South Plains’ Mission Crafters
provide handmade items for distribution throughPresbyterian Benevolence Foundation, Church World Service, Habitat for Humanity, and other local, regional, and international programs. All projects are knitted, crocheted, or stitched by members of the South Plains’ congregation and friends of the congregation around the country.
During a late summer worship service, the congregation participates in the dedication of items made in the past year by South Plains’ Mission Crafters.
The Sanctuary is decorated with baby caps, baby gowns, sweater and cap sets, blankets, and quilts. In addition, throughout the year Mission Crafters provide cross-stitch samplers for each family in a new Habitat for Humanity home in Charlottesville, Albemarle, and Fluvanna.
Members and friends of the congregation are invited to participate in the work of Mission Crafters.
All who knit, crochet, stitch, or use a sewing machine are welcome to join in this meaningful and helpful mission outreach program.
There is no official membership in Mission Crafters. Most of the work of Mission Crafters is done at home, but some members of the group meet after worship on the third Sunday of most months to coordinate projects and to consider occasional requests for new projects. The group provides patterns and supplies.
