the month. All are welcome – Bring your friends. No experience needed. We’ll show you how to roll the beads and design the jewelry. Everyone can help in some part of the process.   If you’ve looked at the revolving stand in the church narthex where the entire line of Beads of Hope jewelry is displayed for sale, you know we’ve depleted a great deal of the inventory. The Good News – We had great sales in 2019. The Challenge – Making enough jewelry to restore a good and varied inventory to assure greats sales in 2020.  Again in 2020 Beads of Hope Sales and offerings from the Kids for Christ Sunday School Class will support the World Service Fund Apportionment.

For more information about Beads of Hope, contact Cheryl Turner at email 7172tomcat@att.net or call the church office at (864) 297-0382
