LAST MEETING:  Christian Farmer’s Bracelets, Thursday August 3rd @7PM.  DPUMC Conference Room

Last month we gathered to make bracelets for the Christian Farmers Outreach.  The bracelets are simple leather bands with just 5 beads, and tied off at the ends.  The Christian Farmers Outreach uses the bracelets to help spread the word of Christ around the world.  The beads each have a significant meaning:

Gold — Represents Heaven  Somewhere we all want to go.  “ …and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.” Rev 21:18b

Dark — Represents Sin  Our Problem — All Are Sinners
“ For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”  Romans 3:23
“ For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”
 Romans 6:23

Red — Blood of Christ  God’s Remedy for Sin
“ But God commendeth His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”  Romans 5:8
This is what Jesus did for us. He loved us so much that He went to the cross on our behalf that we can have eternal forgiveness for our sin and be saved.

White — All May be Saved Now  Our Response to what Jesus did for us  on the cross.
“ For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
“ But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the Sons of God.”  John 1:12a

Green — Represents Growth  The Lord wants us to experience His peace and joy. He has a special purpose for us all.

“ But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ”  II Peter 3:18

NEXT MEETING:  Thanksgiving Favors Thursday October 5th @ 7PM.  DPUMC Conference Room. Contact: Bev Snyder

We’ll be making handmade favors for the residents of a nursing home and assisted living facility!  This annual activity is a favorite for the Sisterhood and those who are on the receiving end.  It’s a blessing to provide a small bit of joy to those who need it most!
