The purpose of our group is to combine service to others with good fellowship. We believe that building and strengthening the bonds of friendship among ourselves will surely make us more effective in our service to others. Although many of us already engage in other lay ministries at Emmanuel, as a group we seek service opportunities that involve our working together.
Tuesday Sewing Group
The Tuesday Sewing Group gathers each Tuesday morning in the chapel to celebrate The Holy Eucharist, Rite One, then on to the Guild Room for tea, conversation and work on current projects of each individual’s choice. The purpose of their work is to raise funds by producing hand-made, saleable items to be presented at Emmanuel’s summer or fall fairs. Among the group’s contributions to the church are the design and stitching of kneelers used in the chapel and at the altars; a new, white pall; the purchase and fitting of drapes in the Guild Room and the framed picture of Noah’s Ark which hangs in the chapel; look closely it is hand-stitched. There are no formal rules or plans and decisions are made following discussion and mutual agreement. Please contact the Parish office for more information about the Tuesday Sewing Group.
