Women’s Fellowship

Looking Ahead! Women’s Retreat – Saturday, September 8 at La Foret.

The location is secured. Now a few folks are working on a workshop facilitator and other details that will be passed on as they are finalized.
La Foret is our UCC camp almost in our backyard – in Black Forest. It’s a beautiful camp setting that has opportunity for meditation, reflection, and community building.
Mark your calendars for this fall

Prayer Shawl Ministry

This group meets the first and third Wednesdays of the month in the mornings from 9:30 to 10:30 AM at Vista Grande Community Church.

The purpose and mission of this ministry is to combine the care and love of knitting into a prayerful ministry that reaches out to those in need of comfort.

After more than 5 years in this ministry, we are still continuing to receive lots of yarn and have industrious women constructing more gifts with loving attention and fellowship.

The yarn is blessed before its knitted; the knitters, knotters, and fringers are blessed to fulfill this ministry; and the completed shawls are blessed before given away. We have knit over 100 prayer shawls and counting. These shawls are presented to congregation members, visitors, friends, family members, and hospital patients; wherever there is a need for added blessings in times of illness, recovery, loss and even joy.

You are invited to join our shawl ministry. The more knitters and knotters we have, the more blessings will be shared throughout the world. If you have any questions, please call Donna at the church office at 719-599-3057.
