The public is invited to join Christ United Methodist Church, 300 N. Mill St., for a work day making “Little Dresses for Africa.” The work day will take place on Saturday, Feb. 24, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the church Gathering Room. For those not familiar with the program, little dresses are made simply by reconstructing pillowcases and adding embellishments. Once completed, the dresses are sent to orphanages, churches and schools in Africa to be distributed to young girls.
The intent of the mission project is not only to supply these girls with articles of clothing, but also to plant the message in the hearts of these young girls that they are worthy! Bring your own sewing machine or come help with cutting, pinning, ironing or hand-stitching; all skill levels are needed and welcome. The dresses are simple, yet time consuming to put together.
For more information, feel free to call the church office at 715-536-4676.
